The Jiangmen Intermediate People's Court in southern Guangdong Province sentenced 11 people who produced more than 63 kilograms of methamphetamine, an illegal drug.
Among them were an American and four Mexicans, all of whom were sentenced to life imprisonment or a two-year suspended sentence. The court's statement did not clearly indicate which person had been sentenced to what sentence and did not give their full name.
The Canadian sentenced to death was identified as "Fan Wei", but it was unclear if this was his legal name. A person identified as Wu Ziping, whose nationality has not been specified, was also sentenced to death.
The sentence is likely to severely strain China-Canada relations, which have deteriorated since Huawei's arrest at the request of the United States last December. Since then, China has arrested two Canadians and suspended some Canadian exports in apparent retaliation.
According to the court, Fan Wei and Wu Ziping conspired to manufacture and sell drugs in 2012 and invited others – described as "drug manufacturing technicians" – on board. According to the court, the group created a "hideout" in Taishan City, Guangdong, where it produced and sold more than 63 kilograms of methamphetamine and 365.9 grams of dimethylamphetamine.
A court employee contacted by telephone refused to give more details about the case.
In another case of drug trafficking, China sentenced Canadian Robert Lloyd Schellenberg to death in January, a month after Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were arrested for vague allegations of national security. The move was widely seen as a punishment for Canada's arrest of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of China's Huawei telecommunications company.
China also suspended the licenses of two major Canadian canola exporters, alleging that officials had discovered dangerous organisms in canola seed shipments.
