Strauss-Kahn lawyer mum on IMF job plans

18th May 2011, Comments 0 comments

The personal lawyer for jailed International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn declined Wednesday to reveal what his client's future plans were for his position as head of the IMF.

With the IMF board waiting to know about Strauss-Kahn's intentions, his personal attorney William Taylor would only say that he expects an eventual resolution.

"I think in the end it will be resolved," he told AFP by phone.

Asked if he had been in communication with the IMF board -- which yesterday said it had had no contact with Strauss-Kahn head since his Saturday arrest in New York for allegedly sexually assaulting a hotel chambermaid -- Taylor declined comment.

He also refused to comment on whether he had talked with his client about his future at the IMF.

Asked whether he would be the one to communicate Strauss-Kahn's plans to the board, he replied: "I would think so."
