NEW YORK — A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that the accuser in the New York City sex assault case against a former International Monetary Fund leader has lied about circumstances surrounding the alleged attack.
The official also says prosecutors also believe Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s accuser has lied about her background. The official is speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss details not yet made public in court.
The official says prosecutors believe the hotel housekeeper lied about various details on her application for asylum in the U.S., including a claim that she had been raped in her native Guinea.
