Full text of Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s letter of resignation

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Board:

It is with infinite sadness that I feel compelled today to present to the Executive Board my resignation from my post of Managing Director of the IMF.

I think at this time first of my wife, whom I love more than anything, of my children, of my family, of my friends.

I think also of my colleagues at the Fund; together we have accomplished such great things over the last three years and more.

To all, I want to say that I deny with the greatest possible firmness all of the allegations that have been made against me.

I want to protect this institution which I have served with honor and devotion, and especially, especially, I want to devote all my strength, all my time, and all my energy to proving my innocence.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn
