Chinese Embassy Spokesperson's Responding to Australian Side's Remarks on the Sentencing of Relevant Canadian Citizens
2021/08/12

We firmly oppose and do not accept the false remarks by the Australian side on the sentencing of relevant Canadian citizens. Canadian citizen Robert Schellenberg was involved in organized international drug trafficking, Michael Spavor is convicted of spying and illegally providing state secrets abroad. The Chinese judiciary handled the cases in strict accordance with the law, delivered fair verdicts and fully guaranteed their legitimate rights and interests. We urge the Australian side to respect China’s judicial sovereignty and refrain from interfering in any form in Chinese judicial authorities’ lawful handling of the cases.
