Ex-Canadian diplomat held in China not entitled to diplomatic immunity: FM
Former Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig, being held in China on suspicion of endangering national security, is not entitled to diplomatic immunity, the Asian nation's foreign ministry said on Monday. Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comment at a regular briefing in Beijing. Kovrig was one of two Canadians detained in China days after the Dec. 1 arrest of Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies Co, in Vancouver, at the request of the United States.
