China Court Orders Retrial For Canadian Charged With Drug Smuggling

According to CNN, a Chinese court ordered a retrial on Saturday in a case involving a Canadian convicted of drug smuggling after prosecutors claimed new evidence.

The case is the latest to test relations between Ottawa and Beijing following the detention of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou earlier this month in Canada.

Prosecutors insisted that Canadian Robert Lloyd Schellenber had been given a lenient punishment in the first trial that was "obviously inappropriate" with the latest evidence.
