In Just Two Days China Has Sentenced Two Canadians To Death

 


Relations between China and Canada grew worse after Canadian police arrested Huawei Technologies Chief Financial Officer and the daughter of the founder of Chinese tech giant Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, at Vancouver's airport in late 2018.

A court in China has sentenced a Canadian to death for transporting and manufacturing drugs, the second Canadian in just two days to receive the death penalty for narcotics.

The Intermediate People's Court of Foshan City in Guangdong Province said Ye Jianhui was given the death sentence for "the crime of transporting and manufacturing drugs," according to a court statement released on Friday.

Ye Jianhui, a Canadian national, was sentenced after a trial in the southern city of Foshan, the Foshan Intermediate People's Court said in a notice on its website on Friday.

Authorities found 218 kilograms (480) pounds of amphetamine in a room the court said was used by the defendant. A smaller amount of the drug was seized in a bag and residence, the court statement said.

Another man, identified by the court as Lu Hanchang, was also sentenced to death for transporting and manufacturing illegal substances while the remaining three were given jail sentences ranging from seven years to life.

The sentencing of Ye and his abettors came just one day after another Chinese court sentenced Canadian Xu Weihong to death for making drugs.

China last year sentenced Canadians Robert Lloyd Schellenberg and Fan Wei to death on drug charges in separate cases. Both men have lodged appeals.

"Canada requests clemency for all Canadian citizens who have been sentenced to death, and calls on China to grant clemency to Mr Xu," said Canadian foreign ministry spokesman John Babcock.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said there was no connection between Xu's sentencing and current China-Canada relations.

"Death sentences for drug-related crimes that are extremely dangerous will help deter and prevent such crimes," Wang said. "China's judicial authorities handle cases involving criminals of different nationalities in accordance with law."

The next hearings, scheduled for August 17-21 in Vancouver, will discuss whether the attorney general's censure of privilege in declining to release some documents requested by Huawei relating to Meng's initial arrest is valid.

The next court hearing has been scheduled on April 2021.
