Bail Denied for IMF Chief

A New York judge has ordered the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, to be remanded in custody after prosecutors expressed fears that he might flee to France to escape charges of sexually assaulting a hotel maid.

The judge, Melissa Jackson, refused a request for bail, agreeing that Strauss-Kahn, who was pulled off a Paris-bound plane on Saturday and charged with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment, represented a flight risk.

His defence lawyers said Strauss-Kahn denied the charges, and one of them, Ben Brafman, said it was "quite likely he will be exonerated". Earlier they said Strauss-Kahn had agreed to undergo scientific and forensic tests and intends to "vigorously" defend himself.

The prosecution on Monday compared Strauss-Kahn to Roman Polanski, the film director who fled the US in 1978 after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with an underage girl. Prosecutors said they were investigating an additional incident, without specifying what it related to, and that they were waiting for the forensic information from the hotel.

The defence offered $1m (£618,000) bail and said the IMF chief was prepared to reside with his daughter in Manhattan and wear an electronic bracelet. But the judge refused.

The former French finance minister, who as IMF head earns $420,930 a year tax free, was taken to a police holding cell in Harlem.

DB, is this what you're talking about?

Germany's government spokesman Steffen Seibert says his country would like another European to replace the current IMF chief if he stands down.

"Europe doesn't have a right to the director's chair, but in the current situation when the IMF is especially needed to fight the crisis in some euro states, the German government would favour a good European candidate," Seibert told a press conference.

........Looks like a battle is about to start. Time to grab the popcorn and beer.

Who gives a fuck what is happening with this stooge. Its just more propaganda and attempts to sway sentiment and/or distract, otherwise it would be wiped from all major media channels. So as you are sucking it up, keep that in mind.

All these rich elite shitbags have major skeletons in their closet. Under the premise that they are insane, psychotic and inbred one can only wonder how ugly their souls really are. When its time for them to go or they say/do the wrong the thing....then it appears they set'um up and let'em fall hard. Sarkozy is a powerful man among the elitist.

I wonder what the real story is? We'll never know which just confirms that everything in the news is a circus act.

Oh...and of course, he's innocent until proven guilty. LMFAO!!! Maybe for the elite. Otherwise, you're GUILTY until you PROVE your innocence.

IMF's Crisis-Management Challenge



Given what is going on in the world, specifically the European financial crisis, is it your sense that the IMF should have another European as managing director?

No. I don't think that argument carries a lot of weight.
