A court in the French city of Douai is expected to decide Wednesday whether to maintain the preliminary charges.

Strauss-Kahn's lawyers say he attended "libertine" gatherings but didn't know some women present were paid.

The case is one part of an intercontinental legal saga that exposed Strauss-Kahn's active sex life and buried his French presidential ambitions.

Strauss-Kahn reached a settlement in New York last week with a hotel maid who accused of him of trying to rape her in May 2011.
