A French court has postponed its ruling in a case in which former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn and others are suspected of arranging sex parties with prostitutes.

The decision will be given on December 19, France 24 informs.

Strauss-Kahn's lawyers have requested that the sex-crimes inquiry be cancelled, saying that normal investigation procedures were ignored.

The case against Strauss-Kahn stems from an investigation into a prostitution ring at a luxury hotel in the northern French city of Lille. It centres around allegations that business leaders and police officials operated a vice ring supplying prostitutes for sex parties, some of which took place at the Carlton Hotel in the northern city.

A chambermaid at the Sofitel Hotel in Manhattan accused Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault in May 2011.Prosecutors dropped all charges against Strauss-Kahn after doubts emerged over the credibility of his accuser, Guinean immigrant Nafissatou Diallo.
