16th May 2011, Comments 0 comments

IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who has been charged with sexual assault, has no diplomatic immunity, a police official said.

"He did not have diplomatic immunity," New York Police spokesman John Grimpel told AFP.

Strauss-Kahn was charged Sunday with the sexual assault and attempted rape of a 32-year-old chambermaid in the luxury Sofitel hotel near Times Square.

He is scheduled to enter a plea in court on Monday.

Grimpel said it was up to the judge whether the IMF leader would be freed on bail following his court appearance.
