This translated piece by Inmala Fide is the first part of the Slate France article “Qui est vraiment Nafissatou Diallo?“, originally written by Sabine Cessou.
Nafissatou Diallo is under police protection.

The daughter of a merchant form the Peule tribe (40% of the population in a country of 10.3 million), she is from the Labé region in Guinea, and followed her husband, a Guinea merchant, to the USA in 1998. There, she divorced him and has been raising her 15 year old daughter alone in the Bronx. She has some family in Harlem, including her sister, who is married to a Guinean business man working in the import-export trade.

Nafissatou Diallo holds a green card, and has been working as a maid in the Sofitel Hotel for three years. She has a reputation as a serious girl.

“She is as hard a worker as her sister,” said a cousin of hers on the phone. Diallo’s family has not been able to see her yet. Like everyone else, they read the papers, but they hope the sexual assault is “less severe” that what is reported.

Mamadou Chérif Diallo, from the victim’s family, and a 35 year old Guinean who is working for a New York City agency, who is tasked with representing the family, said this:

She’s a good Muslim. She is really pretty, as are a lot of Peule women, but in our culture, we do not accept this kind of behavior. Seriously, Dominique Strauss-Kahn attacked the wrong person. It’s a scandal! It’s really sad, this accident!

Under police protection

The family explained that Nafissatou Diallo is in hiding with NYPD protection to protect her from the media. She presently has a lawyer. The attorney general’s office in Manhattan, contacted by SlateAfrique, refused to confirm the identity of Nafissatou Diallo, a common measure to protect sexual assault victims in the US.

  1. I thought for sure that the Moose-limbs would be rioting by now. But they hate women and love socialist dictators. I guess they’re a little confused.

  2. This is thug Chicago mob politics to intimidate bankers from downgrading our credit rating. The maid is one of Obama’s muslim spies with ties to Iranian intelligence agency. No coincidence this whole shabazz goes down just as the US reaches its debt ceiling limit. Some very implausible aspects to this case . A cold civil war is breaking out within the inner sanctum of the New World Order cult. The decisions to take out Mubarak, Khadaffi, to kill Osama Bin Laden, to humiliate the IMF leader… All part of the closing act in the fall of the American Empire .

  3. We’re on the same page on this thing ………

  4. Stop our funding of the IMF now!

  5. Last week , the internationey monetary fund urged the United States to ” urgently ” address

    its its problems ,saying the country stands out as the only large advanced economy with fiscal

    deficit that will increase in 2011 from 2010, despite the ongoing economic recovery.

    something smells about this whole deal…….just saying

  6. The maid is not under police supervision ” for her personal protection” . She is under lock and key to control the Government scripted narrative,,,, and keep her away from media interviews that risk blowing off the fake cover of this operation. This is one of those ” special measures ” Timmy Geithner said he had up his sleeve to avert default. …along with raiding federal pension funds.

  7. I hope she is not from an honor killing faction of Islam.

  8. “She’s a good muslim.” Now there’s an oxymoron.

  9. Dominique Strauss-Kahn may have more to worry about than a possible prison sentence.

    The IMF chief’s alleged sex-assault victim lives in a Bronx apartment rented exclusively for adults with HIV or AIDS, The Post has learned.

    The hotel maid, a West African immigrant, has occupied the fourth-floor High Bridge pad with her 15-year-old daughter since January — and before that, lived in another Bronx apartment set aside by Harlem Community AIDS United strictly for adults with the virus and their families.

  10. Donh, I think you have completely lost touch without reality. Why must everything be a government conspiracy?? *sigh*, pls be smart and get out of ur ‘I know it all” state.

    Joanne: There r good muslims in this world. U can be so naïve and say all muslims are bad. I am muslim but would never hurt a fly. So pls educate urself and stop spreading hate ( that’s what you are doing if you say all muslims are bad)

    Neo: I am guessing you are white. Black people in the world we live in are suffering. She doesn’t care where she lives as long as she can rest her head and her daughter’s head

  11. She looks like a nice girl to me.

    As for Strauss-Kahn, yes he’s vile, but this is quite clearly a setup. There’s tons of evidence suggesting that’s the case – especially because one of his political adverseries made a tweet on the alleged rape BEFORE it was said to happen!

  12. I hope she is not from an honor killing faction of Islam.

    Why? Her family’s honor is as important as any other family’s. Let her family avenge themselves on the froggie.

  13. politics guru,
    What did Neo say that was about race? His post was about her AIDS status which is pertinent to this rape drama. ‘I’m guessing you’re white”? Who’s the racist here? You are.

  14. Dominique Strauss-Kahn a habitual womanizer, attacked the wrong woman. The African community will pursue this issue to the end. We will not be shaken by the pressure of the likes of DSK. Please respect the integrity of the victim, whose Name and Identity according to U.S. law should be protected.

    May Justice Prevail…

  15. It was WRONG to post her name and invade her privacy. Your newspaper can be held liable.

  16. Sorry, I believe the maid.

    This nonsense about a possible set-up was thrown out there because Rape Man’s cronies KNEW his lecherous ways were about to go public since he was planning to run against Sarkozy. They knew the bimbo eruptions were coming. He just got caught with his pants down, literally, this time in a country of laws not a country where les intellectuelles get a free pass for whatevery they do.


    go juss wimmen??????

    Fula people or Fulani (Fula: Fulɓe; French: Peul; Hausa: Fulan; Wolof: Pël; Bambara: Fulaw) are an ethnic group of people spread over many countries, predominantly in West Africa, but found also in Central Africa and Sudanese North Africa. The countries in Africa where they are present include Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, The Gambia, Mali, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, Chad, Togo, the Central African Republic, Ghana, Liberia, and as far as Sudan in the east. Fula people form a minority in every country they inhabit, but in Guinea they represent a plurality of the population (40%).[1] Total population approximates 27,000,000.

  18. Not much exposure that kahn was an askanazi Jew, set to replace the Jewish leader of france, sarkozky.

  19. The xenophobes here should travel, or get an education. Of course, they won’t know what a xenophobe is.

  20. Hey cooligerules and Donh or whatever the f**k your foolish CODENAMES are thought American IQs are better than im seeing.You dumb f**ks are already painting this the way u want…? if u were born in an arab country u’d be worse than the terrorists we see today.Ur IQs are same DUMB!!!! a man has raped in a country with a constitution of freedom and all u idiots can do is paint racism…Go back to school fools,,
