Strauss-Kahn Named to Rosneft Bank Board

July 15, 2013

Dominique Strauss-Kahn has joined the supervisory board of the bank owned by Russia's largest oil company, Rosneft, the bank said Monday, two years after Strauss-Kahn resigned as head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The 64-year-old Frenchman was appointed one of the 11 board members of the Russian Regional Development Bank, a subsidiary of the state oil company, a bank spokeswoman said.

Strauss-Kahn resigned from the IMF in 2011 after a New York hotel maid accused him of rape. He denied the charges, which were later dropped, and he has since settled a civil suit filed by his accusor.

The charges, however, derailed his ambitions to run as the Socialist presidential candidate in last year's elections in France.
