Strauss-Kahn fails to scupper probe into his alleged pimping

THE former IMF chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn (pictured), has failed to free himself of his last remaining accusation of sexual misconduct.

A court in northern France threw out Mr Strauss-Kahn's attempt to end a criminal investigation into his alleged role in organising sex parties with prostitutes in France, Belgium and the US.

The appeal judges decided there was enough evidence to justify an extended investigation of the former French cabinet minister for "conspiracy" and "aggravated pimping".

Mr Strauss-Kahn's lawyers said he would appeal to France's highest court to have the investigation ended. (© Independent News Service)
