Ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who had been under house arrest in a Manhattan loft, has been freed Friday.
The reason is that the credibility of his accuser, a hotel maid, is in serious question. Strauss-Kahn, however, remains charged with forcing the woman to to perform oral sex.
"It is a great relief. It is so important in this country that people, especially the media, refrain from judgment until the facts are all in," Strauss-Kahn´s attorney, William Taylor, said in an interview.
