Sri Lanka nixes Kahn deal after paying $750,000

Sri Lanka’s new government on Thursday said it was cutting ties with sex scandal plagued ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn after paying him $750,000 for being an advisor to attract foreign investment.

Spokesman Rajitha Senaratne said the cabinet had decided to terminate the services of the 65-year-old economist, who is now on trial in France accused of pimping. “The Central Bank of Sri Lanka had hired LSK and Partners,” headed by Strauss-Khan, without the proper authority to do so, Senaratne told reporters. He said $50,000 had been paid to Strauss-Kahn’s LSK and partners, but it was not clear what work he had carried out.
