The former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Khan, has entered a plea of not guilty in a New York court to charges of attempted rape and sexual assault.

The 62-year-old Frenchman is accused of assaulting a maid at the Manhattan hotel where he was staying on 14 May.

The complainant's lawyer said outside court she "just wants justice".

Mr Strauss-Kahn's lawyer said there had been "no element of compulsion" in the incident between the two parties.

His next court date is set for 18 July.

The former finance chief - who faces up to 25 years in prison if found guilty - arrived at New York Supreme Court on Monday with his wife, the French television journalist Anne Sinclair.

Hmm.. guess we'll let the court decide their fate. At least it's a good thing that even big men like him can be charged before a court of law. No buying off in this one! Cheesy
