In April, it was reported they were being interrogated for between six to eight hours a day, and were sometimes subject to 24-hour artificial lighting.

And last month, Canada's new foreign affairs minister told his Chinese counterpart the two men's case was his "absolute priority".

She also thanked her supporters, "the kindness of people here in Canada", and "the kindness of the correctional officers and inmates at the Alouette Correctional Center for Women" where she was detained.

Meng's extradition trial is scheduled to start in January.
