Slate France media contacted the New York State Attorney General's Office to confirm the victim's name as Diallo, but a spokesperson from the state attorney's office would not confirm or deny it was the victim, according to Slate.
Kahn resigned as chief of the IMF shortly after he was arrested on May 14 aboard an Air France flight minutes before lift off, which led police to escorted him out in handcuffs.
Diallo identified Kahn at a Manhattan police lineup and authorities confirmed DNA connecting Kahn to the assault was recovered. Kahn has denied any wrong doing.

The criminal complaint states, Diallo went to clean a room that she thought was vacant. Kahn came into a room with no clothes. She ran out of the room after Kahn attacked her. He chased her into the hallway and force her back into the room. Kahn then forced Diallo to perform oral sex on him, according to police.
