BEIJING – A Chinese state television employee has uploaded photos of Peng Shiai, the missing tennis player, online. This is in an attempt to dispel concerns about her disappearance following a sexual assault accusation against a senior leader.
These photos were posted to Twitter on Friday. This is not visible to most Chinese internet users.
An employee of state television wrote that they were on Peng’s WeChat account with the comment “Happy Weekend.”
To prove that Peng is safe and allows her to speak freely, the three-time Olympian Peng and former women’s doubles world champion Peng are getting more and more requests for their support from the ruling Communist Party.
According to the editor of a newspaper published by a party, she will soon be made publicly.
