The embattled managing director for the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was denied bail yesterday, after being arrested and charged over the weekend with raping a Manhattan hotel maid. His arrest has shocked and angered many in France, where he was considered by many a strong candidate for the presidency. Some of those reacting from Strauss-Kahn's country believe he has been unfairly treated, and find it impossible to believe that he committed such a crime.

I do not believe that Dominique Strauss-Khan is guilty at all! He is an honourable person who has tried to bring in reform within the IMF. This has to be some sort of a joke where the woman was dressed in a <a href="">fancy dress</a> costume or something. Something's fishy!
