Dominique Strauss -Kahn Resigns as IMF Chief
Dominique Strauss-Kahn has submitted his resignation as head of IMF. In his statement, he also asserted his innocence of the charged crimes.
“I want to say that I deny with the greatest possible firmness all of the allegations that have been made against me.”
His new request for bail will be heard at 2:15 today by NY State Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Obus. Strauss-Kahn has also submitted a waiver of extradition, allowing the U.S. to return him to the U.S. from any country in which he is found.
“In the event I fail to voluntarily appear in the New York court for any such proceedings, I waive the issuance and service of the warrant provided by law for my extradition from the Republic of France or any other jurisdiction.”
Prediction: Bail will(and should be) granted.
