BBC News - Strauss-Kahn questioned in prostitution ring inquiryFormer 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. He insists he did not know that the women were prostitutes. "I challenge you to distinguish a naked prostitute from any other naked woman," his lawyer Henri Leclerc has told French television.
Mr Strauss-Kahn resigned as head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in May 2011 after he was charged in New York with the attempted rape of a hotel maid. The case was later dropped.
In this separate inquiry, French police have already arrested eight men on suspicion of organizing a prostitution ring and misusing corporate funds to pay for sex in a scandal known as the "Carlton affair" because of a Lille hotel where clients were allegedly supplied with call-girls. Three of the suspects were said to have been close to Mr Strauss-Kahn, who is said to have taken part in sex parties in Paris and Washington in late 2010 and early 2011.
Looks like France is is getting ready to address this guy's behavior. This is the same man US courts released after a NYC maid accused him of rape. Once again, France is doing the right thing and the US isn't. This is getting to be a pattern.
