Chinese Tech Exec Faces 30 Years in Prison in U.S., Canadian Prosecutor Says

Huawei exec faces US fraud charges linked to Iran, court hears

Meng's father, the billionaire Ren Zhengfei, founded Huawei Technologies 1987 and established it in the southern China city of Shenzhen, across the border from Hong Kong.

If extradited to the United States, Ms Meng would face charges of conspiracy to defraud multiple financial institutions, the court heard, with a maximum sentence of 30 years for each charge.

A NY court issued an arrest warrant for Huawei Technologies' Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou on August 22, asking she be detained to stand trial for United States charges, Reuters said, citing documents released during her bail hearing in Canada on Friday.

Regardless of what violations might have occurred, it makes sense to go after Meng, CUNY'S Ming said.

Meng arrived in the packed Supreme Court of British Columbia on Friday as dozens of photographers jostled outside the building.

The Attorney General opposed Meng's release on bail.

According to the Washington Post, Weng was arrested while in transit from Hong Kong to Mexico.

Huawei Finance Chief Meng Wanzhou has been arrested in Canada at the request of the United States.

"At this point, it seems unlikely the arrest will derail the 90-day truce, but it makes an agreement after 90 days more hard".

"The Canadians could have said: 'She got away just as we were trying to catch her!' They didn't do that, partly, I think, because Trump has made it pretty clear that he can play rough-house politics with Canada, as well", Courtis said. Meng is accused to have previously insisted the two were separate companies.

Meng was detained on December 1 in Canada for allegedly selling US-made components to Iran and violating sanctions against the West Asian country. "There are others as well". But Trump issued a reprieve, perhaps partly because USA tech companies, major suppliers to ZTE, would also have been scorched.

The U.S. sees Huawei and smaller Chinese tech suppliers as possible fronts for Chinese spying and as commercial competitors. In August, citing a national security risk, the USA struck a blow against the policy, restricting the sale of advanced technologies to China, including semiconductors, air defence systems and satellite communication networks.

Trump to name former Fox anchor Heather Nauert as next United Nations ambassador
- President Trump will tweet Friday morning that he is nominating State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations , replacing outgoing official Nikki Haley, multiple sources tell Fox News.

"This action looks like another effort by the Trump administration to raise the stakes in the on-going state-to-state negotiations over industrial policy", he told Al Jazeera.

The Chinese firm has recently faced scrutiny, mainly in Western states.

Canadian prosecutor John Gibb-Carsley said that the telecoms giant used a subsidiary, Hong Kong-based firm Skycom, to do business with Iran, bypassing United States sanctions.

The movement now appears to be reaching some sort of crescendo, with four of the Five Eyes banning Huawei, and Canada reportedly under pressure to add its name to the list.

Martin said two properties in Vancouver worth a total of $14 million could be put up for bail, and electronic monitoring and surveillance-based security could be used, although he said neither would be necessary.

As details of American allegations against a Chinese executive were revealed Friday in a Vancouver court, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Canada's ambassador in Beijing had briefed the Chinese foreign ministry on her arrest. "And we may see (Chinese retaliation), which will embitter relations".
