Strauss-Kahn wants to be questioned in new probe

Dominique Strauss-Kahn wants to debunk claims he was linked to a suspected hotel prostitution ring.



Paris: A lawyer for Dominique Strauss-Kahn says the former IMF chief wants to be questioned by police so that he can debunk claims he was linked to a suspected hotel prostitution ring.

Lawyer Frederique Beaulieu says Strauss-Kahn "is asking to be questioned to put an end to these insinuations and extrapolations”.

The lawyer said on Monday that Strauss-Kahn expressed his wishes in a statement but has not yet been contacted by police.

Prosecutors in the northern city of Lille are investigating a suspected prostitution ring in France and neighbouring Belgium. The head of Lille`s luxury Hotel Carlton was among those detained.

The weekly Journal du Dimanche said Strauss-Kahn`s name surfaced in the investigation as a possible client.
