Strauss-Kahn, wife attend concert in Massachusetts

WASHINGTON, (AFP) – Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, battling attempted rape charges in New York, has attended two Boston Symphony Orchestra concerts in Lenox, Massachusetts, The New York Times said Saturday.

The newspaper said the first concert on Thursday was a recital by Danish violinist Nikolaj Znaider.

Strauss-Kahn was back on Friday for a concert with conductor Kurt Masur and cellist Lynn Harrell, the paper reported.

Strauss-Kahn, who had orchestra seats and was photographed with his wife, declined to talk to reporters.

He was released from house arrest earlier this month after US prosecutors raised concerns about the credibility of the New York hotel chambermaid who accused him of sexual assault.

But the charges made by the Guinean woman have not been dismissed, and Strauss-Kahn is due back in court on July 18.
