The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has not maintained any contact with its managing director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn since his arrest in New York over the weekend on alleged sexual assault charges, the IMF has said.
"We have not had contact with the managing director since his arrest in New York. Obviously, it will be important to be in contact with him in due course," said William Murray, spokesperson, IMF.
"We are aware of widespread speculation about the managing director's status. We have no comment on this speculation, other than to note, as we did earlier this week, that the Executive Board was briefed informally on developments regarding his arrest in New York," Murray said.
