Washington. US female gymnast Simone Biles, one of the world’s most successful athletes, cried in the courtroom on Wednesday. She was testifying in front of the US Senate about sexual abuse against former team doctor Larry Nassar. Along with him, two other players Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney also became emotional.
A Senate team is investigating the FBI’s lack of investigation into the case of Nassar, who is serving a life sentence in prison. Dr Nassar has been convicted for sexually abusing 300 girls. US lawmakers told Simone how the FBI, US gymnasts and Olympic officials failed to stop sexual abuse. She cried and said, “Let me be clear, I blame Larry Nassar as well as this whole system, which has caused this incident to happen.
The whole system is responsible for the exploitation of girls.
Simeon, who won 7 Olympic medals and 25 World Championship medals, accused the FBI’s investigation of saying that the FBI did not do its job properly in this serious matter. Which allowed him to commit the crime. If one allows a predator to harm children, the consequences will be dire.
Nassar is serving life in jail
Let us tell you that despite being reported for the first time in 2015, Nassar remained associated with the team for a long time and kept making the girls of the team his victim. In 2017 he was put in jail. He was sentenced to 60 years in 2017 for possession of child porn. Whereas under MeToo, hundreds of girls had accused him of sexual abuse. After being found guilty in this case, he was sentenced to 175 and 125 years in two different courts. However, Nassar then apologized in court.
