 Rape Case:
Guineans fuming over press treatment ff attempted rape victim
By Fungai Maboreke/GIN

When former Socialist candidate for the presidency, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was released from house arrest last week when new evidence challenged the charges against him for the attempted rape of an African hotel maid at a luxury hotel in NYC, the move enraged many of her fellow countrymen.


Strauss-Kahn (known as “DSK”) was released on allegations that the victim – a young Muslim woman from Guinea - might have lied to the Grand Jury and misrepresented certain facts.

Until Friday, Strauss Kahn was held in detention since his arrest May 15th while seated in a plane bound for his home country France.

Mamoudou Diallo, eldest brother to the Guinean hotel maid, disputed the accusations against his sister that included headlines in the New York Post calling her a prostitute. "They're nothing but lies, all to discredit my sister,“ he said bitterly.  A lawsuit has been filed against the Post, alleging slander.

The alleged victim of sexual assault comes from the village of Thiacoule, 280 miles from the capital Conakry. It is a staunch Muslim community which survives on communal farming and cattle. She was described as a hard worker.

Thierno Maadjo Sow, president of the Guinean Organization for Human Rights asserted that,  "In this case it's all about the strong against the weak."

"Even if they find something compromising about this young lady, that doesn't  prove that nothing happened and that Strauss-Kahn didn't try to do something he shouldn't have," added Souleymane Bah, a communications expert.

“What matters most in this case is this: is DSK guilty yes or no? Did he try to rape this young woman yes or no? It's this question we need to find an answer to," Bah said. Strauss-Kahn still faces charges that he sexually assaulted the young woman.

Meanwhile, in France, a thirty-two-year old French author, Tristane Banon, has filed new charges against DSK.  Her mother is a prominent member of the French Socialist party. Banon claims Strauss-Kahn tried to rape her when she interviewed him in 2002.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
