New York prosecutors will continue their investigation and re-examine evidence in the case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, charged with attempting to rape a hotel maid, the judge in the case said on Friday.

"There will be no rush to judgment," New York Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said at a hearing where the former IMF chief was released from house arrest and his bail revoked.

"The people will continue to investigate and re-examine the matter as appropriate."

Sources close to the case say questions about the credibility of Strauss-Kahn's accuser have been raised. Strauss-Kahn was charged with sexual assault at the Sofitel Hotel in New York on May 14 and has been held under house arrest. His next court appearance is set for July 18.
