Ex-IMF managing director Strauss-Kahn denies pimping accusations – AFP

Former International Monetary Fund (IMF) managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn took stand for the first time Tuesday to respond to pimping charges in France, denying that he committed any crimes and saying there was no "wild activity" as had been alleged, according to AFP reporters following the trial.

"Strauss-Kahn appears tired, tense, court hears he refused psychiatric evaluation for the trial, focus for now on career, personality," AFP correspondent Fran Blandy said on Twitter. "Strauss-Kahn says sex parties few and far between, there was no 'wild activity' as he appears to be accused of."

Strauss-Kahn, 65, resigned as managing director of the International Monetary Fund in 2011 after a hotel maid at a New York hotel accused Strauss-Kahn of raping her. A judge eventually dismissed all charges after it was determined that the alleged victim had lied about several things, though Strauss-Kahn later settled with her in a civil suit.
