French writer Tristane Banon has dropped all legal action against "sex attacker" and former International Monetary Fund (IMF) president Dominique Strauss-Kahn.



Banon also warned him to ‘keep a low profile’.



According to the Daily Mail, the development came as increasingly sleazy allegations about the 62-year-old’s involvement in an international vice ring came to light.



Banon, now 33, maintains that Strauss Kahn had tried to rape her in a Paris flat in 2003.



Judges agreed that she had been sexually assaulted, but because the statute of limitations for such a crime in France is three years, police stopped investigating last week.



Banon said she was satisfied that Strauss-Kahn’s status as a ‘sex attacker’ had been proved, and that she had achieved a legal ‘victory.’
