French disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn leaves free, in a car, from a French police station - AFP
Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn walked free from a French police station on Wednesday after two days of questioning about a series of sex parties.
Prosecutors said that Strauss-Kahn, once considered the front-runner to become the next president of France, would be summoned to appear before magistrates in March.
His lawyer Frederique Baulieu said his client was ‘very satisfied to have been heard’ by investigators who questioned him on charges of ‘abetting aggravated pimping by an organised gang’ and ‘misuse of company funds’.
A source close to the inquiry said earlier he would be issued with a summons to appear before the investigating magistrates either to be interviewed under caution as a witness or to face charges linked to prostitution and corruption.
