Paris: Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his wife are suing a top aide of French President Nicolas Sarkozy and several media outlets over reports linking him to a prostitution probe, their lawyers said on Tuesday.

The disgraced former IMF chief and his multi- millionaire wife Anne Sinclair claim their right to privacy has been breached — an offence under French law — by the media and by comments made by Sarkozy aide Henri Guaino.

Strauss-Kahn’s name has been linked to a judicial investigation into an illegal prostitution ring operating out of luxury hotels in the northern French city of Lille and a string of Belgian brothels. Strauss-Kahn has demanded to be questioned by the judges and called for a probe into the leaks, but it is not yet clear whether he will face charges. (PTI)
