French Police’s Inquiry by the Dominique Strauss-Kahn's daughter

French prosecutors have inquired one of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's daughters about an accusation that he tried to rape a French author.

Camille Strauss-Kahn is a friend of the suspected sufferer Tristane Banon.
Ms. Banon says the past IMF chief attacked her in a Paris flat in 2003 as she tried to conduct an interview with him.
Discretely, Mr Strauss-Kahn rejects allegations of sexually attacking a New York hotel maid on 14 May.
Mr. Strauss-Kahn was released from house detention in the US city prior this month after the reliability of his plaintiff's evidence came into query.
Police inquired Camille Strauss-Kahn on Monday, a judicial official speaking on condition of obscurity told the Associated Press.
Her mother, Mr Strauss-Kahn's ex-wife, Brigitte Guillemette, was inquired on Friday, legal sources said. She is Ms Banon's godmother.
It was in a while after Mr. Strauss-Kahn was detained in New York that Ms Banon - now 32 - came ahead to say that he had attempted to attack her eight years ago.
She said she had not followed the case at the time because "everybody told me it would never achieve something", but that following the accusations in New York there was "possibly an opportunity to ultimately be paid attention to".
Mr Strauss-Kahn rejects any misdeed, and has opened a counter-claim suing Ms. Banon for making wrong statements.
According to the French law, the allegation of attempted rape carries an utmost punishment of 15 years in jail. However, the investigator' questioned may not lead to official allegations.
Ms. Banon and her mother, Anne Mansouret, herself a politician from Mr. Strauss-Kahn's centre-left Socialist Party, were discussed by police last week.
