NY Judge Remands IMF Chief in Custody

Monday, 16 May 2011 02:12 PM

 

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York judge remanded IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn in custody Monday on charges he sexually assaulted a hotel maid.

Strauss-Kahn is due to reappear in court on May 20.

Prosecutors has said they were concerned that Strauss-Kahn might flee to France if released. Defense lawyers said Strauss-Kahn denied the charges against him.

Strauss-Kahn was pulled off a Paris-bound plane Saturday and charged with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment Sunday in a scandal that appeared to wreck his hopes of running for president of France.

The allegations have also raised questions about Strauss-Kahn's ability to remain in the top job at the International Monetary Fund, based in Washington.
