‘Nude’ Strauss-Kahn grabbed my breasts: Maid
The hotel maid who accused former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault has claimed that he emerged naked from his room to greet her when she entered his room and then grabbed her breasts.
Nafissatou Diallo, 32, broke her silence in a TV interview on Monday after waiving her right to anonymity, reports the Sun.
She claims ‘crazy’ Dominique Strauss-Kahn, 62, then forced her to perform a sex act.
And she feared she would be killed after later learning of the Frenchman''s high profile.
Diallo said she was shocked when Strauss-Khan walked out naked from the bathroom of his luxury New York suite on May 14.
She said: “I was like. ''I'm so sorry.'' I turned my head, he come to me and grabbed my breasts, ''No you don't have to be sorry.’”
She claimed Strauss-Khan told her: “You're beautiful.” She added: “I said, ''Sir, stop this. I don't want to lose my job.'' He said, ''You're not going to lose your job.'' I push him. I get up. I wanted to scare him. I said, ''Look, there is my supervisor right there''.”
The mum of one said he behaved like ‘a crazy man’, adding: “I was like stop, stop, stop this, but he keep pushing me, pushing me. I was so afraid, I was so scared.”
Diallo also told ABC News she feared for her life after learning the next day of Strauss-Kahn''s high profile.
She said: “I think, ''They are going to kill me. They're going to kill me so no one knows.''"
It has been reported that prosecutors may drop the case next week because of ‘serious credibility issues’ with Diallo.
She is accused of lying about being gang-raped in Guinea to win US asylum. But she said: “God is my witness I'm telling the truth.”
Strauss-Kahn has denied the charges, including attempted rape.
