Paris: Lawyers defending Dominique
Strauss-Kahn against allegations he was involved in a French
prostitution ring say he is being unfairly targeted for his
active extramarital sex life and committed no crime.

They are also protesting a judge`s order barring the
former International Monetary Fund chief from talking to the
media pending further investigation.

Strauss-Kahn, a former French presidential hopeful, was
handed preliminary charges yesterday alleging he was involved
in a hotel prostitution ring in France.

Lawyer Henri Leclerc said today that Strauss-Kahn didn`t
know he was having sex with prostitutes, and that he`s certain
the case against Strauss-Kahn will crumble.

A New York court is holding a hearing tomorrow in a civil
case in which a hotel maid accuses Strauss-Kahn of sexual
assault.
