New York. .- Jeffrey Shapiro, the lawyer for the woman who accused the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Dominique Strauss-Khan, sexual abuse and attempted rape, said today that there was no consensual sexual relationship between his client and French politician. "I think his claims that consensual sex was not true," said Shapiro, who represents the employee of the New York luxury hotel in which allegedly occurred on Saturday the allegations, speaking Wednesday to the NBC .

Shapiro emphasized that "there was no mutual agreement that the hotel room" in response to statements by the defense of Strauss-Kahn have hinted the possibility that during the trial his client stating that there was a sexual relationship by mutual agreement. The French political media's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said yesterday the press that in its opinion, some of the evidence presented by the prosecution "does not agree to a meeting by force." Meanwhile they get to know details about the alleged victim of DSK, as living in the neighborhood of the Bronx, in a building rented to single adults with HIV-AIDS virus and who previously lived in another apartment managed by the organization Harlem United Community AIDS, published today by The New York Post.

That newspaper also indicated that due to the U.S. medical privacy law could not verify if the woman has AIDS or is infected with HIV, but includes a testimonial from a worker of that organization, says that to live in one of those apartments , you have to be HIV positive. "The apartment is not rented in his name" said that person to the Post, as the organization rented houses under his name and then place the beneficiaries of their programs.

The Post also revealed that the woman "told police that after being sodomized, spat the semen on the ground and that investigators are doing DNA testing of that sample." In his remarks to NBC, Shapiro also said his client "is very scared and feels overcome" by the situation, which it regards as "a nightmare", but is also willing to cooperate with police and prosecutors in New York.

"He has an agenda. He's doing because he thinks it is their responsibility," said Shapiro to NBC about this woman, an African immigrant of Guinean origin, 32 years old, Muslim, widow and mother of a teenager, who arrived seven years the United States as an asylee. The woman, who according to the French press called Nafisatu Dialo, works in New York hotel where the incident occurred three years ago, but has not yet been able to return to their work.

Strauss-Kahn, DSK also called the French and American press, is in custody on Rikers Island. New York prosecutors, accusing DSK with seven counts of sexual abuse and attempted rape for which he could be sentenced to prison terms ranging from 3 to 25 years in the case of the most serious, for his part said that they have evidence forensics to prove its allegations.
