La campionessa olimpica di nuoto Agnel nega la coercizione nel caso di stupro

Il procuratore Edwige Roux-Morizot ha detto Agnel “riconosce la materialità dei fatti addotti” ma lei ha detto che non aveva “la sensazione che ci fosse coercizione.”


If the facts constitute rape or sexual assault, it is because there is a significant age difference,” Roux-Morizot said.

Agnel was 24 when the alleged rape took place. The girl was reportedly 13.

Agnel was arrested in Paris last week. Di sabato, he was handed preliminary charges and the case was sent to Mulhouse, eastern France.

Roux-Morizot also said the events took place in 2016 in several locations, including Spain, Thailand and Brazil.

In Francia, an adult cannot have consensual sex with somebody under 15 Anni. All'inizio di quest'anno, the French parliament adopted legislation that characterises sex with a child under the age of 15 as rape and punishable by up to 20 anni in prigione, bringing its penal code closer in line with many other western nations.

French media has said the investigation was launched after a swimmer who trained with Agnel in Mulhouse from 2014-16 ha intentato una causa. L’Équipe newspaper said several swimmers, current and retired, have already been questioned as part of the investigation.

Agnel won two gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics, in the 200-meter freestyle and the 4×100 free relay. Si è ritirato a 2016.
