This Tuesday former director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn, is being interrogated by the judicial police of Lille, in the north of France regarding a case of solicitation. So far eight people are involved, the District office has temporarily detained Strauss-Kahn. The justice department could study his declaration before reaching the verdict.
Justice officials suspect that the leaders of this investigation held private parties in different cities, in which Strauss-Kahn could have participated. Politicians such as the commissioner Jean-Christophe Lagarde along with the businessman David Roquet and Fabrice Paszkowski, owner a medical company are being indicted by solicitation charges. It is believed that the businessman and politicians could have made travel arrangements for such parties with money from their offices.
According to the book of the journalist Michel Taubmann, author of DSK: anti-research, Strauss-Kahn admits have participated in libertine parties. However he ignored that the women were prostitutes.
