On Wednesday, a Chinese court sentenced Canadian businessman Michael Spavor to 11 years in prison for spying, which Ottawa promptly criticised as politically motivated.

After Huawei executive MengWanzhou was arrested in Canada on a US extradition request in 2018, Spavor and fellow Canadian Michael Kovrig were jailed on trumped-up accusations, according to Ottawa.

China accuses Canada of politicising court proceedings, and relations between the two nations are at an all-time low. Spavor “was convicted of spying and illegally revealing state secrets,” according to a statement from Dandong city’s Intermediate People’s Court.
