Sport, doping and corruption ... The trial of Lamine Diack, the former boss of the International Athletics Federation, must resume today before the Paris Criminal Court. It opened in January and was immediately postponed. And unless there is a further postponement, this trial will run until June 18. Lamine Diack is suspected of having set up a vast system of corruption intended to protect doped Russian athletes. Lamine Diack is on trial, as is his son Papa Massata Diack, who still lives in Senegal. An investigative journalist for the French daily newspaper "Le Monde", Yann Bouchez was able to consult the investigation file.
