China Officially Charges Two Detained Canadians With Espionage

More than 18 months have passed since Michael Kovrig, a former Canadian diplomat working for an NGO on the mainland, and Michael Spavor, a Canadian businessman specializing in running novelty tours to North Korea, were abruptly arrested by police in China and informed they were under investigation (in China, police can take you into custody before the investigation even begins) for threatening China's national security - an extremely serious charge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is pretty simple, when looking at the bigger picture, about which which the following story's headline, dateline 27 May, 2020, speaks volumes: Extradition of Huawei Executive Clears a Major Legal Hurdle in Canada

The article goes on to state: "A Vancouver court ruled that fraud charges against Meng Wanzhou in the United States would constitute a crime in Canada, opening the way for her extradition."

These guys are merely "bargaining chips" for the Chinese to use to get Meng Wanzou back from Canada to China before she is extradited to the United States; however, the timing here is very much working against the Chinese government's desire to get this woman repatriated before standing trial in the US.
