Canada says Huawei CFO can be Extradited to the US
March 2 , 2019
Canada has reportedly said that Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou can be extradited to the US. However, it also said that the final decision on the matter of extradition will be taken by the court. Huawei’s chief executive was arrested by Canada back in December 2018 on the request of the USA, closest ally of Canada. Reports say that the United States want Meng Wanzhou to stand trial on multiple charges including alleged Iran sanction violations as well as fraud. However, China has said that the court case against Huawei CFO is a blatant abuse of the Canada-US bilateral extradition treaty. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Kang went on to say that the court hearing on the issue of extradition of Meng Wanzhou is completely a “political incident”.
