CORRECTED-UPDATE 1-Chinese court to rule as early as Wednesday on detained Canadian Spavor, says source

(Corrects year Spavor was charged to 2019 from "last year" in paragraph 2) 

  BEIJING, Aug 10 (Reuters) - A Chinese court is expected to rule as early as Wednesday in the case of detained Canadian Michael Spavor, according to a Canadian source directly familiar with the matter. 

  Spavor, a businessman, was charged with espionage in June 2019 along with fellow Canadian Michael Kovrig, at a time when relations between the two countries are at a very low level following Canada's arrest of a Huawei executive in late 2018.
