Ex-IMF Boss, exonerated from pimping charges
A French court has acquitted Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief, of aggravated pimping charges.
The 66-year-old nodded his head in court in Lille on Friday in acknowledgement of the verdict which found him not guilty of procuring prostitutes to take part in sex parties in Paris, Brussels and Washington.
According to Al Jazeera’s , said the outcome was in line with what most observers had expected.
“The prosecution had a hard time proving that [Strauss-Kahn] organised these sex parties,” he said.
Only one, a hotel manager, was convicted in the pimping case
