Strauss-Kahn moved to a luxury apartment on the Upper East Side of New York

New York. .- Under the supervision of armed guards and a security bracelet on the ankle, the former managing director of International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn was installed Friday in a temporary home on Broadway Avenue in New York but in the least glamorous of the streets of Manhattan.

The house is located near Wall Street and Ground Zero where the Twin Towers were within the ring of steel called the city, with surveillance cameras and increased police presence. Strauss-Kahn, who is accused of having attempted to rape a clerk at a hotel in New York last Saturday, was released on bail on Friday after spending four nights in a cell 3 by 4 meters at the Rikers Island prison , where he staked out for him not to commit suicide.

The former director of the IMF has denied the charges against him and says he will fight to clear his name. You must appear at a hearing on June 6, when formally respond to the charges, although the trial may take at least six months to begin. If you are found guilty, faces up to 25 years in prison.

Strauss-Kahn pays a private security company that protects the home 24 hours a day and kept under electronic surveillance to maintain compliance with conditions of bail. Prosecutors estimate that the cost of these security measures is about $ 200,000 a month. Strauss-Kahn could only leave his home to move into Manhattan when you need to go to court, meet with their lawyers, keeping appointments with your doctor and attend a weekly religious service.

Meanwhile, his wife, journalist Anne Sinclair, and his lawyers are trying to find another house to rent. Apparently, Sinclair had rented a luxury apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
