French prosecutor calls for former IMF head’s pimping charges to be dropped

A French prosecutor has called for the acquittal of the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, on charges of pimping.

Lille prosecutor Frederic Fevre said neither the investigation nor the evidence heard in court had established that he was guilty.

Strauss-Kahn has always denied knowing that women who took part in orgies with him were prostitutes.

The judge must decide whether he did know or if he organised the parties.
In France being found guilty of pimping carries a jail sentence of up to 10 years and a fine of 1.5 million euros.
