(E)The suit also claims Canada Border Service Agency agents seized her electronic devices, (e) obtained passwords and unlawfully viewed the contents and intentionally failed to adviser her of the true reasons for her detention. The suit said only after three hours was she told she was under arrest and had right to counsel.

(D)Meng has been released on bail and is living in Vancouver awaiting extradition proceedings.

PARA 3: On Friday, Canadian justice department officials gave the go-ahead for her (7)_________proceedings to begin. Meng was due in court on Wednesday to set a date for the proceedings to start. It could be several months or even years before her case is resolved. Meng’s arrest set off a diplomatic furore and severely strained Canadian relations with China.

PARA 4: A Chinese court also sentenced a Canadian to death in a sudden retrial, overturning a 15-year prison term handed down earlier.

PARA 5: Julian Ku, senior associate dean for academic affairs at Hofstra Law, noted the civil action is separate and apart from Meng’s extradition proceeding.

Lynette Ong, an associate professor of political science at the University of Toronto who focuses on China, quipped that the detained Canadians should take Beijing to court for violation of basic human rights, taking a leaf from the Meng lawsuit. “The (10) _______of their human rights is so much graver than violation of her constitutional rights,” Ong said. “But that’s not even possible for them. The fact that they were denied a lawyer in the first place means they are not entitled to any justice.”
