Former IMF chief and French presidency hopeful Dominique Strauss-Kahn was in news for alleged sexual assault case against him which was dramatically dropped. The scandal however, forced him to resign his IMF post and destroyed his political career. Reuters


The former head of the International Monetary Fund Dominique Strauss-Kahn plans a legal challenge to a Belgian sex club set to bear his initials "DSK".

The "DSKlub" opens on Wednesday evening and, according to Belgian media, will employ six women and a transsexual and is the invention of Dominique Alderweireld, generally known as "Dodo La Saumure", a play on words on the slang for a pimp.

Strauss-Kahn, commonly referred to as DSK, is a former French finance minister and was seen as a strong contender for France's 2012 presidential election until a sexual assault case in New York in 2011, which was later dropped, brought his ambitions to a halt.

"Mr. Strauss-Kahn has announced that he will take all judicial measures necessary to end the damage to his name which results from this," a statement by his Belgian lawyer said.

Alderweireld told Belgian media his club's name was not meant as a reference to Strauss-Kahn, with the initials standing for "Dodo Sex Klub".
