Chinese Court Sentences Canadian National to Death for Drug Crimes in Retrial – The Wall Street Journal

DALIAN, China—A Chinese court ordered the death penalty for a Canadian national after convicting him in a hurried retrial that legal experts called an attempt by Beijing to up its leverage over Ottawa for the arrest of a prominent Chinese executive.

The decision by the Intermediate People’s Court in this seaside city came after a one-day retrial that found Canadian Robert Schellenberg guilty of participating in an international drug ring.
