Canadian instructor Sarah McIver who was detained in China has been launched

The Higher People's Court of the northeastern province of Liaoning says evidence showed it was possible Schellenberg played an "important role" as it ordered the court in the city of Dalian to try the case again. However, citizen was identified as Canadian teacher Sarah McIver.

McIver was the third Canadian to be detained by China following the December 1 arrest in Vancouver of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, but a Canadian official said there was no reason to believe that the woman's detention was linked to the earlier arrests.

Global Affairs Canada Spokesman Richard Walker confirmed on Friday that "a Canadian citizen, who was detained in China this month, has been released and has now returned to Canada". Chinese Foreign Ministry responded that China's justice department treats foreign drug traffickers equally and punishes them according to the law; the facts regarding the female drug trafficker have been proven and the amount of trafficked drugs is huge.

Since then, China has arrested Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor on charges of endangering national security in apparent retaliation.

China exercises a zero-tolerance policy towards drug trafficking, and has handed death sentences to foreigners found guilty of smuggling large quantities of illicit drugs.

Last week, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said McIver had received an "administrative penalty (for) illegal employment".

The other two are a Canadian diplomat on leave and a Canadian businessperson trading with North Korea.

Meng is out on bail pending an extradition hearing to the United States on charges of violating sanctions against Iran.

The official website of the court released a statement on Wednesday saying the court will accept the appeal of the defendant Schellenberg at 2pm local time Saturday.

Neither China nor Canada has drawn a direct connection between the Meng case and the cases of the two other Canadians. Meng has said she is innocent.
