Strauss-Kahn to Face French Accuser in Attempted Rape Probe

Dominique Strauss-Kahn will be questioned by police alongside the French writer who has accused him of attempted rape, the Paris prosecutors’ office said today.

Police interviewed the former International Monetary Fund chief Strauss-Kahn 11 days ago about Tristane Banon’s allegations. Their 2003 encounter “didn’t involve any aggression, any violence,” Strauss-Kahn said in a television interview, calling her accusations “imaginary.”
