Strauss-Kahn 'wants to be quizzed'

Former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn who has demanded the opportunity to clear his name from a hotel vice-ring scandal

Former IMF boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn wants to be questioned by police so that he can dismiss claims he was linked to a suspected hotel prostitution ring.

His awyer Frederique Beaulieu said Mr Strauss-Kahn "is asking to be questioned to put an end to these insinuations and extrapolations".

The lawyer said Mr Strauss-Kahn expressed his wishes in a statement but has not yet been contacted by police.

Prosecutors in the northern city of Lille are investigating a suspected prostitution ring in France and neighbouring Belgium. The head of Lille's luxury Hotel Carlton was among those detained.

The weekly Journal du Dimanche said Mr Strauss-Kahn's name surfaced in the investigation as a possible client.
