Re: /Reaches for the popcorn bowl...

In more than one way than you think.

There is some refresh on the info in the article:

1. She was arrested on the 1st. 5 days earlier. China knew immediately and a 5 days quiet spat has failed to resolve this.

2. She is probably a dual citizen with her second citizenship being CANADIAN. Hence - the Vancouver connection.

This calls for some additional popcorn deliveries and it looks like the wholesalers are out of stock.

If a person can be arrested on the mere suspicion of sanction busting based on an American request, what about people under sanctions themselves.

In fact, some outfits have suggested this is a dress rehearsal for bigger fish. Abramovich, Vexelberg and co may need to pay some extra attention exactly where they park their boats in the incoming year.
