WASHINGTON - In a letter to IMF staff circulated on Monday, former IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn strongly denied charges against him and called the events around his arrest on attempted rape "a personal nightmare."

In the letter distributed to the fund's staff in an email by IMF acting Managing Director John Lipsky, Strauss-Kahn apologized for the pain his case had caused the global lender and said he was confident he would eventually be exonerated.

Strauss-Kahn is facing charges he tried to rape a hotel maid at an upscale hotel in New York City on May 14. He is being held at a Manhattan safe house under around-the-clock armed guard after being freed on bail on Friday.
