French newspaper Nord Eclair has published an interview with a former prostitute named “Jade” that alleges she was taken abroad with the former-IMF chief Dominique Strauss Kahn several times, and even made a visit to the IMF headquarters in Washington DC with the now disgraced French politician.Here’s a translation of the key passage:
“[One in America], she says he cruised in the U.S. capital, then spending the evening at the W Hotel, where sex took place. The next day, she says she visited the headquarters of the IMF together with DSK – we could see a photograph in which Jade appeared alongside former IMF chief, in his office. Again she says she was paid in cash this time by David [a man accused by French police of involvement in prostitution] on his return to France. “David Roquet recontacted me for another trip to Washington, but I was not free”.“
The news would seem to tie into earlier reports that Strauss Kahn had prostitutes flown to him while in New York, and that the former police officer who acted as his pimp was at one point visiting Washington D.C.
