PARIS — Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will have to defend himself in a French court on charges of aggravated pimping despite recommendations by prosecutors that the charges be dropped.
Judges investigating the case in the northern city of Lille decided on Friday to go ahead with charges of aggravated pimping in a group.
