International Monetary Fund, IMF, chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn on sexual assault accusations on Sunday. Strauss-Kahn was set to appear in a New York court on Monday where his lawyers said he would deny all charges against him.
Strauss-Kahn was set to appear in court on Monday after agreeing to “scientific and forensic examination”, one of his lawyers, William Taylor, said.
He “intends to vigorously defend these charges and denies any wrongdoing”, according to another lawyer, Benjamin Brafman.
Brafman and Taylor are high-profile celebrity lawyers. Taylor defended Strauss-Kahn in 2008 in a case involving an extra-marital affair with a female colleague at the IMF. He also represented Michael Jackson when he was accused of child sex and rapper Sean P Diddy Combs on arms and corruption charges.
