The bail hearing for former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is scheduled to be held at 2:15 pm (1815 GMT) Thursday, court officials said.

Strauss-Kahn has been charged with seven counts of sexual assault and attempted rape. Defense lawyers will call for the ex-IMF chief to be released on bail, vowing to post $1 million in bail, turn in his travel documents and submit to electronic monitoring.
