Strauss-Kahn, referring to the August 1 "prosecutor drop charges"

The next hearing of the case, Strauss-Kahn has been moved to New York from July 18 to August 1. The lawyers have told the former director general of the International Monetary Fund, adding his hope that the prosecutors have formally charged Strauss-Kahn for attempted rape and sexual assault, withdraw their accusations.

"We hope that by that date, the prosecutor takes a decision in our opinion necessary to drop the charges", stressed in a written note of the defenders of Strauss-Kahn, Benjamin Brafman lawyers and William Taylor. The Manhattan prosecutor's office has said in a statement that the investigation is still ongoing and that no decision has yet been taken.
