Canada’s Spavor, detained by China in 2018, sentenced to 11 years, to be deported: Reports

Moscow, Aug 11: Canadian Michael Spavor, detained by China in late 2018, has been sentenced to 11 years in prison by a Chinese court on spying charges, CBC reported.

The court also called for Spavor’s deportation and confiscation of some $10,000 of personal property. It was not immediately clear when the Canadian could be forced to leave China.

China detained Spavor in December 2018 – several days after Huawei Technologies’ Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Vancouver.
