After more than 18 months in detention without access to lawyers, Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor finally were charged on Friday. The prosecutor’s office in Beijing charged Kovrig, a former diplomat, with spying to obtain state secrets and intelligence. Spavor, a businessman who arranged travel to North Korea, faced charges in the border city of Dandong for spying for a foreign entity and illegally providing state secrets.
