A judge rejected the objection of the prosecutor who asked to drop charges against Strauss-Kahn

A New York judge denied the request for a special prosecutor for the rape case against former IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, filed by counsel for Nafissatou Diallo, the Guinean immigrant of 33 years accusing him. The judge rejected the prosecutor's objection Cyrus Vance, who yesterday asked to withdraw charges against DSK.

"The court concluded that nothing justifies the disqualification of the Prosecutor. Therefore, the petition has been rejected," says a ruling by Judge Michael Obus in response to the petition by lawyer Kenneth Thompson. The ruling occurred one hour before the former IMF chief with his wife came to court in Manhattan where a judge must tell you if, as has asked the Prosecutor's Office dropped all charges against him.

Former IMF chief made his entrance surrounded by heavy security and a wide media attention since the early hours of the morning are a number of media and onlookers who crowd around the courthouse to see if finally case is closed. If the presiding judge, Michael Obus, accepts the recommendation of the prosecutor and dropped all charges against the known French politician and economist, Strauss-Kahn might leave the United States today and take a flight to France.
