DSK Suspected His Phone Was Hacked

A detailed report from The New York Review of Books raises questions—and the specter of political intrigue—in the case of former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Several sources say Strauss-Kahn had been tipped off on the morning of his arrest that his BlackBerry had been hacked and a personal email read aloud in the office of President Sarkozy's party. The supposedly hacked phone was never found, but BlackBerry records indicate its GPS was disabled shortly after Strauss-Kahn left the hotel. The hotel's electronic-key-card records raise further questions. For instance, who was in the neighboring room 2820, which Diallo entered both before and after entering Strauss-Kahn's room? Diallo lied to the grand jury about entering the room, and the hotel refuses to say who was staying there.
