No respite for ex IMF Chief Dominique Strauss Kahn

Sex scandal trumps IMF failures

Reports from France indicate that 62-year old Dominique Strauss Kahn, the IMF chief was a part of a prostitution racket – it is a fall from grace. It is difficult to imagine him as a pimp!!

He had been involved in an affair with Nafissatou Diallo, a maid of the Sofitel New York hotel last year in May and one would have expected the matter to have ended by now.

But with new evidence turning up, the controversy has ensured that, contrary to expectations, DSK is still news material.

It seems he is facing preliminary charges of being involved in procuring prostitutes for hotel orgies and was a part of an ‘organized gang’. The gang was active in Lille, Paris and Washington DC.

If tried and convicted, Dominique Strauss Kahn might have to go to prison for up to 20-years – he is currently out on a bond of 100,000 Euros ($135,000).
