In December of 2018, Canadians Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig had been arrested in China, allegedly on spying fees. This occurred days after Canada’s detention of Huawei govt Meng Wanzhou on the request of the US. Meng was accused of mendacity to British financial institution HSBC about Huawei’s affiliate Skycom and its connections to Iran, which put the financial institution afoul of US sanctions. Meng fought the US’s extradition request, and in September 2021, the Biden administration labored out a deferred prosecution settlement with Meng in return for her admission that she misled HSBC about Huawei’s relationship with Skycom. In this episode of China Unscripted, we’re joined by Fen Hampson, the chancellor’s professor at Carleton University and president of the World Refugee & Migration Council, and Mike Blanchfield, the worldwide affairs author for The Canadian Press. They are the authors of the e book: The Two Michaels: Innocent Canadian Captives and High Stakes Espionage within the US-China Cyber War.
