Dominique Strauss-Kahn to sue French rape accuser for slander

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn plans to sue for slander a French woman who said she will file an attempted rape complaint against him, his lawyers said in a statement Monday.

Earlier French journalist and writer Tristane Banon, 32, who once branded Strauss-Kahn a “rutting chimpanzee”, indicated she would lodge “a complaint for attempted rape” against him, her lawyer David Koubbi told the news magazine L’Express on its website.

Koubbi added he would likely send the complaint to French prosecutors on Tuesday.

But Strauss-Kahn, who resigned from his post at the IMF after being charged with sexual assault in New York, fired back at his French accuser.

His lawyers Henri Leclerc and Frederique Baulieu told AFP in a statement that Strauss-Kahn had taken note of Banon’s intentions, but dismissed her charges as “imaginary.”
