The New York police have in hand the results of DNA analysis performed in Case Dominique Strauss-Kahn. According to reports published Monday, May 23, DNA tests have shown the presence of traces of semen of the former boss of the IMF on the clothes of the maid who accused him of sexual assault.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was the director of the International Monetary Fund from 2007 until his resignation May 18, 2011, is accused of sexual assault by a maid. The alleged victim, Nafissatou Diallo from Guinea, was working at the Sofitel Hotel in Manhattan, where DSK stayed during his stay in the United States. She was surprised by Strauss-Kahn coming out naked from the bathroom when she went in to clean the room. He allegedly sexually assaulted and locked her in the room before leaving to go directly to the airport, where he took a flight to Paris.
Police arrested DSK before the Air France flight took off and put him in custody. He was released three days later, on May 19, against a deposit of one million dollars and kept under constant supervision. He was put under house arrest in New York, and in these conditions he was forced to resign from his post as CEO of the IMF. His hopes of becoming the President of France Nicolas Sarkozy flying in the next elections are now also ruined.
DSK is really guilty?
Immediately after the arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the police took samples from his body and clothing, as well as those of the alleged victim and the bedroom and bathroom where the assault took place. Their bodies were also examined for injuries. Scratches were found on the torso of DSK dating to that time.
Analysis of samples required a little more time. The forensic DNA testing is to extract DNA from tissue or other material containing traces of semen or other bodily fluids of a person.
The DNA sample was used to establish the DNA profile of the person, and this profile compared to the DNA from the accused. In this case, according to reports published on the website atlantico.fr, DNA tests have shown the presence of traces of semen from Dominique Strauss-Kahn on the clothing of the victim, Nafissatou Diallo.
At the moment this information on the results of DNA analysis have not been officially confirmed, but France looks forward to the moment of truth and following the case of Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
