TORONTO — A Canadian woman who spent the past 18-months languishing in a Mexican prison has come home.

Cyndy Vanier arrived quietly at Toronto’s Pearson Airport Saturday night where she was greeted by family and friends.

Reporters were also there, but she declined to speak with the media.

Vanier, 52, was released Friday after a Mexican court upheld her appeal.

The native of Mount Forest, Ontario, has remained steadfast in denying allegations that she spearheaded a plot to smuggle the son of the late Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi into Mexico.

Vanier has insisted her only connection to Libya was contract work she did for SNC Lavalin, a Montreal-based engineering giant with projects in that north African country.
