Strauss-Kahn Sues French Papers Over Prostitutes Story, AFP Says

Nov. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his wife, Anne Sinclair, filed criminal claims against French newspapers and magazines over their coverage of an investigation into a prostitution ring to which Strauss-Kahn was linked, Agence France-Presse reported.

The two will also file a complaint against Henri Guaino, an adviser to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, over televised comments he made about the prostitution case, AFP reported, citing a statement from the couple’s lawyer Richard Malka.

They had announced plans to sue French publications on Nov. 11, denouncing the “media lynching” of Strauss-Kahn.

A spokeswoman at the French presidential palace declined to comment on the report. Calls to Malka and the couple’s other lawyers on the AFP report weren’t immediately returned.
