We can do both: Canadian detainee’s wife disappointed after Trudeau rejects ‘prisoner swap’

Canadian detainee's wife disappointed after Trudeau rejects 'prisoner swap'

The wife of one of the two detained Canadians in China has expressed her disappointment over the Canadian Prime Minister’s refusal to think about the ‘prisoner swap’.

Few days in the past, a group of 19 distinguished members, together with former cabinet ministers and diplomats, wrote a letter urging Trudeau to halt the extradition proceedings in opposition to Meng, with a hope that two detained residents will lastly be let free by China.

However, Trudeau rejected the request and mentioned, “(This) would endanger the thousands and thousands of Canadians who reside and journey abroad every single yr. We can’t enable political pressures or random arrests of Canadian residents to affect the functioning of our justice system.”

Now, in an interview with a local media network, Michael Kovrig’s wife, Vina Nadjibulla, has expressed disappointment over the shortage of efforts from the Canadian authorities.

“We can do both,” she mentioned. ‘We protect Canadian people’s in the future.’ Both have to be on the table, and the government has the responsibility to do both,” she mentioned.

While she is disappointed by Trudeau, she expressed aid that lastly after so long there may be a minimum of an open debate on this matter, as an alternative of the matter staying behind closed doorways.

Her assertion has come a day after China criticized Canadian authorities for its “irresponsible” statements and requested the Canadian authorities to place a cease to its “Megaphone Diplomacy”.
