South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Chinese netizens swoon over hero’s return and husband’s greeting for Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou” – below is their description.

Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer, was greeted by a hero’s welcome as she landed in the Chinese city of Shenzhen on September 25, 2021. The previous day her legal team had struck a deal with US prosecutors to end a high-profile fraud case that saw her detained in Canada for nearly three years. Her husband was among about 100 people gathered on the airport tarmac, and their reunion prompted thousands of heartfelt reactions on Chinese social media. Meanwhile, Canadians Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig returned to Canada after being released from detention in China soon after Washington dropped its extradition request for Meng, in what some political analysts described as Beijing’s use of “hostage diplomacy”.
