Hotel maid in Strauss-Kahn case speaks out

The New York hotel maid who accused former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of attempting to rape her said in an interview published on Newsweek’s website on Sunday that he appeared as a “crazy man” and attacked her when she entered his room. Nafissatou Diallo also gave the newsmagazine and ABC News permission to identify her by name. The magazine interview marks the first time the 32-year-old Guinean immigrant to the United States has publicly spoken to the media since she shocked the world with allegations that Strauss-Kahn emerged naked from the bathroom of his luxury suite on May 14 and forced her to perform oral sex. Until now, Reuters had kept to the practice in the United States of protecting the identity of alleged rape victims. ABC News on Sunday also announced it would broadcast an interview with Diallo on Monday morning. “I want justice. I want him to go to jail,” she said in excerpts from the ABC News interview released on Sunday. “I want him to know that there is some places you cannot use your money, you cannot use your power when you do something like this,” Diallo said. ABC reported Diallo also acknowledged “mistakes” but said that should not stop prosecutors from going forward.
