Strauss-Kahn blames his political enemies for his arrest on sexual charges
29 April 2012
Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn says his arrest and imprisonment on sexual assault charges last year was somewhat the work of his political enemies in France.
Before the scandal, Strauss-Kahn was regarded as a frontrunner for the French presidency.
In an interview, he accuses enemies linked to President Nicolas Sarkozy of helping destroy his chances.
The French presidential vote takes place next weekend. Indications are than Sarkozy could lose to Socialist Francois Hollande.
