(AP) Serbia's deputy prime minister says former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who faces aggravated pimping charges in France, will be an economic adviser for the Balkan country's top officials.


Aleksandar Vucic told state television late Thursday that Strauss-Kahn will advise him and Serbia's prime and finance ministers on restructuring the country's large foreign debt.


Vucic asserted that the charges against Strauss-Kahn did not tarnish his reputation as a financial expert.


The French case revolves around an alleged hotel prostitution ring and hinges on whether Strauss-Kahn knew he was partying with prostitutes and whose money was used to pay them. His lawyers have said Strauss-Kahn had attended "libertine" gatherings but did not know that some women there were paid.
