The Los Angeles Times is reporting that charges may be dropped against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, who allegedly tried to rape a New York City hotel housekeeper, her lawyer said.

Nafissatou Diallo's lawyer has told reporters that he expects she will be informed Monday that prosecutors are preparing to dismiss all or some of the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund who she says tried to rape her.

Manhattan prosecutors sent a letter to Diallo summoning her to the district attorney's office Monday to discuss what will happen at a court hearing Tuesday, according to the New York Times.

"Why would they need to see her if they were going forward?" lawyer Kenneth Thompson told the Daily News on Saturday.

Prosecutors, who have twice delayed court appearances while they further investigated Diallo's claims, had been expected to reveal Tuesday whether they will pursue charges against Strauss-Kahn.

The decisions made regarding this case will reverberate across the globe. We hope justice will be served.
