China Jails Canadian Businessman

China has convicted Canadian businessman Michael Spavor on charges of espionage and sentenced him to 11 years in prison. He’s also been fined over $7000. His conviction is believed to be linked to the extradition battle involving Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, now ongoing in a Canadian court. In fact, Spavor was arrested around the same time as the case against Meng was filed.
