China frees 2 Canadian nationals, Michael Kovrig, Michael Spavor


(MENAFN)Huawei's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou came back to China after three years of house detention in Canada for supposedly violating the US sanctions against Iran.

Meng Wanzhou's lawyers reached a deal with the US Justice Department that dropped fraud charges against her and the Huawei executive was then freed in a Canadian court following three years of legal turmoil.

China’s Xinhua news agency reported that a charter flight organized by the Chinese government carrying Wanzhou landed in the city of Shenzhen in southern China, where Huawei's headquarters is located.

China freed two Canadian nationals, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, hours after Meng Wanzhou's charges were ended.
