PARIS, May 15 (Reuters) - The New York chambermaid who has alleged that IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexually assaulted her had worked at the hotel for three years and met its standards, the property’s manager said on Sunday.
“We would like to point out that our employee worked at the Sofitel New York for three years and was completely satisfactory in terms of her work and behaviour,” manager Jorge Tito said in a statement sent from Accor’s (ACCP.PA) Paris office.
The International Monetary Fund managing director was charged on Sunday with sexually assaulting the maid, in a scandal that could spell the end of his career at the Fund and wreck his hopes of running for president of France. His lawyer says he denies the accusations.
Tito said he could not give any more details due to the legal proceedings. (Reporting by John Irish; Editing by Catherine Bremer)
