Strauss-Kahn handed preliminary charges in French prostitution ring probe

Paris, Tue, 27 Mar 2012 ANI

Paris, Mar 27 (ANI): Shamed former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been handed preliminary charges alleging he was involved in a hotel prostitution ring in France.

The French politician's lawyer, Richard Malka, said that Strauss-Kahn left was accused of procuring prostitutes and involvement in an "organized gang."

Malka said that Strauss-Kahn has denied wrongdoing, and added that it is wrong to prosecute him for "simple libertine activity," Fox News reports.

According to French law, preliminary charges mean authorities have reason to believe a crime was committed, but allow more time for investigation.

Strauss-Kahn resigned from the IMF last year after a New York hotel maid accused him of sexually assaulting. The charges were later dropped.

The maid, an immigrant from Guinea, has insisted she was truthful about the encounter and is pursuing claims against Strauss-Kahn in a civil lawsuit. (ANI)
