Lille prosecutor Frederic Fevre called for the acquittal of the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, on charges of pimping. He said neither the investigation nor the evidence heard in court had established that he was guilty. Lawyers for an association that had filed suit announced February 17 that it was abandoning its pursuit of Strauss-Kahn. Only one association, a group pushing to abolish prostitution called Nid or “nest,” maintained its accusations against Strauss-Kahn and his 13 co-defendants. Chief judge Bernard Lemaire opened the trial by stressing the court would not judge sexual activities among consenting adults. “The court,” he said, “is not the guardian of moral order, but of the law.”

Strauss-Kahn, “didn’t give up” during questioning by judges, repeatedly denying knowledge that the women were prostitutes. Lawyers for the four prostitutes who participated in sex parties organized for Dominique Strauss-Kahn said on February 16 they were giving up their claim of damages, saying it would be too hard to prove the pimping charge against the former IMF head.

The chambermaid and her daughter are doing well she runs Chez Amina, serving up African, American and Spanish food.

Strauss-Kahn took the stand to answer questions from the lead judge. Dominique Strauss-Kahn said that despite the idea given in court papers of “frenetic activity”, the group-sex sessions were organised four times a year, in a period when he was very busy “saving the world from catastrophe” at the time of the sub-prime crisis. At the same time, he said, he had a “complicated relationship” with his wife, Anne Sinclair, a French journalist. Asked whether he never suspected that any of the seven women who came to the “swingers’ parties – often alone- were prostitutes, Mr Strauss-Kahn said “never”.“If I had known that I would not have gone along,” he said, adding: “I thought they were coming for the excitement and the adventure. I never thought they were coming just for me.”

Strauss-Kahn was charged with “aggravated pimping” in the Lille case in 2012, as investigators said he played an organizing role in the ring. While prostitution and paying for sex aren’t illegal in France, procuring prostitutes for others is.
The accusations “contradict all good legal sense,” his defense team said in a December 2012 statement. Strauss-Kahn was “serene” about the trial and was confident the court will clear him.
The trial will run through Feb. 20, and may be extended by a week, though the judges’ verdict will come later, . If convicted, he could face 10 years in jail and a 1.5 million-euro ($1.7 million) fine.

[March 26]

Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been charged alleging with involvement in a French prostitution ring.
Investigating judges questioned Strauss-Kahn for several hours March 26. Strauss-Kahn was accused of procuring prostitutes and involvement in an “organized gang.”
The preliminary charges in Lille—procurement as part of a group of acquaintances based in Lille–meant the magistrates there concluded Strauss-Kahn’s conduct, along with the others, should be investigated further with an eye to putting him on trial. They did not mean he was accused of employing or profiting from the work of prostitutes.

Under French law, prostitution is tolerated but procurement is a crime punishable by up to 20 years of imprisonment, meaning Strauss-Kahn in theory risks going to jail. The magistrates did not pursue the other allegations under investigation, which alleged Strauss-Kahn participated in corruption because his partners in the sex parties put prostitutes’ bills and other charges on their company expense accounts. His lawyer Malka says Strauss-Kahn denies wrongdoing. The lawyer also says it is wrong to prosecute Strauss-Kahn for “simple libertine activity.”
Under French law, preliminary charges mean authorities have reason to believe a crime was committed but allow more time for investigation.
Strauss-Kahn quit the International Monetary Fund after a New York hotel maid said he sexually assaulted her in May. The charges were later dropped. Using prostitutes is not illegal in France. But potential charges hang on whether investigating magistrates are convinced Mr Strauss-Kahn was aware the women he had sex with in restaurants, hotels and swingers’ clubs in Paris and several European capitals were prostitutes paid for using company funds.

Strauss-Kahn is seeking damages of at least $1 million for claims of malicious prosecution, abuse of process, false imprisonment, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
“One year to the day of his brutal sexual assault of Ms. Diallo, this is yet another example that personifies Strauss- Kahn’s misogynistic attitude,” Douglas H. Wigdor, a lawyer for Diallo, said in a statement. “As with his plea for diplomatic immunity, we are entirely confident this latest desperate ploy will be swiftly rejected.”

INFO LE FIGARO – March 26, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was interviewed in Lille for the case of Carlton. Le Figaro reveals the exchange between the former IMF chief and magistrates who, after such hearing, the will charged with “aggravated procuring in an organized gang.”

• A system set up?

The judge first plant the “background”: “In total, fifteen outings, trips, both in Paris, Lille, Belgium, and Washington, have been organized for you by Fabrice Paszkowski (Chief a business of selling medical equipment), David Pug (responsible for a subsidiary of construction group Eiffage) from 2008.Participants were systematically David Roquet, Jean-Christophe Lagarde (Commissioner of Public Safety in Lille), Jacques Mellick son. “The caller does not leave open the breach:” I only ever appeared they were organized for me. ”

– “Paszkowski said Fabrice you were not the instigator, but you were happy (…) because you like sex.”

– “It is right to say that I was not the instigator (…) I was happy as I am usually when friends invite me to do something.”

– “Do not you think having established this system of convenience in your entourage in order to satisfy your sexual needs?”

– “(…) No, I never felt in any form of organization in place and still less that that organization was using prostitution.”

• The “girlfriends” in the SMS

In 2011, the IMF chief uses, according to the survey, some of which six mobile phones, purchased by friends or her driver, remained in their names, which helps to cover their tracks.

At each exchange, Fabrice Paszkowski takes his friend informed of the place, date, time and participants in these meetings. Nothing extraordinary, however, given the busy schedule of an officer who spends his time between America, Europe and Asia and who insists: “It is sometimes difficult to imagine the constraints j ‘was submitted. I could land and take a plane five hours later, or stay in a city only six hours. ”

Among the many messages, one dated February 20, 2011 and sent by Paszkowski, “I have some great new things for my trip to DC! (Washington DC, Ed). I go to Courchevel for testing on Wednesday. “Another of these text messages, this time sent by DSK in June 2009:” Will you (can you) to discover a beautiful box naughty with me in Madrid (and equipment) the July 4? “Then, in January 2010:” You come and go back when? And outside of the delegation of friends there who? “A vocabulary which earned him the remarks while in custody:” If we tell you that in the middle of pimping, “girlfriends” is the term sought by the decency to refer to prostitutes or escort girls, what did you say to that? “DSK” I do not know the middle of prostitutes. ”

In January 2010, according to the exchange of SMS, the former political leader offers a “gift” – a prostitute, according to the suspicions of judges – the former painter and Titouan Lamazou browser. Finally, the judges noted that the network is presumed autodissout the day after the arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn in New York May 14, 2011.

• Prostitutes or libertine?

If judges are so keen to demonstrate that DSK knew they were dealing with professional, this is obviously not to penalize him as a client, the use of commercial sex is not illegal. However, the fact that he knew that young women were prostitutes – he denies – is a prerequisite for attempting to prove that he took an active part in this “network” organizer of fine particles and can therefore be prosecuted for “aggravated procuring in an organized gang.”

Hence this series of questions: “Given the large number of girls, age, behavior, do you maintain that you did not know their quality escort?” – “I counted all that there had six young women. This does not seem a huge number. ”

The main clue that could have alerted DSK is the reward of participating, but Pug and Paszkowski argued that the payment of benefits was always unbeknownst to their friend. As for prostitutes, they are not fully explicit. A conversation between Paszkowski and “Florence” on compensation thereof could she alert him? DSK said he did not witness. The judge tries another bias: “Florence said you were a very active group of sexually and you were very interested in the” newcomers “, unless by the former. What say you? “-” The first part, this is a comment I left him on my business (…) It is true that the interest of libertinism rests in part on the novelty. ”

• Girls’ familiar, enterprising “

New offensive citing “Jade”, a stripper cabaret, which ensured that DSK could not ignore its professional quality. Partly because DSK would have said to the friend who accompanied him: “With Jade, must wear a condom.” And the stripper to drop some acid comments: “I did not go to bed with Dominique Strauss-Kahn for the simple pleasure. First, it is old, he is overweight. ”

“Mounia,” she recounted a meeting at the Hotel Murano, near the Republique in Paris, “Dominique Strauss-Kahn knew very well why I was there as well as others. We were only there to have sex with him and everything was done to make it perfect for him. “The same Mounia adds that” these girls were dressed provocatively, vulgar, they were familiar, and enterprising that in her view, these were prostitutes, girls working in bars. ” Note that reacted DSK: “In this kind of evening libertine, young women can be challenging but it is by no means the characteristic of a form of prostitution.”

Annoyed, the former head of the International Monetary Fund book a lesson in debauchery: “No sex I could have (…) around the group of friends Fabrice Paszkowski not struck me as being priced. You must understand something, libertinage is to have free sex and consensual. We think what we want the moral but they are not priced. ”

• A behavior “contemptuous”?

New Note to former elected Sarcelles: “Four of the participants say is that you knew they were prostitutes for entering your unequivocal about or that you could not ignore this situation given the explicit their quality. “” You seem to feed some considerations with regard to young women brought by Fabrice Paszkowski. They often demeaning terms such as “hardware”, “in your luggage.” You seem to talk to them without immediate sex show them any respect. One participant felt being “pure sexual consumption”, in his words. ”

DSK respond at length: “I have often seen young women dressed like you and me who changed upon arrival in a libertine club to make an outfit more alluring and it was not one of the prostitutes (…). I reject absolutely have any contemptuous behavior vis-à-vis women. It is true that I used in my posts words guard (…) I do not consider women as objects in libertinage (…) There have been no reports brutal, no vision of the degraded wife and no violence. ”

• The “age difference”

The age difference would it have sometimes alert DSK? One of his partners was born in 1984, another in 1985. “Do you think if they (the two women) were not paid, they have agreed to have sex with you these many times given the age difference between you?” DSK retorts: “Madam, many young women with whom I have had a sex trade – the word is not good – a sexual relationship, had the same age difference.”

Another is a former radio operator. Within weeks, DSK sends 73 text messages on his telephone line that appears in the fifth position among the most frequently called numbers (82 calls). More troubling, the employee said that DSK had spoken Fabrice Paszkowski. She described him, say the judges, “as your right arm, a good friend of Lille. He could make her meet people and it could serve him later, but not necessarily for work. ” Answer this time embarrassed, “Paszkowski Fabrice has never been anything in my right arm (…) She wanted to find a change in business communication (…) Fabrice Paszkowski told me he had an event company. ”

• Prostitutes may be under pressure

The approach end of the hearing. The judge tries again: “If you had known that these girls were prostitutes, how would you have reacted?” – “I would not have participated in the evenings for two reasons. One is that precisely the libertine implies consent and mutual pleasure, which is not the case, to my knowledge, of a prostitute. The second is that so I thought I could trust men and women with whom I shared a taste for libertinism, as I would not have trusted prostitutes who may be subject to all kinds pressure. ”

“Accession expected at the Elysee”

“In the process, it emerges (…) that you were the primary beneficiary of these evenings and sometimes exclusive (…), say judges. Your position, your reputation, your ambitions give those who organize these meetings, fund them, a sense of shared secret, a relationship with a man of power. It is released (…) that these men are animated by a shared mindset, get in a return of personal or professional of your expected accession to the presidency of the Republic. ”

The old favorite for president lashes out: “As for the fact that all these people cared about me because of political events, it is they that must be questioned. I remember just as in 2007 I had just been defeated in the primary dryly Socialist Party and that is because of this very evanescent political future that I decided to go do something else with the other side of the Atlantic. The idea that some participants saw more than a touch, a nice trade, is false. What, then, something else has crossed their mind, I do not know. ”

The tribulations of DSK in large hotels stir endlessly.
David Roquet is the head of “Matériaux Enrobés du Nord”, a subsidiary of French construction giant Eiffage. Roquet told the police he had visited Strauss-Kahn in New York in February 2011, accompanied by prostitutes “presented as Eiffage secretaries.” A second visit took place in May 2011.

Jean-Christophe Lagarde was, until his suspension last week, head of urban security for the Nord administrative region that includes the city of Lille. Lagarde also accompanied Roquet and Paszkowski on trips to New York in the company of the “secretaries”.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn in New York

Police chief Jean-Christophe Lagarde organised an orgy for Strauss-Kahn in a Paris hotel, it was alleged today. French judges are aware that Mr Lagarde, a departmental commissioner in France’s national police force, had discussed setting up a protection unit for Mr Strauss-Kahn if he became President of France.

But a prostitute has also told them that the pair organised an orgy in the spring of 2010 ‘in a duplex suite of a luxury central Paris hotel’,
Mr Lagarde also accompanied prostitutes to New York, where Mr Straus Kahn was working as IMF chief.

According to the JDD, the illegal prostitute racket not only provided girls for luxury French hotels like the Carlton in Lille, but also ones in the U.S.

They are thought to have been selected for Mr Strauss-Kahn by Dominique Alderweireld, a 62-year-old ‘pimp’ nicknamed ‘Dodo’, who made a number of trips to see Mr Strauss-Kahn in New York.

The investigation into the prostitution ring Lille made a detour to New York and the United States … According to reports, investigations (airline tickets, invoices …) are in progress to clarify the conditions under which professional “Dodo Brine, “a French pimp living in Belgium, traveled to New York” late 2010 “.  Investigators suspect Dominique Strauss-Kahn, then head of the IMF, cited by at least two prostitutes as a client of the network, to have been the beneficiary of these moves. ‘. The hearing as a witness, the former favorite of surveys is described as “probable” source familiar with the matter. JDD
