Strauss-Kahn court hearing delayed to August
The next hearing in the sexual assault case against former IMF director Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been delayed for two weeks, the New York Times reported Monday.
New York prosecutors and Strauss-Kahn's attorneys agreed to the delay so both sided could further investigate the case. The July 18 hearing is now scheduled to take place August 1, DPA reported.
Strauss-Kahn, 62, was arrested on sexual assault charges stemming from a May incident in a Manhattan hotel. His defence attorneys have urged the prosecutors to drop the charges following questions by prosecutors about the credibility of his accuser.
