Ten years ago, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was charged with sexual assault while in New York City. Nafissatou Diallo made new revelations about his life a few years after the events.
The 10 years of the DSK case
It is a story that has made noise around the world. Ten years ago, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was accused of sexual assault by Nafissatou Diallo while at the Sofitel Hotel on 14 May 2011. The former maid had come to clean room 2806 when the former boss of the International Monetary Fund would have had inappropriate behavior with her.
The DSK affair turned the whole world upside down and Dominique Strauss-Kahn had to draw a line on his political ambitions. For his part, Nafissatou Diallo tried to find a semblance of life and disappeared from the radar. However, she made rare confidences to Olivier O’Mahony, the US correspondent for RTL, 10 years after the scandal.
Nafissatou Diallo “tracked down” after the DSK case
After the DSK affair, Nafissatou Diallo experienced a real descent into hell. The former Sofitel employee said she felt “stalked” and had a hard time coping with media pressure. She had the feeling of being “deprived of justice”. ” She was followed by car in the parking lot of her building, she still has this feeling of insecurity,” the journalist explained to our colleagues. Although the case was never solved, Nafissatou Diallo signed an agreement in 2012 with Dominique Strauss-Kahn and received more than 1.5 million euros in damages.
Nafissatou Diallo now lives in the suburbs of New York in a secure building. With money from Dominique Strauss-Kahn, she set up a restaurant, Chez Amina, in the Bronx. But she had to give it up after a fire, says Gala. She also attempted to write a book to tell her side of the story on the DSK case. However, according to Paris Match, it was not a great success.
