• REFILE AFTER COURT IN LILLE GAVE VERDICT  Former FMI head Dominique Strauss-Kahn enters his car as he leaves his apartment in Paris, France, June 12, 2015 before he traveled to Lille to learn the verdict in the trial called the Carlton Affair where 14 people including Strauss-Kahn stood accused of sex offences including the alleged procuring of prostitutes. A French court on Friday acquitted former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of charges that he instigated sex parties with prostitutes. The decision fits with a view expressed in February by the state prosecutor, who called for the 66 year-old to be acquitted because of a lack of proof.

Ex-IMF Chief wants Greece’s creditors to agree to nominal debt reductions

D. Strauss-Kahn calls for compromise

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn called on Greece’s creditors to accept a nominal debt reduction and a temporary suspension of payments. His article, titled “On learning from one’s mistakes” was posted on his Twitter page:

“My proposal is the following: Greece should get no more new financing from the EU or the IMF but it should get a generous maturity extension and significant nominal debt reduction from the official sector.”

He said that with the unfavorable turn which negotiations between Greece and creditors are taking, as well as with the announcement of a referendum, “it is necessary to recall some truths in order to take a different direction. “
