If you were told by your old fashion French teacher that ‘lady’ should be translated by ‘femme’, please read carefully and consequently adapt your language. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the IMF, referres to young ladies as “luggage” and “gifts” when planning his alleged sex orgies according to a leaked transcript of the police questioning.

REUTERS - Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was placed under formal investigation on Monday by authorities looking into a suspected prostitution ring in the French city of Lille, his lawyer said, following a day of questioning by judges in a closed courtroom. The investigation on suspicion of complicity in a pimping operation is the latest judicial headache for the Socialist ex-finance minister. The move could lead to a trial but it falls short of charging him. Strauss-Kahn, 62, who was a strong contender to be France’s next president until he was hit with sex-assault charges, now-dismissed, in New York last May, was allowed to leave the court after being questioned by three judges in the case. The Lille prosecutor’s office said in a statement he was required to post 100,000 euros ($133,300) in bail. He is forbidden to contact witnesses, the press, and others involved in the prostitution case, it said.
