The unanswered questions of the Peng Shuai case | Financial Times

Peng Shuai, the Chinese tennis star, made an allegation of sexual assault against a senior Communist party leader, disappeared for weeks, then reappeared in a series of videos released by state media. Her case has shown the dilemmas of dealing with a country that has a vast and growing market, but scant respect for human rights, freedom of expression or the rule of law. One international sporting body — the Women’s Tennis Association — handled its dilemma well. Another — the International Olympic Committee — did not.
