[Epoch Times November 22, 2021]The disappearance of Chinese female tennis player Peng Shuai has aroused high international concern about human rights issues in China. British media reported that the member states of the “Five Eyes Alliance” are discussing diplomatic boycotts of the Beijing Winter Olympics.

The Times reported on the 21st that the United Kingdom is “actively discussing” diplomatic boycotts of the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing with other members of the Five Eyes in a protest against China ( The CCP’s human rights record includes the persecution of athletes with dissident political views.

The member states of the “Five Eyes Alliance” include the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.

According to reports, boycott options include a joint statement issued by all member states of the “Five Eyes Alliance,” but the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada are more likely to act jointly.

Previously, five British MPs, including Tom Tugendhat, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the British Parliament, and Sir Iain Duncan Smith, the former Conservative Party leader, had a clear-cut stand in criticizing Beijing and sent a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the 17th. Ask him to diplomatically boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics and prohibit officials from attending.

Peng Shuai, 35, posted a post on the mainland Weibo in early November, accusing Zhang Gaoli, the former Vice Premier of the State Council of the Communist Party of China, of sexually assaulting her and their long-term relationship. Peng Shuai’s whereabouts have been unknown since then, and he has been missing for nearly 20 days. Her report was also completely deleted.

The disappearance of Peng Shuai has aroused continuous attention from the international community. The World Women’s Professional Tennis Association (WTA) took the lead in stating that Peng Shuai’s allegations “must be investigated in a comprehensive, fair, transparent and non-approved manner” and issued a statement “withdrawal from the Chinese market at any cost”. The White House, the United Nations, and the British Foreign Ministry have successively called for investigation of Peng Shuai’s allegations, and Beijing should provide verifiable evidence on Peng Shuai’s whereabouts.

The Wimbledon tennis tournament (Wimbledon) also issued a statement on the evening of the 20th, saying that it is cooperating with the WTA to try to understand Peng Shuai’s safety through channels. Wimbledon also hopes that Peng Shuai understands that her well-being is the primary concern of the world tennis community.

The United Nations last week called on the Chinese Communist Party to provide evidence to prove that Peng Shuai is fine.
