Kahn gets his passport back

Strauss-Kahn’s passport was returned to his lawyers on Thursday, a person familiar with the matter said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the passport’s return, which was done privately.

It is not clear when Strauss-Kahn might use the passport. He has said he “can’t wait to go back” to his native France but he has other things to do first. The IMF has said he plans to visit its headquarters in Washington, DC, where he also has a home, as early as next week.

A weekend trip to New York in May turned into an arrest, nearly a week in jail and about three months in a hastily rented, $50,000-a-month town home for the 62-year-old economist, former diplomat and one-time French presidential prospect. He was initially on house arrest and under armed guard.
