The sex assault case against former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn appears to be in trouble after reported concerns about the alleged victim’s credibility.

Prosecutors plan to outline their concerns about the 32-year-old maid’s credibility to the judge in Friday’s court hearing, the New York Times reports.

Law enforcement officials have told US media the accuser has repeatedly lied since the alleged attack on 14 May. The Guinean-born maid also appeared to have lied in her asylum application, officials reportedly said.

Strauss-Kahn is due in court on Friday. His lawyers are expected to ask for his bail conditions to be relaxed. Kahn denies the charges.

Strauss-Kahn resigned as head of the IMF in May this year over the alleged allegations. The IMF appointed Christine Lagarde to head up the organisation earlier this week.
