Nafissatou Diallo, the American resident Guinean national whose allegation of rape against IMF boss, Dominique Strauss Kahn earned him his referred position may have shot herself in the leg through her actions .
She is likely face deportation procedure any moment from now to get her out of America soon as her numerous statements during the case has exposed her as an immigrant with faulty documentations.
Prosecutors said she had admitted to lying on her application for asylum,a according to immigration lawyers who spoke on Tuesday.
“Lying on sworn statements is almost a guarantee the case will be reopened,” said lawyer Jason Dzubow. “She’s going to have a hard time.”
She concocted a story about harassment from the dictatorship in Guinea, and used a bogus visa to enter the country in January 2004.
She fabricated the tale of a gang rape in Guinea to gain sympathy and asylum in New York, prosecutors said.
“With all the press attention, my educated guess is that they are going to look at her case again,” said immigration lawyer Zachary Sanders. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.”
Diallo’s fellow West African immigrants in the Bronx were rallying to her defense.
“It doesn’t matter if she wasn’t honest about some things,” said Emmanuel Donkor, 26. “If she was raped, that’s all that counts.”
“He should have let a jury decide,” Barry said. “I thought this was America. I’m more than disappointed.”
