While two Canadians kidnapped by China rot away in less than acceptable conditions, China’s Huawei princess is not only living the high life in Vancouver but got approval for her family to visit over the Christmas break.
While the borders are supposedly closed and most Canadians aren’t allowed to have relatives come and visit due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Trudeau government gave approval for Meng’s family to come visit. While it may seem hard to believe any government would approve this, the government admitted to this mistake on Thursday.
Meng’s husband Liu Xiaozong was granted permission to come visit her in Canada in October. The couple’s two children came in December. These details came out in a bail hearing on Thursday as the Huawei princess asked for the court to relax her restrictions.
While Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor have been detained for more than two years in conditions most Canadians would consider horrid, Meng has lived a life of luxury while fighting extradition to the United States. Meng was detained by Canadian officials in early December 2018 on an extradition warrant from American authorities who want her on charges of fraud and breaking sanctions against Iran.
Days after Meng was arrested, Chinese authorities arrested Kovrig and Spavor in retaliation claiming the two men were spies. They have yet to have their day in court but Meng has had plenty and now wants a Canadian court to grant her more freedom.
Give me a break. She should be held in an actual prison until China releases Kovrig and Spavor.
