Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today Canada will continue to connect Beijing’s choice to charge two Canadians with spying to the arrest of a Chinese tech executive, hours after China scolded him to “stop making reckless remarks.”
” Within the extremely first few days of the detention of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, Chinese officials were highlighting a link in between the detention a week prior to of Meng and the arrest of the two Michaels,” Trudeau stated today during his everyday rundown outside Rideau Home.
” It has actually been obvious from the start that this was a political decision made by the Chinese government, and we deplore it and have from the very start.”
Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were apprehended in what was extensively viewed as an attempt to pressure Canada after Meng’s December 2018 arrest in Vancouver. Charges versus them were revealed Friday after a Canadian judge ruled the extradition case of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou can proceed to its next phase, moving her closer to being handed over to American authorities.
