New York, May 16 (PTI) International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was today set to appear before a court here to answer charges of sexually assaulting a hotel maid - a scandal that may bury his ambitions of becoming the next President of France.

Strauss-Kahn, a veteran French politician, was picked up out of a police lineup by the chambermaid last night, who has accused him of molesting her, according to media reports.

The French financial wizard's arraignment was put off for a day after he agreed to forensic testing requested by the police as his attorney Benjamin Brafman vowed that his client proposed to fight charges of sexual assault.

Strauss-Kahn, a likely candidate for 2012 presidential race in France, has been charged with attempted rape, sexual assault and unlawful imprisonment.

62-year-old IMF chief has denied the charges against him.
