Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the IMF, goes on trial in France this week on charges of “aggravated pimping". The so-called Carlton Affair centres on allegations that businessmen and police officials in the town of Lille in northern France supplied women for sex parties in Lille, Paris and Washington. It is the latest twist in a steep fall from grace for the former global finance chief since 2011. Fiona Symon talks Michael Stothard about the case.
