Canadian teacher released but others still detained
A Canadian citizen detained in China last month has been released and returned to Canada, according to the government in Ottawa.
Canada’s national broadcaster, the CBC, identified the citizen as Sarah McIver, a teacher. China’s foreign ministry said she had been undergoing “administrative punishment” for working illegally.
McIver was the third Canadian to be detained by China following the 1 December arrest in Vancouver of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei.
