Strauss-Kahn back in France after New York sex scandal
Paris: Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his wife Anne Sinclair arrived on an Air France flight from New York at Paris Roissy` airport early on Sunday.
The couple, whose plane landed at 7.05 am (0505 GMT), passed rapidly through the terminal building and were immediately whisked away in a waiting black Peugot.
Surrounded by a large number of police, they were smiling but made no statement to journalists waiting for their arrival.
The pair had boarded the flight at John F Kennedy International airport on last evening, less than two weeks after sensational sexual assault charges against him were dropped in New York.
Strauss-Kahn, 62, resigned as the International Monetary Fund`s Managing Director in May, after he was arrested at Kennedy airport and charged with the sexual assault and attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York.
Last week, he walked free, when a judge dismissed charges against him. Prosecutors said, they could not pursue the case because the accuser`s lies had made it impossible to prove her accusations beyond a reasonable doubt.
The respected French economist and Former Finance Minister had been expected to be President Nicolas Sarkozy`s main challenger in 2012 elections before the scandal broke in May, but the saga has left his political career in tatters.
