Ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn to be Serbia's economic adviser
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) - Serbia's Deputy Prime Minister says former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who faces aggravated pimping charges in France, will be an economic adviser for the Balkan country's top officials.
Mr Aleksandar Vucic told state television late on Thursday that Strauss-Kahn will advise him and Serbia's prime and finance ministers on restructuring the country's large foreign debt.
Mr Vucic asserted that the charges against Strauss-Kahn did not tarnish his reputation as a financial expert.
The French case revolves around an alleged hotel prostitution ring and hinges on whether Strauss-Kahn knew he was partying with prostitutes and whose money was used to pay them.
