EMMA ALBERICI, PRESENTER: The former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique
Strauss-Kahn, is being investigated in France over his alleged involvement in a prostitution ring.

The allegations relate to his supposed involvement in hiring prostitutes for sex parties at hotels
in Lille, Paris and Washington.

Mr Strauss-Kahn has admitted he attended some parties, but says he didn't know the women were
prostitutes.

Eight people have already been placed under formal investigation, including a senior police
officer.

The 62-year-old resigned from the IMF last May, after he was accused of trying to rape a maid at a
New York hotel.

Those charges were later dropped.
