Strauss-Kahn Shifts Focus From Sex Trial to Hedge-Fund Probe

Updated on

Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was acquitted in France on pimping charges this month, but his legal headaches may not be over.

While Strauss-Kahn will try to put the Lille trial with its days of embarrassing testimony behind him, he and his lawyers must shift their focus to Luxembourg and the failure of a hedge fund that bore Strauss-Kahn’s name. The state prosecutor there is reviewing complaints stemming from the collapse last November of Leyne Strauss-Kahn & Partners following the suicide of Thierry Leyne, who had co-founded the investment firm with Strauss-Kahn months earlier.
