The Guinean maid, who accused former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault, may face perjury charges and she can also be deported from the US following claims that she lied under oath, a news report said.

The 32-year-old hotel maid is under intense scrutiny after New York prosecutors told a court on Friday that they had found holes in her story which may seriously damage her credibility as a witness, 'Daily Telegraph' online reported.

Moreover, local media reports also alleged that the maid at Sofitel Hotel was doing double duty as a prostitute, collecting cash on the side from male guests, and that Strauss -Kahn may have misunderstood the situation on May 14.

Frenchwoman to sue Strauss-Kahn
Tristane Banon, a French journalist and writer, will bring legal action this week for attempted rape against Strauss-Kahn, her lawyer said. Banon, 32, has alleged that Strauss-Kahn invited her to an apartment in 2003 promising to give her an interview, and instead pounced on her like "a rutting chimpanzee".
