Strauss-Kahn Faces Rape Charges After a Rough Sex Party at Washington Hotel

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn may face new rape allegations. Belgian prostitute who was flown to Washington in December 2011 for a sex party with Mr Strauss-Kahn and friends has told Belgian investigators that the 63-year-old French politician used force while trying to have anal sex with her. Three other men are alleged to have been present in a Washington hotel room, including a senior French police officer.
Three French magistrates are already investigating allegations that Mr Strauss-Kahn was involved in “aggravated pimping” – organising sex parties with prostitutes in three countries. The Lille public prosecutor’s office said yesterday they had sought formal permission to extend their inquiries to cover “gang rape”.

dskAlmost a year ago, Mr Strauss-Kahn was arrested in New York and accused of raping a hotel chambermaid, Nafissatou Diallo. Criminal proceedings were later dropped but he still faces a civil action by Ms Diallo.

Last month, French investigating magistrates placed Mr Strauss-Kahn under formal investigation – a step short of a charge – for “aggravated pimping”. He is alleged to have played a leading role in organising orgies in hotels in Belgium, France and the US in 2009-11 at which prostitutes were present.

He admits being present at the parties but told investigators he had no idea the young women were prostitutes. Marie-Anne S, 25 at the time, told Belgian police helping the investigation that Mr Strauss-Kahn used force while trying to have anal sex with her in a Washington hotel room in December 2011.
She said: “He held my hands. He pulled my hair. He hurt me.” She added that she had made no formal complaint at the time because she had been paid to fly over to the US to have sex with Mr Strauss-Kahn and his friends.

French prosecutors will decide   after the presidential election  whether a formal investigation of Mr Strauss-Khan in Lille for alleged “pimping” should be extended to include allegations of “gang rape.”
The three magistrates charged with investigating the pimping affair – based in Lille, where the inquiry began – believe they have enough evidence to justify expanding their inquiry to rape.
