Dominique Strauss-Kahn Cleared in Pimping Case

A French court on Friday acquitted former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of charges that he instigated sex parties with prostitutes.

The decision fits with a view expressed in February by the state prosecutor, who called for the 66 year-old to be acquitted because of a lack of proof.

It comes four years after separate sex assault accusations by a New York hotel maid ended Strauss-Kahn’s ambitions to become president of France.
