After the requests made during the day by France and Gran Brittany and the growing international pressure of recent days, both from global institutions and from the world of sport, has reappeared on video Peng Shuai, the Chinese tennis player whose traces had been lost since November, when she reported being the victim of ansexual assault by the former deputy premier Zhang Gaoli. The player spoke via videoconference with the president of the International Olympic Committee (That is), reassuring him of his condition: “I’m fine and I’m safe”, he said.

Who knows if this meeting, which came after some had been circulated by the Chinese press yesterday Photo who filmed her while she was playing with her cat and some soft toys and after one letter of reassurance always circulated on state TV, has not definitively reassured the international governments that have repeatedly asked Beijing to provide evidence that Shuai was not in danger of life and that his rights were respected. Only this morning, the French foreign minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, he had stated by the way: “I am only waiting for one thing, for Peng Shuai to speak. If the Chinese authorities want to clarify, they must allow her to speak, to say where he is, how he lives and what he does. If it is prevented, if there has been an obvious disappearance, we will be forced to draw diplomatic consequences ”.
