Bernard Tapie will undergo in the coming days “several medical interventions” to treat his cancer and “his short-term vital prognosis is not engaged,” a member of his family told AFP on Thursday. “Following the information in the media on his state of health, his family would like to point out that Bernard Tapie is currently preparing a series of medical interventions (chemotherapy, immunotherapy, cryogenics, radiotherapy, surgery) which will take place in the next days, ”said this relative by phone. “In no case”, he added, “it is not a question of entry into palliative care and its short-term vital prognosis is not engaged.”
One of the businessman’s sons, Laurent Tapie, said Thursday morning on BFMTV that his father was hospitalized and that his state of health was “very worrying”. “I do not hide from you that the statistical chances when it is at this stage are appalling”, he said, explaining that the doctors noted “appearances of new tumors in recent days” in his father. , suffering from cancer.
Faced with this deterioration of his state of health, the defense of the former leader of Adidas requested Tuesday a postponement of his appeal trial in the controversial arbitration case supposed to put an end to his dispute with Credit Lyonnais concerning the sale of sports equipment. A request refused by the Paris Court of Appeal “on the grounds that this referral would be contrary to the respect of the reasonable time to which the defendants are entitled”. The trial continues without the person or his lawyers.
