Ex-IMF Boss's Wife 'Mortgages Mansion to Raise Bail Bond'

Washington, May 22 (PTI) Disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn's wife has put her mansion in the US on the block to raise US dollars six million as bail bond to get her husband, facing sexual assault charges, released from New York's Rikers Island prison, a media report said.

The 62-year-old French politician's bail was set at US dollars one million in cash and a US dollars five million insurance bond, which his wife, heiress and French television presenter Anne Sinclair, raised by mortgaging her mansion in Washington DC, the 'Daily Mail' online reported.

If her husband absconds, she will forfeit the money and the house in the exclusive Georgetown district, which she bought in 2007 for US dollars four million, the report said.
