[June 23 The Libertine: Johnny Depp as a Dominique Strauss-Kahn-like politician ]

Johnny Depp as a Dominique Strauss-Kahn-like politician

Johnny Depp as a Dominique Strauss-Kahn-like politician?

At Cannes, Warner Bros. was “involved,” but the project “isn’t being developed at” the studio. Brett Ratner is going full steam ahead with his new project, “The Libertine,” starring Johnny Depp as a Dominique Strauss-Kahn-like politician accused of sexual assault — despite all the controversy surrounding the star. Ratner announced his plans for the film at the Cannes Film Festival on May 11.
Less than two weeks later, May 23, Depp was hit with divorce papers from Amber Heard, and the actress and her friends have leveled intense allegations of physical abuse against Depp, while his pals defended him.
“The Libertine” will star Depp as “a powerful French politician who endures house arrest in a luxury NYC apartment while awaiting trial for sexual assault against a hotel maid,” Deadline reported. The film’s “loosely based” on the 2011 DSK sex-abuse scandal. Criminal charges were dropped against DSK, who settled a civil suit with the maid for an undisclosed amount. Ratner added, “The whole movie takes place in one location, and I’ve never done that before. It’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read. People are surprised, because I’ve always been a commercial filmmaker, and this is a much smaller movie.”
But an insider told Page Six of the project,“Everybody agreed it would be impossible to still use Depp in light of the [abuse allegations].” Casting Depp “would create some controversy; they decided it was too hot to go near. You can’t do it. Brett would be devastated as this is a dream project.” But a rep for Ratner said of dumping Depp, “It’s not true,” adding the film is in “active development” with the actor attached. The film’s produced by Lloyd Braun and Andrew Mittman.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s hopes of rehabilitation suffered a blow June 16 2016,  when he was ordered to pay €10,000 to anti-prostitution campaigners after losing a civil court case.   The former managing director of the International Monetary Fund knew full well that the women with whom he had sexual relations at orgies were prostitutes, Douai appeal court ruled.   Mr Strauss-Kahn, 67, was acquitted of aggravated pimping last year after telling a criminal trial that his recreational activities included sex with strangers at libertine parties

DSK with Thierry Leyne
Prime Minister Manuel Valls beat Strauss-Kahn in the study by French polling firm Viavoice, which asked would-be voters who would make a “good candidate” for the Left in the 2017 ballot. The Next French presidential election is scheduled to be held in April and May 2017 [640+ days]. If voters are not really paying attention to the election, do not expect the polls to be an honest portrayal of future outcomes.
Valls claimed 47 percent support, with Strauss-Kahn as the runner-up with 37 percent. Strauss-Kahn proved to be less popular among Socialist Party sympathisers who participated in the survey. Constituents who tend to vote for left-wing candidates favoured PM Valls, Lille Mayor Martine Aubry, Royal and Hollande over the disgraced former International Monetary Fund chief. French President François Hollande managed only 23 percent support, finishing fifth among left-wing leaders.

[July 20 2014 DSK Global Investment Fund: Vanessa Strauss-Kahn redux]

  DSK was first married in 1967 to Hélène Dumas, whom he met in 1963 in the south of France when she was 16 and he was 14, when he was in the equivalent of 12th grade. When his parents opposed their living together, the pair got married. They would have a daughter, Vanessa.

Hélène,Vanessa: DSK was first married in 1967 to Hélène Dumas, whom he met in 1963 in the south of France when she was 16 and he was 14, when he was in the equivalent of 12th grade. When his parents opposed their living together, the pair got married. They would have a daughter, Vanessa.

The consulting firm of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, made 2.55 million euros in turnover in 2013.

Blacklisted in France, Dominique Strauss-Kahn has always been rated abroad. DSK created Parnassus in September 2012 to monetize his lectures and advice to investors. In 2013, the former IMF chief has “pocketed” 2.55 million euros in turnover via Parnassus, four times more than in 2012, when the exercise was, it is true, lasted only four months. Once expenses paid – including that of a driver for 18 149 euros and 358 euros in fines – and taxes paid, the former presidential posted a comfortable profit of 766,334 euros, on which he chose to immediately pay 700,000 euros in dividends.
DSK delivers its opinions on the global economy for a price ranging from 50,000 to 150,000 euros for half an hour. a Chinese internet company, a group of Korean media and a Ukrainian forum have already paid up. DSK also charged consulting services to the Serbian government, a bank of South Sudan and the Russian development bank regions.

This is not all. In September 2013, the former Minister joined his friend Thierry Leyne to create the banking LSK & Partners. Listed on Euronext, it is now worth 57 million euros. DSK holds 20.2% via Parnassus. Finally, in March 2014 with Thierry Leyne and his economist daughter Vanessa , he launched the DSK Global Investment Fund. The partners hope to raise $ 2 billion from institutional investors. Strauss-Kahn, who has never managed money for investors, will be running the fund, with his daughter, Vanessa Strauss-Kahn, a Paris-based professor of economics at ESCP Europe, overseeing the firm’s research. Institutional investors, such as public pension plans, often require a three-year track record before committing large amounts of money to funds. “If someone is highly experienced and connected in the world of academia and finance, that’s all well and good but without money-management experience, it is hard as a fiduciary to entrust our funds with them,” said Michael Rosen, chief investment officer of Angeles Investment Advisors LLC, a Santa Monica, California-based firm that advises clients on hedge fund investments. “Maybe he will surround himself with a great team of portfolio managers and analysts but realistically I wouldn’t invest in someone with no track record.” DSK was first married in 1967 to Hélène Dumas, whom he met in 1963 in the south of France when she was 16 and he was 14, when he was in the equivalent of 12th grade. When his parents opposed their living together, the pair got married. They would have a daughter, Vanessa.

In this busy schedule, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, however, will find a place for the Carlton Affair trial in February 2015. With 12 others, he will be judged in Lille Criminal Court for “aggravated pimping meeting.”

France 2 featured a documentary on the euro where Dominique Strauss-Kahn comes, without jargon, among other witnesses.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn was a flop on France 2 May 16, only 1, 9 million viewers. Just ten days of the European elections and on the eve of the release of the film in France Welcome to New York from Abel Ferrara (inspired by the case of the Sofitel), France 2 has convinced DSK to speak on the euro in pre-recorded interview conducted by David Pujadas and Daniel Cohen. In fact, this interview is divided into several sequences in a set where others are expressed during the documentary aired Thursday at 20 h 45 with a debate in stride.

In total, the confidences of DSK does not exceed five minutes, but the announcement of his presence is a small media event insofar as his last televised speech of September 2011 on TF1. This return to the front of the stage for the former IMF chief is certainly also a factor in mobilizing public television viewers but the audience on a European issue seen by DSK,attracted only 1.9 viewers. Probably in the first half of 2015, ithe trial of the case of Carlton “affair” is expected.

The judges also argue that Mr Strauss-Kahn deliberately sought to “cover his tracks” by giving one of his mobile phone cards to one of the alleged organisers of the sessions and using coded language for female participants including “gifts” and “equipment”.

The judges also argue that Mr Strauss-Kahn deliberately sought to “cover his tracks” by giving one of his mobile phone cards to one of the alleged organisers of the sessions and using coded language for female participants including “gifts” and “equipment”.

In a document justifying why they chose to send him to trial – leaked to Le Figaro newspaper – the two investigating magistrates in charge of the case said he was clearly the “lynchpin” of a prostitution ring operating out of the Carlton hotel in Lille, northern France.
The indictment states that “all those present could not have been unaware” that prostitutes had taken part in these soirées as “the age and appearance of these female participants left little doubt as to their activities”.
The judges said these get-togethers, mainly in hotels, amounted to “sexual consumption”, or even “carnage on a pile of mattresses on the floor”.
Their nature made it clear “this was in no way a question of libertine acts” but about “factory line sex” and “orders for services”.
Text messages made it clear that DSK, as he is known in France, “kept control over the planning of the soirées, which were organised according to his diary availability,” they wrote.
Some took place in a flat rented by Mr Strauss-Kahn, which suggests, they wrote, that he “committed a material act of pimping” as “making premises available for prostitution is pimping”.
The judges also argue that Mr Strauss-Kahn deliberately sought to “cover his tracks” by giving one of his mobile phone cards to one of the alleged organisers of the sessions and using coded language for female participants including “gifts” and “equipment”.
Last month, Mr Strauss-Kahn blasted an “exclusively incriminatory judicial investigation” after the prosecutor chose not to appeal the judges’ decision to send him to trial along with 13 other defendants.
His lawyer, Richard Malka, slammed a “relentless” and “absurd” judicial onslaught on his client tantamount to a “witch hunt”.
The Carlton case is one of a series of probes that were launched in the wake of Mr Strauss-Kahn’s 2011 arrest in New York on suspicion of sexually assaulting a hotel chambermaid.
The judges’ scathing assessment of the one-time French presidential favourite comes after he said he gave two interviews in which he claimed he had “no problem with women”, and that his political career was “in the past”.
He said his new career as an economic consultant to big business and politicians was booming, amid reports the Serbian government is considering contracting him as an adviser.
[July 27]

DSK is one of 13 people, including a senior police officer and two businessmen, who were sent for trial July 25 for “aggravated pimping as part of a group” for their alleged part in organising hotel orgies. A more serious accusation of “conspiracy” was dropped.

There will be the trial of the Carlton Affair. On July 26, the Lille judges announced referral of Dominique Strauss-Kahn to the Criminal Court for “aggravated procuring in a meeting alongside 13 others. Magistrates investigating the so-called Carlton Affair – allegations of hotel orgies with prostitutes in France, Belgium and the United States – decided today to overrule the state prosecutor and send Mr Strauss-Kahn for trial.

Both the prosecution and Mr Strauss-Kahn, 64, can appeal against the ruling. If they fail, the former IMF chief and French finance minister will finally face a trial for sexual misconduct after a series of failed prosecutions or out-of-court settlements in other cases. An allegation of sexual assault against writer Tristane Banon in Paris in 2003 did not result in criminal charges because it had passed the legal time limit. In October last year, French prosecutors decided to drop an inquiry into allegations of gang rape at a hotel in Washington after one of the women involved who had made the claim retracted her evidence.

The state prosecutor had recommended that the Carlton affair charges against Strauss-Kahn be dropped on the grounds of a lack of evidence.

Magistrates decided otherwise; they put aside a charge of “aggravated pimping as part of an organised gang”, but maintained the lesser charge of “aggravated pimping as part of a group”. He is facing trial along with 12 other defendants.

In France pimping can cover a wide range of crimes including aiding or encouraging prostitution. A trial is expected to take place next year. If convicted, Strauss-Kahn could face up to 10 years in prison and a €1.5m (£860,000) fine.

Can DSK appeal??
No, Dominique Strauss-Kahn can not appeal his removal to the criminal court. The prosecution, he has the ability but he has, at this time, not stated such an intention . [July 27] Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is to face trial on pimping charges, French prosecutors say.

DSK is one of 13 people, including a senior police officer and two businessmen, who were sent for trial yesterday for “aggravated pimping as part of a group” for their alleged part in organising hotel orgies. A more serious accusation of “conspiracy” was dropped.

Under French law “pimping” can mean any action, paid or unpaid, which assists an act of prostitution. It is not suggested that Mr Strauss-Kahn was paid but that he helped to organise the parties with a series of telephone text messages.

A civil party l’association Équipe d’action contre le proxénétisme – Team Association action against pimping – campaigning for the appearance of the former IMF chief. In its brief is to provide judges and which Le Figaro had access, it argues that DSK should be judged not only for “pimping” but for “concealment of pimping.” The reasoning of Mr. David Lepidi, his lawyer (the association is also vice-chaired by senior judge, Yves Charpenel), is as follows. First, Dominique Strauss-Kahn “knew the quality of girls recruited prostitutes for his own benefit” – that has always challenged the person. In addition, “he was the instigator of these evenings having initiated sex (…) the introduction of a system based on the convenience of its immediate environment in order to satisfy his sexual needs.” The proof is mainly based on the many SMS exchanged between DSK and his friend entrepreneur Fabrice Paszkowski where the words “friends”, “gift” or “material” would not have been used to designate libertines, as claimed by the ex-presidential candidate, but prostitutes. For the lawyer, the vocabulary is characteristic of areas of prostitution. DSK would have “encouraged prostitution activity he drew an immediate profit in nature having sex with prostitutes was not paying.”
It would also “provide the means to help the prostitution of others” by organizing parties in an apartment avenue d’Iena in Paris or paying for hotel rooms. Finally, “he generously offered prostitutes relatives,” says the lawyer. In fact, in the folder, one SMS sent to a friend – “X, it will work. I saw her tonight and gave her a gift “- is actually ambiguous. As for the offense of concealment of pimping is formed under Lepidi Me: “By not paying the services of prostitutes, Dominique Strauss-Kahn has the proceeds of the offense of procuring knowing that prostitutes were offered him by pimps. ”
In support of its submission, the lawyer produced a jurisprudence of the Criminal Chamber of the Supreme Court in 1994 that validated the conviction for procuring a prostitute who had lent his van to a “colleague” to enable it “to pursue his amorous activities.”[rough Google translation]
The question is now whether DSK will continue its multiple activities, including international, without the sword of Damocles of a trial in 2014.

DSK will join the Board of the Russian Bank for Regional Development, a financial institution controlled by the Rosneft oil company . He is listed as a representative of DSK‘ s consulting firm “Parnassus”。

Three former employees of Morgan Stanley (MS) left OAO Rosneft after eight months at the firm as Russia’s largest oil company switched its bank’s strategy to focus on corporate and consumer banking.
Rair Simonyan and Elena Titova, Morgan Stanley’s two top bankers in Moscow, and Walid Chammah, a former head of its international unit, departed from the Russian Regional Development Bank, Rosneft said in an e-mailed statement today.

Igor Sechin, an ally of President Vladimir Putin who runs Rosneft, hired the trio and Igor Kan, former head of Russian equities at Citigroup Inc. (C) in Moscow, to help hedge the company’s oil risk. Simonyan, Titova and Chammah joined from Morgan Stanley in November along with 10 of the U.S. bank’s support staff.
Sechin didn’t respond to requests for more information on Rosneft’s banking plans. Chammah declined to comment by phone.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, was appointed to the bank’s supervisory board, a spokeswoman for Rosneft said on the usual condition of anonymity. Strauss-Kahn left the IMF in 2011 after facing allegations including the attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York. He denied the charges, which were later dropped, and he settled the maid’s lawsuit last year.
Morgan Stanley, based in New York, was Russia’s top mergers and acquisitions adviser in 2010 and 2011. It tumbled to seventh position last year after the Rosneft defections, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
The U.S. bank advised Rosneft on its $10.4 billion initial public offering in 2006, Russia’s largest. It was one of the first U.S. financial firms to enter Russia after the Soviet Union collapsed, opening an office in Moscow in 1994.

MOSCOW, May 31 (UPI) — Clients of a bank owned by Russia’s largest oil company are under investigation for possible laundering of almost $1 billion, interior ministry officials say.

The money was sent from the All-Russian Regional Development Bank in three multimillion-dollar transfers to Belarus in 2011 and 2012.

The transfers allegedly paid for imported foreign goods.

Approximately 85 percent of the bank, the 78th largest in Russia, is owned by Rosneft, an oil company lead by Igor Sechin, a government official when Vladimir Putin was prime minister.

In announcing the investigation, an Interior Ministry spokesman said the criminal case is “not against the bank or its employees but in relation to unnamed clients of the bank.”

No arrests have been made and police say they have no official suspects.

A bank source said Rosneft has no connection to the alleged money laundering, ITAR-Tass reported.

The bank has 20,000 clients, the source said.

Belarusian imports and exports are hard for Russian banks to track because of the country’s membership in a customs union with Russia.

Fabrice and friend

The thinking of the Lille prosecution in moving to dismiss charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahnis now available in reports, here in rough Google translation. It appears to turn on a reading of the text messages exchanged with Fabrice Paszkowski , the business manager of Pas-de-Calais.
The offense of procuring also means’ aid, assistance or protection of the Prostitution of Others (…) or having been the instigator or aiding in the organization of a prostitution ring. ” By sending SMS [“Short Message Service” –text] to his friend entrepreneur Fabrice Paszkowski to ask for the “material” or provide evenings around the world with “small”, DSK was considered by the judges as the instigator of the parties and the primary beneficiary. This is not the opinion of the prosecutor. According to him, ” the organization of the network requires a more sophisticated use of SMS communication system . ” The term “material” ? It may include, according to prosecutors, libertine as prostitutes.

According to the prosecutor, it is clear that DSK, then head of the IMF, was courted. But ” it probably took advantage of his position, his reputation, if the men around him trying to get back personal advantage, its expected for the presidency of the Republic accession, this does not make it a pimp . ” His “friends” who always defended him saying hiding the professional nature of the parties, they should be referred to the court.

SMS messages were leaked in 2011 The Lille judges, who retain their records, investigate indeed now on SMS exchanges between DSK and Fabrice Paszkowski , the business manager of the Pas-de-Calais indicted for pimping and misuse of corporate assets.The individual is suspected of having organized thin parts to Paris and Washington have paid part of the services with the business.
The newspaper Liberation announced Thursday a series of messages exchanged between the two men, from the beginning of summer 2009. It is a question every time evenings with young women. “I’m taking a small boxes to Vienna (Austria) Thursday, May 14 It tells you to come up with a lady? “And DSK wrote in June 2009. A few days later, he re Lille interlocutor to ask him if he thought “the book suite with swimming pool.” A few weeks later, on July 4, it comes to an evening in Spain. “Do you (can you) to discover a beautiful naughty club in Madrid with me (and equipment)?” DSK proposes to his accomplice.
Then it comes to be found in Belgium, in late July 2009. “OK.Well received. In Ghent, you must tell me quickly what it is.This is a box or a private party? “. Finally, on July 30, 2010, DSK wrote: “At 2 o’clock in the morning, we took a bottle of champagne over. I’ll avoirdes huge debts. ”
“Perfect for Mosco, I’ll tell you Monday”
In May 2011, just before the Diallo case, DSK wrote a new message revealed by our colleagues in the point : “You come together in Washington?” and insists “I know her?”.

The judge in charge of the case now has one month to decide whether to follow the prosecutor’s advice or to insist on Strauss-Kahn standing trial.

In France, it is not unusual for judges to ignore prosecutors’ recommendations but Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers voiced confidence their client would be cleared.

“I’m happy the prosecutor shares our view that there is no admissible evidence of any crime or offence having been committed,” lawyer Henri Leclerc said

French prosecutors are seeking to have charges dropped against former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn in a case involving a hotel prostitution ring.

Charges against Mr Strauss-Kahn and another man “were not sufficient”, the prosecutors said in a statement.

Mr Strauss-Kahn had faced charges of “aggravated pimping”.

He has admitted attending sex parties in northern France, but says he did not know that some of the women present were paid prostitutes.

The investigating judge in the case will now decide whether or not to drop the prosecution.

Myriam L’Aouffir and Dominique Strauss-appeared on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Jim Jarmusch’s vampire tale “Only Lovers Left Alive”. The story takes place in two evocative settings: Tangier, where Eve (Swinton) wanders the ancient streets in slow motion, wearing beige silk that swings with her long vampirish hair, and Detroit, where her life-long lover Adam (Hiddleston), a musician, hangs out listening to vinyl records and composing on his many stringed instruments, while awaiting his blood supplies. We also have a third character in Tangier, a cultivated old man named Marlowe (John Hurt), who perhaps is actually Shakespeare.

Vincent Maraval, the co-head of Wild Bunch, which is distributing the film Welcome to New York in Cannes: “There’s a dozen lawyers working on the project. Every scene shot is validated by lawyers, even the improvised ones – everything is checked. There is also an error and omission insurance so that everyone we sell the film to is insured against possible legal action.”

The characters in the film are given fictional names. He said the film was a “Shakespearian” look at a fall from grace, the running theme in all of Ferrara’s work.

Maraval added: “He couldn’t care less about Dominique Strauss-Khan or French politics. What he’s interested in is what it means to be publicly disgraced for an addiction, in this case a sexual one, and what the implications are for a couple who’ve been living in denial. When the issue is out in the open does it bring them together or tear them apart?”

The magazines named in the suit are VSD and Closer, which had published photographs of Mr Strauss-Kahn and Myriam L’Aouffir embracing and other shots of the pair on vacation.
Mr Strauss-Kahn’s lawyer said he was seeking 80,000 euros (£65,000) in damages from VSD, the first magazine to publish the photographs, and 50,000 euros from Closer.
Mr Strauss-Kahn’s lawyer Richard Malka said it was clear the photographs were not in the general interest, adding sarcastically: “All this is not being done to sell copies, it’s just to inform us.”
The VSD photographs showed them on holiday in Corsica and claimed that with his new girlfriend, “DSK has become a gentleman again”.
L’Aouffir’s lawyer Laurent Jourdan said she was seeking 100,000 euros from each publication

Unlike the United States, French law (article 9) says “each person has the right to the respect of their private life” even when they are public figures or public officials. Even though Article 9 does not specifically mention a right over one’s image, the French courts have interpreted it as giving individuals a droit à l’image. What is protected is not the image itself, but a person’s right not be photographed without her consent. Article 9 provides protection even if the person is famous.
Paris lawyer Christophe Bigot argues that “all the events of a private life made public by a political figure should in principle become events about which investigation and news are legitimate.” In Ressiot and Others v. France, the ECHR held unanimously in June 2012 that the French Government had not proven that a fair balance had been struck between the different interests at stake.

Query: does the filing of the lawsuit not further display DSK’s separation from Anne Sinclair? Was the public display of affection not an answer to the interviews Anne Sinclair has given lately? Is it a warning to the producers of the film now being made [see below]? Or, was the suit filed to stop rumours

[August 30]The US director Abel Ferrara — whose work includes steamy films such as “Bad Lieutenant” — is due this year to film a movie about the scandal with Gerard Depardieu in the starring role and Isabelle Adjani as Strauss-Kahn’s wife.: This will be the story of a couple caught in the storm. Even if we do not bear the names of the persons in question, who is fooled? It should be exciting because there is a director who is not French commands and it will go where it hurts. With him, there is no risk of political correctness. The idea is that Gerard Depardieu will not his hair white, and I’m not going to take 10 pounds heavier. No! ” It is not surprising that Abel Ferrara, famous for his sulfurous cinema, his attraction to the shallows, vice and the darkness of the human soul, was interested in such a story. Shooting is about to begin in New York, Washington and Paris.. Dsk, a one-time presidential hopeful and head of the International Monetary Fund, has been a political pariah in France since his arrest in New York last year over the alleged attempted rape of an immigrant hotel worker, Nafissatou Diallo.

French prosecutors have charged organised fraud, misuse of corporate assets and breach of trust against Paris-listed Leyne Strauss-Kahn and Partners (LSK)
Jean-Francois Ott, former chief of real estate firm Orco, launched the initial complaint, saying he was given false information about LSK and lost 500,000 euros ($560,000) that he invested in July 2014.
Strauss-Kahn has blamed the company’s mismanagement on his business partner, Thierry Leyne, who committed suicide in October 2014.
The company was declared bankrupt a few weeks later.
Strauss-Kahn quit the firm just days before Leyne’s death and accused his former associate of “excessive borrowing”.
The investigators will seek to determine whether he had a direct role in managing the company’s funds, which he denies.
Critics say he must have known about LSK’s financial difficulties, noting that the firm stopped making payments in May 2014.
But Strauss-Kahn said in a letter to the Luxembourg judiciary in November 2014, seen by AFP, that board meetings did not reveal any serious difficulties in the finances, and daily operations were left to Leyne.

His comments:
It is clear that AK Asset Management had cash-flow problems and had spread payments. This is the reason why the Bâloise reacted.
What happens to the 20% that you held in LSK?
I had more than 15% since an increase in capital which had diluted my participation. I am in the same situation as all other shareholders.
How much have you lost in this case?
I think first to the investors and employees. Regarding me, I probably lost my investment and have never received any remuneration. For me, it is a lot of money.
Under what circumstances did you met Thierry Leyne?
I knew him for a short time, he was introduced to me by a very long time friend who became his companion.
What is the reason for his suicide according to you?
Honestly it’s hard to say. There are obviously some personal reasons which probably I do not know. Nevertheless, everyone knows that he was deeply troubled by the disappearance of his wife. I think also that he had contracted a series of excessive borrowings. -Parisien – Aujourd’hui en France

Criminal Court, including agreement that Mr. Strauss-Kahn will be confined to home detention at an address in Manhattan 24 hours per day, with electronic monitoring. We respectfully submit that these additional bail conditions eliminate any concern that Mr. Strauss-Kahn would or could leave this Court’s jurisdiction. No previous application has been made to this Court for the relief requested herein. 7. “The policy of our law favors bail because of the presumption that the prisoner is

innocent.” People ex rei. Lobell v. McDonnell, 71 N.E.2d 423, 296 N.Y. 109, 111 (1947); see
People v. Keeper o/City Prison, 49 N.E.2d 498,501,290 N.Y. 393,298 (1943) (“Denial of bail

is no light matter, and needs to be buttressed by a real showing ofreasons therefore.”); People v.
Mohammed, 653 N.Y.S.2d 492, 496 (Sup. Ct. Kings Co. 1996) (“[P]ublic policy favors release

pending a determination of guilt or innocence.”); People v. Bach, 306 N.Y.S.2d 365, 368 (Co. Ct. Dutchess Co. 1970) (“The right to bail is one of our most cherished rights, and the policy of our law from time memorial has always favored it.”); cf People ex reI. Klein v. Krueger, 255 N.E.2d 552, 554-55, 25 N.Y.2d 497, 499-501 (1969) (recognizing that denial of bail presents issues of constitutional dimension).

Consideration of the factors set forth in N.Y. Crim. Proc. Law ? 510.30(2)

strongly supports an Order of release on bail pending disposition of the felony complaint herein.
See People ex reI. Ryan v. Infante, 108 A.D.2d 987, 988, 485 N.Y.S.2d 852, 853 (3rd Dept.

1985) (bail determination “must be upon a rational basis delineated by the criteria listed under CPL 510.30.”); People v. Mohammed, 653 N.Y.S.2d 492,497 (Sup. Ct. Kings Co. 1996) (“The general principle is that the only matter of legitimate concern is whether any bail or the amount fixed is necessary to ensure a principal’s future appearances in court.”) (citing Matter ofSardino v. State Comm In on Judicial Conduct, 448 N.E.2d 83, 58 N.Y.2d 286, 289 (1983)); id (“New York has consistently rejected preventative detention as a bail policy consideration.”); People ex
rei. Bauer v. McGreevy, 555 N.Y.S.2d 581, 583 (Sup. Ct. Rensselaer Co. 1990) (“A court cannot

deny bail solely for the reason that it wishes to protect the community from any possible future criminal conduct of the defendant.”); People ex rei. Bryce v. Infante, 144 A.D.2d 898, 899, 535 N.Y.S.2d 215,216 (3rd Dept. 1988) (holding that “probability of conviction and the severity of sentence” did not justify denial of bail when weighed against “petitioner’s reputation, employment and financial resources, lack of prior criminal record and previous record of responding to court appearances”); People ex rei. Benton v. Warden, 118 A.D.2d 443, 445, 499 N.Y.S.2d 738 (1st Dept. 1986) (holding improper for trial court to increase bail “exclusively on its conviction that petitioner would be found guilty of serious crimes entailing a lengthy term of imprisonment”).
