Maid in Strauss-Kahn scandal was good worker: hotel
The 32-year-old woman who told police she was sexually assaulted by IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been employed for the past three years at the Sofitel and was a good employee, the hotel's director told AFP Sunday.
Jorge Tito, director of the luxury lodgings Jorge Tito at the Sofitel, told AFP that the hotel had "complete satisfaction" in the quality of the alleged victim's work. The woman is employed as a maid at the hotel.
"We are available to the police authorities for their investigation" into Strauss-Kahn's alleged sexual assault on the woman, Tito added, declining additional comment.
New York police arrested Strauss-Kahn on a plane about to take off JFK International Airport Saturday and charged him with sexually assaulting and attempting to rape the maid.
US media said she had entered his hotel suite thinking it was unoccupied.
Strauss-Kahn's lawyers said he denied all the accusations and was planning to plead not guilty.
