This Is How The Head Of The IMF Conducts Interviews, According To Another Alleged Victim

This is an account from Tristane Banon, who earlier this week said she intends to file a complaint against Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

In the clip the blonde Miss Banon, 22 at the time of the incident, tells a group of well-known journalists and actors she had requested a chat with Mr Strauss-Kahn for a book of interviews with leading French figures about the "biggest mistake you ever made". She arrived at a studio with little more than a bed in it. She said he had insisted on holding her hand during the interview, then her arm and then made advances to her. There was no independent confirmation of her allegations.

"It ended really badly. We ended up fighting. It finished really violently," the clip shows her saying. "We fought on the floor. It wasn't a case of a couple of slaps. I kicked him, he unhooked my bra, he tried to open my jeans," she said. The politician acted, she said, like a "chimpanzee on heat". "I said the word 'rape' to scare him but it didn't seem to scare him much, which suggests he was used to it," she said.
