The Spanish Government also expresses its concern regarding the arrest in the People's Republic of China of the Canadian citizens Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor last December. It supports the efforts of the Government of Canada to ensure that they will receive fair, transparent and impartial treatment in their respective legal processes, and trusts that diplomatic channels can help find a satisfactory solution that respects the principle of legality.
