Dominique Struass Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, will go on trial in a French court over pimping charges, according to media reports Friday, which were posted by MarketWatch.

Investigators decided that Struass-Kahn should face criminal charges after looking into allegations the disgraced politician was involved in a prostitution ring in Lille, the BBC reported.

Strauss-Kahn, who once planned to run for French president, has admitted taking part in sex parties at the Carlton Hotel in French city, but said he was unaware that some women were prostitutes.

The investigation centered on allegations that officials and local business leaders in Lille supplied women for sex parties at the Hotel in the French city, but said he was unaware that some women there were prostitutes.
