Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai, who disappeared after being accused of sexual assault by a former vice premier of the State Council of China, attended a tennis tournament in Beijing. This is reported by Reuters with reference to the official photos of the organizer of the China Open tournament.
In the footage, the tennis player was among the guests of the Fila Kids Junior Tennis Challenger finals. The WTA called the staffing “inadequate” in the context of the association’s concerns.
Peng Shuai also visited a popular restaurant in downtown Beijing on Saturday evening November 20. Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the state-owned newspaper Global Times, released a video of her visit. The restaurant manager confirmed to Reuters that she was visiting.
Peng Shuai in November on her Weibo account, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, revealed that she had been sexually abused by former Vice Premier of the State Council of China Zhang Gaoli. The statement of the 35-year-old tennis player was almost immediately deleted, and she herself stopped contacting. Later, a letter written on her behalf was posted on the Twitter account of the Chinese state television channel China Global Television Network. In it, she denies that she was abused, and explains her absence by the fact that she was resting.
