International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Dick Pound stated the group’s consentaneous choice concerning tennis star Peng Shuai, whose security was an issue following her sexual attack accusation versus a high-ranking federal government member, is that she is “fine.” On Nov. 21 the IOC composed in a declaration that in a video call with IOC president Thomas Bach, Peng appeared to be “relaxed.”

Peng implicated previous Chinese Communist Party leader Zhang Gaoli of sexual attack on Nov. 2 and was not spoken with or seen for a substantial quantity of time, resulting in concerns about her security. After Peng’s post of the allegation was removed by the Chinese federal government and she was not seen, requires evidence of her security and liberty originated from the tennis world and beyond.

Pound states the call with Peng, which he has actually not seen video of, is “the best evidence we have at the moment,” according to CNN.

“There are great deals of nations where you can’t quickly leave the nation. I believe a great deal of that is speculation … What we have is difficult proof as we can have and feel. These are individuals who have actually handled professional athletes and handled pressure. They can inform whether someone is acting under pressure or not.

“Their unanimous conclusion was that she was fine. And she just asked that her privacy be respected for the time being.”

Not everybody concurs with Pound’s viewpoint concerning the circumstance.

The European Union revealed on Tuesday that it desires a transparent examination into the sexual attack claims and desires China to launch “verifiable proof” that Peng is safe. They included that Peng’s “recent public reappearance does not ease concerns about her safety and freedom.”
