BEIJING (AP) — A pair of American siblings have returned home after China lifted an exit ban following Canada’s release of a top Chinese tech executive wanted in the U.S. on fraud charges. A State Department spokesperson said Cynthia and Victor Liu returned to the U.S. on Sunday after consular staff in Shanghai helped facilitate their departure. The spokesperson added that the U.S. would continue to “advocate on behalf of all American citizens in (China) subject to arbitrary detention and coercive exit bans.” A pair of Canadians held in China were also permitted to leave after Canada released Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou.
