LILLEY: Deal for Meng may not mean a trip home for Kovrig and Spavor


This coming Thursday will mark two years since Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were detained, kidnapped really, by Chinese authorities. Two years and still no closer to coming home even as the reason they were detained may soon be resolved. As originally reported in the Wall Street Journal, Meng Wanzhou, the Huawei chief financial officer, may be close to striking a deferred prosecution agreement with the United States Department of Justice. Talks have been going on for some time and although Meng has rejected the most recent offer, negotiations continue. So now that Meng might be freed, does that mean Kovrig and Spavor would be next? Not necessarily.
