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

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, Ont., has remained steadfast in denying allegations that she spearheaded a plot to smuggle the son of the late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi 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.
