The prosecutor asks that former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is acquitted in the so-called Carlton affair in France.
Before the trial started, the prosecutor Frederic Fevre wanted to drop the case against the former French finance minister and IMF boss - but was stopped by the investigators in the case, according to AFP.
Mr. Strauss-Kahn has been charged with “aggravated pimping” and could if convicted face a maximum 10-year prison sentence and a fine of up to €1.5 million ($1.7 million), according to court documents.
French magistrates suspected Mr. Strauss-Kahn of being one of the organizers of sex parties with prostitutes in a case known in France as the “Carlton affair”, after the hotel where an alleged prostitution ring operated in the northern French city of Lille.
