The serial around the Chinese tennis star, who suddenly disappeared after accusing one-state Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Gaoli for sexual assault, does not end.
Yesterday VG wrote about Joe Biden, who has now thrown himself into the case, and required independent verifiable proof of her whereabouts.
He demands this after the journalist Shen Shiwei on Friday sent out what are allegedly fresh pictures of her. Shen works for CGTN, an international division of the state-controlled channel CCTV.
On the night before Sunday, the same Shen published another new “proof” that Peng is alive. It’s a video from a gym, and Shen writes:
Peng Shuai will attend the opening ceremony of the Junior Tennis Challenger Finals this morning.
The video from the tennis tournament is also published by the Global Times, another station controlled by the Chinese state, writes BBC.
Shen also published a video where Peng signs balls and poses with happy children, apparently in the same sports hall.
On Sunday night, Reuters writes that Peng has seen the tennis tournament, according to official photos from the China Open.
The WTA, the women’s tennis association, still cannot be reassured.
“The images and videos of Peng Shuai are insufficient and do not respond to the WTA’s concerns,” the statement said.
The night before, he published another video where she had dinner with the deputy head of the China Open, Zhang Junhui, and some others. He talks without Peng answering and in the chat, according to CNN, it is striking that Zhang talks about specific dates. “Tomorrow is November 21, the day of the last match in Duanshi.
According to CNN, another man, Ding Li, also posted a picture of the dinner session.
