Strauss-Kahn cleared to discuss French court case
Paris: A French appeals court has partially lifted a ban that prevented former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn from talking to the media about an investigation of a suspected prostitution ring.
Strauss-Kahn, 63, is one of several public figures accused of being associated with the suspected prostitution ring at a chic hotel in the city of Lyon. Other suspects include prominent city officials and police.
In its ruling on Wednesday, the court in Douai, which is handling the probe, said Strauss-Kahn can publicly discuss the case, but remains banned from contacting witnesses in it.
Strauss-Kahn is under investigation for alleged aggravated pimping, a charge he has denied. He has acknowledged being involved in "libertine" activity at the hotel, but said he was unaware that anyone was being paid for sex.
