Paris. .- The Managing Director and former International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn is "good" and is "optimistic" about their situation, as noted on Thursday one of his lawyers, William Taylor, a French broadcaster RTL. Strauss-Kahn was arrested Saturday at an airport in New York after an employee of the hotel they had stayed denounced him for attempted rape.

On Monday, former IMF chief appeared before a Manhattan judge, who denied bail. As explained by Taylor, Strauss-Kahn, that from that day is being held in prison Rykers Island, New York, "okay." "It's upbeat and happy", he added, without elaborating. He has also stated that the defense hopes to "get his release today or tomorrow at the latest next week." The lawyers will ask again today his release on bail of one million dollars and provided that you also put an electronic bracelet to monitor their movements.
