Huawei CFO Meng's lawyers seek stay on USA extradition

Meng Wanzhou

They said her arrest was an abuse of process and that her rights were violated when she was detained late a year ago, and that US President Donald Trump's "corrosive" comments were evidence that the case was politically motivated.

The appeal comes against the backdrop of Beijing's anger over the December arrest of Meng Wanzhou, a senior executive at Chinese tech giant Huawei, who faces a United States extradition hearing in Canada on Wednesday.

"It's our submission that those statements directly in relation to the Meng case are intimidating and corrosive of the rule of law", Fenton said, adding they should disentitle the US from being able to seek extradition.

Since her arrest in December, Trump has suggested intervening in the case if it would help seal a trade deal with Beijing.

Canadian police arrested Meng on a US warrant in December.

Meng is accused of lying to banks about the company's dealings with Iran in violation of USA trade sanctions.

As well as cars, the weapon could also be used on buildings which could collapse and kill others if hit by an explosion. Another victim was Jamal al-Badawi, the accused mastermind behind the deadly bombing in 2000 of the USS Cole .


Huawei said in a statement on Wednesday that the criminal case against Meng is based on allegations that are simply not true, adding that the US -ordered arrest was "guided by political considerations and tactics, not by the rule of law".

Chinese police detained the two Canadian citizens after Meng's arrest.

In B.C. Supreme Court on Wednesday, the lawyers successfully delayed formal extradition proceedings until after a separate hearing at the end of September determines whether more evidence must be disclosed by the prosecution.

The appearance comes amid growing tensions between Canada and China over the diplomatic row.

Beijing in March vowed to continue its support for Huawei and Meng in "seeking legal redress to protect their own interests and refusing to be victimized like silent lambs". The court has previously heard that Meng met with HSBC.

The actions against Meng led to serious and repeated violations of her rights, the statement said.

Meng's defense team also said Wednesday there is no evidence that she lied to a Huawei bank about its relationship with Skycom and that she can not be extradited because the conduct at issue would not be criminal in Canada.

The actions directed in part by the Federal Bureau of Investigation led to "serious and repeated" violations of Meng's rights under the charter, he said. The Canadian embassy did not reply to a request for comment. It added: "Third, it was revealed that the arrest of Ms. Meng violated a core principle of the Canada - US Extradition Treaty and Canadian extradition law - because the allegation she faces is not a crime in Canada".

Skycom are said to be a Hong Kong-based tech company that reportedly tried to sell United States equipment to Iran, despite U.S. and European Union sanctions prohibiting them from doing so.

Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada last December at the request of U.S. authorities who claimed she meant to defraud multiple financial institutions.

Trade issues have also become strained with China blocking imports of Canadian pork and canola. "Currently, large numbers of people go there, sometimes approach the house". She smiled and spoke with her interpreter before the judge arrived.
