The IMF chief charged with a sex attack on a hotel maid has resigned from his post ahead of a new bail hearing in New York.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn maintained his innocence in a formal letter to the organisation and said he was quitting with “infinite sadness”.
“I think at this time first of my wife – whom I love more than anything – of my children, of my family, of my friends,” he said.
“I think also of my colleagues at the fund – together we have accomplished such great things over the last three years and more.
“To all, I want to say that I deny with the greatest possible firmness all of the allegations that have been made against me.”
