卡恩性侵案(中英)

Dominique Strauss-Kahn case dismissed曼哈顿高等法院8月23日召开听证会,撤销对国际货币基金组织(IMF)前总裁多米尼克·斯特劳斯-卡恩的性侵刑事指控。

在法官决定撤销所有指控后,卡恩随后发表声明表示,过去的几个月对他和他的家庭而言就是一场噩梦,他对法官、家人以及他的支持者表示感谢。他表示,对于曼哈顿地区检察官接受这一案件不得不撤销的意见感到满意,他对他们的专业精神表示感激。

The sex assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn took yet another legal turn on Tuesday, when a New York judge dismissed the charges - but put the order on hold pending an appeal. State Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said he wouldn't dismiss the case until an appeal is decided on whether a special prosecutor should be appointed. That appeal was expected to be decided later on Tuesday.

Wearing a dark gray suit, blue shirt and a navy and gold striped tie, Strauss-Kahn appeared resolute during the brief appearance in Manhattan State Supreme Court. He smiled and shook hands with an audience member as his wife, the journalist Anne Sinclair, sat nearby. They left court without speaking to reporters. Obus said he saw no reason not to dismiss the case. But noting that the accuser was still seeking to get a special prosecutor appointed, Obus said, “I am going to stay the effectiveness of the order I am about to enter.”Shortly before the hearing Obus had denied the request to appoint a special prosecutor, saying there was nothing that would disqualify Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance from heading the case. At the hearing, Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon formally recommended the case be dismissed.

The case captured international attention as a seeming cauldron of sex, violence, power and politics: A promising French presidential contender, known in his homeland as the Great Seducer, accused of a brutal and contemptuous attack on a West African immigrant who had come to clean his plush suite.land as the Great Seducer, accused of a brutal and contemptuous attack on a West African immigrant who had come to clean his plush suite.
