Convicted felon Lamine Diack free to return to Senegal

Former president of the International Association of Athletics Federation (World Athletics) Lamine Diack is free to return to Senegal. Due to his age, of 87, he has not spent any time in a French prison and may return, however, must pay €500,000. Surely, between his crimes or his son’s alleged crimes of extortion, they have the money. Regardless, a group named the Lamine Diack Collective is trying to raise the money to bring him home.
