Dominique Strauss-Kahn to face judge
Friday 23 September 2011
The Paris prosecutor's office says Dominique Strauss-Kahn and the woman who accuses him of trying to rape her have been ordered to appear before a judge to tell their version of the events.
Writer Tristane Banon says the former head of the International Monetary Fund attacked her while she was interviewing him in 2003. Strauss-Kahn has called her story imaginary and has sued her for slander.
Strauss-Kahn was considered a top contender for France's forthcoming presidential elections before his May arrest in New York on charges he tried to rape a hotel maid. Prosecutors dropped those charges.
The prosecutor announced the meeting today but gave no date for it. Such meetings are sometimes ordered as part of an investigation into charges.
