10:17, August 30, 2011

WASHINGTON, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Washington-based International Monetary Fund (IMF) said Monday that its former head Dominique Strauss-Kahn paid a visit to the global lender and met with its chief staff members.

He visited IMF headquarters Monday afternoon, and current IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde met him prior to his meeting with Fund staff, an IMF spokesman said in a short statement.

"These were private meetings, arranged at his request. We have no further comment to offer," noted the statement.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus has dismissed criminal sexual assault charges filed against Strauss-Kahn in New York City.
