Former IMF chief to face trial on pimping charges

PanARMENIAN.Net - Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is to face trial on pimping charges, French prosecutors say, according to BBC News.

Investigating magistrates have decided he should be tried in connection with an alleged prostitution ring at a hotel in Lille.

The former presidential hopeful has admitted attending sex parties there, but says he did not know that some of the women were paid prostitutes.

The case is the last of the sex-related allegations faced by Strauss-Kahn.
