Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has announced that Canadian citizens Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. who had been in custody in China, were flying back home. Beijing alleged the men were spies hunting for China’s state secrets.

“About 12 minutes ago, the aircraft carrying Michael Kovrig and Micheal Spavor left Chinese airspace and they are on the way home,” Trudeau announced in a televised statement late on Friday.

The announcement came hours after Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was released from Canadian custody after striking a deal with the US prosecution. 

The China-bound plane carrying Meng as well as the one carrying the two Canadians apparently departed from their respective airports around the same time.

Trudeau revealed that Kovrig and Spavor boarded the plane about 7:30pm Ottawa time (23:30 GMT), while Meng’s Air China aircraft reportedly took off from a Vancouver International Airport at around 4:35pm local time (23:35 GMT).
