This is not a sick joke

21 May

Why has Dominique Strauss-Kahn been released on bail? John McConnell, Assistant district attorney  has already stated: “The proof against him is substantial and continues to grow every day.”  He has been alleged to have committed such crimes as attempted rape, sexual abuse and criminal sexual acts. Given the circumstances he should have not been given the latitude and flexibility to have been released on bail.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn should be remanded in full police custody, given the rights of a trial without question, but given the already established incriminating evidence bail should have been refused. Prosecutors are already making preparations to present their case and the public will not withstand an unnecessary delay to proceedings being started. We had altogether similar antics with Made-off.

What is also important here is that a full investigation is now undertaken at the IMF and its internal practices.  If he is prepared to transgress to such heinous crimes anything of a lesser nature, by extension,  he would have had the propensity to commit. We need to rest his moral compass. This is not an investigation of sexual assault, it’s a wider matter of the head of one of the world’s most powerful organisations (the IMF) and he’s blurry behaviour. The regulators have an opportunity to redeem themselves and to really delve into the IMF and other organisations to unlock the circles of corruption, fraud and favouritism which are more likable to third world dictatorships.
