Even though it is yet too soon to tell whether he's guilty or not, does the rape charge aimed at IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn can eventually result in global repercussions?

IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn could be facing an uphill legal battle given that the chambermaid of a New York City hotel who accused the IMF chief of rape and unlawful imprisonment is described as a "model employee" of the hotel that the IMF chief stayed in. Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested after boarding a plane on his way to a very important meeting with the German chancellor back in Sunday, May 15, 2011.
As one of the worthy contenders for the next French presidency, the rape charges could not only jeopardize his political prospects but also came in a time when it had global repercussions - i.e. the IMF chief and his team are still formulating ways to help the economically ailing members of the Eurozone with their respective sovereign debt problems. Even though it is still too soon to tell how deep in trouble the IMF chief is since the NYPD forensics team are still gathering evidence of the alleged crime. Only time will tell if the incident will complicate the debt relief of ailing Eurozone countries.
