Chinese irony: Huawei chief screams about her ‘civil rights’

Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s CFO, has now sued Canada’s government for “serious breaches” of her civil rights in arresting her at Vancouver airport last year. 

Following Meng’s arrest, the Chinese government retaliated by arresting two Canadian citizens on “suspicion they were endangering national security” – a charge probably just conjured up for the occasion.

I’d like to ask China expert and sympathiser KhunPrasan Stianrapapongs if there is some kind of judicial channel in China that the two Canadians could use to help get themselves out of trouble?

Meanwhile it baffles me that Meng even knows the phrase “civil rights”.
