DSK in Court Over Prostitute Ring

    Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn (C) gestures to reporters as he takes his seat at an economic forum in Beijing on December 19, 2011. Strauss-Kahn was making his first public professional speech since the New York scandal in May, in which he was arrested -- and later cleared -- over accusations of sexually assaulting a hotel maid. The forum, attended by more than 45 prominent international economists was to examine prospects for the world economy and the outlook for growth in China, organisers NetEase said via their website.

    Once again, police have some questions about Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s hotel habits. The former head of the International Monetary Fund was taken in for questioning regarding a prostitution ring after several call girls said they had sex with him at hotels in Paris and Washington. Strauss-Kahn says he didn’t know the women were prostitutes. “I challenge you to distinguish a naked prostitute from any other naked woman,” his lawyer Henri Leclerc said. In the same inquiry, French police have arrested eight men on suspicion of misusing corporate funds to pay for sex parties. It is legal to consort with prostitutes in France, but not to use corporate funds to do so.
