Trudeau-nominated Senator Yuen Pau Woo tweeted in support of the release of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, calling for both Canada and China to recognize "the legitimacy of each other's judicial system."
Woo, who was once the President of a Vancouver-based think-tank dedicated on Canada-Asia relations, said that unless the BC high court decides "to release Ms. Meng, the final settlement of the case will be political."
"Everything that happened before this was just a long tug of war. This inference also applies to the detention cases of Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig," he said, saying that mutual recognition of legitimacy needed to be achieved with "solutions under their own systems."
Spavor and Kovrig, often called Canada's "Two Michaels," have been in Beijing prisons since 2018, in what many saw as a retaliatory arrest over Canada's detention of Wanzhou.
Woo has previously said he was "plugged" into the conversation to bring Spavor and Kovrig home.
