Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been released from police custody in France after two days of questioning about a prostitution ring.
Strauss-Kahn's name came up during their probe into a prostitution ring at hotels in Lille and Paris, which also implicates a police official.
According to Bloomberg, French builder Eiffage SA filed an embezzlement complaint after an internal probe found an employee spent as much as EUR 50 000 to pay for women to travel as far as Washington to have sex with Strauss-Kahn
Police are trying to find out if Strauss-Kahn was aware that corporate money was used to pay the women and whether he played an active role in booking prostitutes for sex parties he allegedly attended.
A chambermaid at the Sofitel Hotel in Manhattan accused Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault in May 2011.
Prosecutors dropped all charges against Strauss-Kahn on August 23 after doubts emerged over the credibility of his accuser, Guinean immigrant Nafissatou Diallo.
