Huawei requests that its CFO not be extradited to the United States

The team of lawyers in charge of defending Huawei’s chief financial officer, Ming Wanguo, sent an invitation to the Canadian court concerned with the case, renewing its request not to extradite the defendant to the United States of America in accordance with the evidence and evidence presented to the court related to the reliability and credibility of the information on which the United States relied and on which the extradition request was based. .

Meng has returned to hearings in Canadian court in recent weeks regarding her extradition case to the United States, as legal arguments that have lasted for more than two years are drawing to a close.

Ming was arrested in December 2018 in Vancouver International Airport based on a US arrest warrant Accused of misleading HSBC about Huawei’s business dealings in Iran and causing the bank to violate US sanctions.

The latest evidence on which the defense team relied in its pleadings, was that the documents obtained from HSBC to convict the defendant, “Ming” lack credibility, are not related to reality and actually deny Ming’s deception by deceiving the bank, as the evidence confirms the knowledge of the officials. The bank’s executives are aware of the risks of the aforementioned transactions and agree to continue working with Huawei.

The hearings, which will continue until August 20, will focus on the third chapter of Meng’s defense team’s arguments, especially regarding the US prosecutors’ misrepresentation of the case in the extradition request submitted in Canada.

The defense team described the documents provided by the US authorities as unreliable and lacking clarity. Meng’s lawyer also asserts that the US abused “good faith” in the extradition request by misleading the Canadian judicial system about the accuracy of the criminal allegations against Meng.
