DISGRACED former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been charged with involvement in an organised vice ring that procured prostitutes for top-class clients.

Prosecutors said the 62-year-old former Socialist finance minister and one-time presidential favourite had been released on 100,000 euros ($A126,000) bail following the charges.

Mr Strauss-Kahn was called in by investigating magistrates in the northern French city of Lille two days earlier than expected and charged with an offence that could carry 20 years in prison if he is convicted.

“He firmly declares that he is not guilty of these acts and never had the least inkling that the women he met could have been prostitutes,” said Richard Malka, one of Mr Strauss-Kahn’s counsel.
