On Monday, Chinese authorities accused two Canadians who have been detained since December of being spies. This news comes as Canada proceeds with a U.S. extradition request for Huawei's CFO Meng Wanzhou.

Kevin and Julia Garratt know what it's like to live in Chinese custody under suspicion of espionage.
