Strauss-Kahn spoke, on March 8 at Cambridge University about his time at the IMF and the financial problems facing Europe. When asked about the sexual charges against him, he said he was not guilty of anything.
President Katie Lam, 20, who is studying classics at Cambridge, said the union was not deliberately courting controversy.
She said officials invited speakers they thought ‘interesting’ and did not make ‘moral or political judgments’, adding that the union’s invitation was first made ‘a few years ago’.
