Sarkozy govt denies Strauss-Kahn setup

France’s interior minister on Sunday dismissed as “pure fantasy” hints by associates of former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of a setup leading to his New York arrest on sexual assault charges. “I would say that its pure fantasy,” Claude Gueant told French television. “I read Epstein’s article. What does it say? That DSK lost his phone. It’s not because one loses one’s phone that there is a setup.”
He was referring to an article by Edward Epstein in the New York Review of Books, in which sources said Strauss-Kahn — known in France by his initials DSK — suspected a smartphone that disappeared before his arrest had been hacked. The article also has associates hinting that Strauss-Kahn may have been set up in order to discredit him ahead of presidential elections in France in 2012 that he had been tipped to win. But Gueant dismissed any suggestions of a setup.
