( 15, 2015)-A French court has acquitted former IMF Chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, of procuring prostitutes for sex parties in France, Belgium and the US.

Mr Strauss-Kahn stood alongside 13 co-defendants, most of whom were acquitted with "aggravated pimping".
Western media say, he has always denied knowing that some of the women who took part in orgies he attended were prostitutes.

The sexual habits of the former French Presidential hopeful were at the centre of trial hearings in Lille in February, 2015.

The verdict brings to a close four years of legal proceedings against Mr Strauss-Kahn, including charges of attempted rape, later dropped in 2012.

 The Chief Judge said Mr Strauss-Kahn behaved as a client and had not paid the sex workers he met.
The judge added.He only benefitted from others paying them to be present for group parties, the Judge added.

Among the others acquitted was Belgian brothel owner, Dominique Alderweireld, also known as Dodo la Saumure, accused of supplying prostitutes for the parties.
