Dominique Strauss-Kahn: Greece will Default, Accept to Take the Loss

Dominique Strauss-Kahn thinks Greece will default. Dominique Strauss-Kahn acknowledged having committed a mistake for what he called a “moral failing” with a New York hotel maid on Sunday on French television TF1, but he said that he had not tried to rape her. He said he let down his wife and French people and admitted that he won’t be a candidate for the next year’s presidency election but he hinted for a future political comeback.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn said that what happened with Nafissatou Diallo was a moral failing which he is not proud of. He insisted that police had not found any scratches, wounds or any other sign of violence on Nafissatou Diallo’s body. Ex-IMF director also denied assaulting Tristane Banon, a French author who is the daughter of a family friend, who filed a complaint against him. She says that he tried to rape her in an empty Paris studio apartment in 2003.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn also talked about the economy and Greece’s debt crisis. DSK supports the scenario that Greece will default on its debt, saying that we must accept to recognize the fact that we must take the loss. His statements are surprising as he was the director of the IMF a short time ago and he oversaw the first bailout for Greece.
