Strauss-Kahn calls writer rape claims `imaginary`
Paris: Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, has dismissed a French writer`s claims that he tried to rape her during a 2003 interview as "imaginary" and insisted there was "no act of aggression, no violence”.
Writer Tristane Banon has charged Strauss-Kahn tussled on the floor during an interview in an empty apartment, with the politician trying to open her jeans and bra and putting his fingers in her mouth and underwear.
Because a police investigation into the claims is ongoing, Strauss-Kahn said he would not say anything more about the matter.
He was speaking on Sunday in his first television interview since his May arrest over separate accusations by a New York hotel maid that he sexually assaulted her.
