PARIS May 16 A French lawyer said on Monday his
client was considering filing a legal complaint against IMF
chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn over an alleged sexual assault on
her almost a decade ago.
Lawyer David Koubbi said his client Tristane Banon, a
writer, may file a complaint over an alleged incident that took
place when she went to interview Strauss-Kahn, a former French
finance minister, in an apartment.
"We are considering filing a complaint," Koubbi said in a
text message to Reuters.
Strauss-Kahn was charged in New York at the weekend with
sexually assaulting a hotel chambermaid. His lawyer said he
would plead not guilty.
