The Guardian Weekly - - Global report -

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.
