French prosecutors open probe against Strauss-Kahn over gang rape
Paris, May 21 (Xinhua-ANI): French prosecutors on Monday opened a preliminary investigation into alleged gang rape involving the ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, local media reported.
Citing prosecutors in Lille, the report said the probe will investigate on an incident "that could be described as gang rape" dated late 2010 in Washington, the United States, where Strauss-Kahn could have forced sex with a prostitute with the help of his friends.
Strauss-Kahn risks 20 years in jail if he was found guilty in the case, the report added.
The scandal-hit former French finance minister had already been questioned over his alleged involvement in an illegal prostitution ring which supplied women to clients in the city's luxury Carlton hotel and for abuse of corporate funds.
Being on fire of a judicial investigation over charges of sexual assault and attempted rape on a hotel maid in New York last year, Strauss-Kahn was forced to quit the International Monetary Fund and to keep a distance to France's political life. (Xinhua-ANI)
