Lille (France) (AFP) - The pivotal character in a French prostitution ring that landed former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn in court for "pimping" will be the first to take the stand Tuesday in the trial.
Lille (France) (AFP) - Disgraced ex-IMF boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn, whose presidential hopes were torpedoed by a sex scandal, takes the stand at a French pimping trial Tuesday in a bid to convince judges he was not at the core of a prostitution ring.
Lille (France) (AFP) - The sexual proclivities of ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn come under the spotlight again Monday when he goes on trial in France for "pimping" four years after a sex scandal cost him a shot at the presidency.
The DSK trial has begun in Lille, France, where former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been charged for soliciting prostitutes and joining in orgies in France and the United States. His defense? It wasn't really that bad:
The arrest of the IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn over charges of a sex crime in New York, complicates matters for the troubled Euro-zone in a critical moment. Analysis follows.
The chief of the International Monetary Fund already boarded a plane from New York to Paris when the local police came to arrest him. He is accused of a sexual assault on a maid in the New York Sofitel hotel hours before the scheduled flight.
Three years after being accused of sexual assault, removed from an airplane in NYC, and later having the charges dismissed on an alleged out of court settlement, former IMF chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK) is planning to leverage his status - as an expert on global finance - as well as his thick rolodex to raise a $2bn hedge fund in Asia.
