Charges against Dominique Strauss Kahn dropped

The case against Strauss Kahn ends with the dismissal of the case for lack of credibility (repetitive lies) of the defense. The specific reason put Dominique Strauss Kahn in the position of victim (damage to his career) and, theoretically, he could ask for compensation from the prosecutor and his office.
The ace of Strauss Kahn is his wife Anne Sinclair, who is rich, but above all very aggressive and very stubborn. She is also rather vengeful.
Relatives of the couple say she is the one who will decide on the next move...
Stay tuned!
