"I am a Victim," Says Wolfowitz's Lover
"I would like to reiterate that I did not wish to leave the bank and I did not, and do not, expect any special considerations," Shaha Riza said in a memo.
"I did not wish to leave the bank," she said. "I have now been victimized for agreeing to an arrangement that I have objected to and that I did not believe from the outset was in my best interest."
Libyan-born Shaha Riza was moved to the state department on secondment when Wolfowitz took the World Bank's top job in 2005, but her salary was still paid by the Bank.
Yet Riza said she would not have reported to him.
"After all, in the eighth year of my bank service, I did not directly or indirectly report to Mr. Wolfensohn," she said, referring to former World Bank president James Wolfensohn.
