Dominque Strauss Kahn to face trial for pimping - Telegraph

French former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will face trial on pimping charges along with 12 others in connection with an alleged prostitution ring at a Lille hotel, the local prosecutors' office said on Friday.

Prosecutors had in June called for the charges of "aggravated pimping as part of an organised gang" against Strauss-Kahn to be dropped, but investigating magistrates have decided he should face trial. The charges carry a sentence of up to 10 years.

The 64-year-old former presidential hopeful has admitted attending sex parties there, or what his lawyer called "libertine soirees", but says he did not know that some of the women were paid prostitutes.
And continuing merrily on....

...in 2011 he was accused by a New York chambermaid of attempted rape. He maintained that the sexual act that took place was consensual, but was sued by his accuser, Nafissatou Diallo. The two sides reached an undisclosed financial settlement late last year, reported to be about £950,000.

Last October, a French prosecutor dropped a criminal investigation connecting Mr Strauss-Kahn to a possible gang rape in Washington DC. A Belgian woman withdrew her allegations, and said she would not press charges, despite initially insisting that he had attacked her.

Mr Strauss-Kahn faced further allegations two years ago when Tristane Banon, a young Paris writer, said he had tried to rape her in 2003. But prosecutors said the case could not be pursued because of a statute of limitations.
And I thought our politicians were bad...

Don't the French media have the kind of total ban on blowing the gaff of the misdemeanours of the great and 'good' that our parliamentarians are trying to get through on the back of Leveson?

See, thats what we need. Our politicians just do a bit of fraud or sell a bit of influence to some committee. When you look at Italy ( bunga bunga ), and now France, they know how to spice up politics....

The IMF appears (alleged of course), to be as corrupt as FIFA (alleged of course). All about 'pimping', fornicating, brown envelopes stuffed with cash, bonking Ladies who Do..... Hmm, I must be in the wrong career.....
