Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

French police arrested him a few days ago, for some interrogation, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17110618

Former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been detained for questioning by French police investigating a prostitution ring. Investigators have already questioned a number of prostitutes who have admitted having sex with Mr Strauss-Kahn. The 62-year-old insists he did not know that the women were prostitutes.

I liked his lawyer's remark on French TV, "I challenge you to distinguish a naked prostitute from any other naked woman."

So do normal naked women regularly find their way to S-K's bedroom? The idea is bizarre, "Yes officer, I shagged her, but I didn't realise she was a pro"

You've never been in a Swinger's club, have you? DSK has.
And read Catherine Millet, you'll understand.

Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

This thread needs a new title "No peace for the wicked!"

I quite like the man, but those nasty Frenchies are now the ones after him for his recent peccadiloes.

Do you suppose he might be sharing Ruby with Silvio Berlusconi?

Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

Quote:
He has admitted attending sex parties all over the world but denies knowing the women he had sex with were prostitutes because they "were all naked at the time".
Now police claim evidence links him to "complicity in pimping" and "misuse of corporate assets". A source said bail will not be considered until tomorrow at the earliest....
His unorthodox defence comes amid allegations that his mobile phone records showed he had relationships with at least 10 call girls from France and Belgium, all of whom claim they were paid to have sex with him while he was IMF chief.
However, Strauss-Kahn's lawyer, Henri Leclerc, said his client was "totally unaware" the women were being paid. "At these parties, people were not necessarily dressed, and I defy you to tell the difference between a naked prostitute and any other naked woman," said Mr Leclerc.

Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

From today's papers;
"Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s long-suffering wife has left the former International Monetary Fund chief"

I wonder why now after all that has happened?

Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

Thanks for that! Nothing on Google France yet. Apparently the revelation comes from "Closer", a gossip mag. Goodness knows why she's put up with him for so long. The New York incident was bad enough, but more recently revealed goings-on in a hotel in Lille look even worse. A charge of "gang rape" (probably a poor translation of "viol en réunion", I admit. Where's Faltrad?) is being considered. Thank goodness all this came out before the presidential election got under way.

Anne Sinclair's in charge of Huffington Post France and she's a really good journalist, so the prospects for her new single life look pretty bright. The same cannot be said for her lecherous ex, who is apparently "deeply depressed", poor thing.

Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

Sorry to drag up an old thread but it is one after another.

Today's news is that the current IMF director Christine Lagarde has to appear before a French court about a financial scandal ($400M) in France from last year.

Would be nice to find a senior financial official who has no skeletons in the cupboard although I am sure Christine is entirely innocent

Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

Perhaps she's guilty, perhaps not. AFAIK though that still has to be ruled on.

Re: D. Strauss-Kahn IMF Director accused of sexual assault

Meanwhile the predecessor of Strauss-Kahn
Quote:
The former International Monetary Fund chief Rodrigo Rato has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison for misusing corporate credit cards while in charge of two leading Spanish banks at the height of the country’s financial crisis.

Rato, also a former a Spanish economy minister and deputy prime minister, was found guilty on Thursday of embezzlement, at the end of a five-month trial at Spain’s national court.
and the current IMF director
Quote:
Ihe Cour de Justice de la République, a French court that considers cases against current and former government ministers, found Ms. Lagarde guilty of criminal charges linked to the misuse of public funds when she was France’s finance minister nearly a decade ago. But the court did not impose a fine or a sentence.
