It has probably been one of the most controversial days and weeks of his life but decisions had to be made and one critical one was made by no less than the (International Monetary Fund) IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn as he quit his roles, duties and responsibilities in his post following allegations of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel maid.
In a statement released by the 62 year old economist and politician most notable for the name, DSK, he confirmed that he had already told the board of his intention to resign “with immediate effect”. Again, he denied having anything to do with the allegations hurled at him.
The statement of the IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn read as follows, “It is with infinite sadness that I feel compelled today to present to the Executive Board my resignation from my post of Managing Director of the IMF. I think at this time first of my wife – whom I love more than anything – of my children, of my family, of my friends. I think also of my colleagues at the Fund; together we have accomplished such great things over the last three years and more. To all, I want to say that I deny with the greatest possible firmness all of the allegations that have been made against me. I want to protect this institution which I have served with honor and devotion, and especially – especially – I want to devote all my strength, all my time, and all my energy to proving my innocence.”
