A New York judge is expected to drop the attempted rape case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, possibly bringing to an end a two-month scandal involving the ex-head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The judge was believed to be planning a dismissal of the case on Tuesday at the request of prosecutors, according to news agencies. The prosecution expressed concerns about the credibility of the hotel chambermaid who accused him. A civil case against Strauss-Kahn is still pending in New York, and investigators are probing another attempted rape accusation against him in France. Strauss-Kahn quit as chief of theIMF after the accusations by the maid, Nafissatou Diallo, in May, which he denies. The testimony of Diallo, a 32-year-old hotel maid from Guinea who accused Strauss-Kahn, 62, of sexual assault, was not convincing beyond a reasonable doubt to present to a jury, prosecutors said in a court filing on Monday.
