Paris police hear Strauss-Kahn in French rape case
Paris: Police looking into accusations Dominique Strauss-Kahn tried to rape a writer during an interview have questioned the former head of the International Monetary Fund.
A judicial official says Strauss-Kahn was heard by members of a Paris-based police brigade on Monday morning. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with French judicial regulations.
French writer Tristane Banon alleges Strauss-Kahn attacked her in an empty apartment when she went to interview him in 2003.
Strauss-Kahn calls the claim "imaginary”. He returned to his native France earlier this month after New York prosecutors dropped rape and other charges against him in a separate case brought by a New York hotel maid.
