CFO of Chinese telecom giant Huawei Tech arrested in Canada - to be extradited to the US

whoa! What is this? Big time espionage? Too many parking tickets perhaps? Pretty mysterious so far...

Canadian authorities said Wednesday that they have arrested the chief financial officer of China's Huawei Technologies for possible extradition to the United States. Justice Department spokesman Ian McLeod said Meng Wanzhou was detained in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday.

McLeod said a publication ban had been imposed in the case and he could not provide further details. The ban was sought by Meng, who has a bail hearing Friday, he said.

Huawei issued a statement saying Meng was changing flights in Canada when she was detained "on behalf of the United States of America" to face "unspecified charges" in New York.

"The company has been provided very little information regarding the charges and is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms. Meng," the statement said. "The company believes the Canadian and U.S. legal systems will ultimately reach a just conclusion."

Huawei said it complies with all laws and rules where it operates, including export controls and sanctions of the United Nations, the U.S. and European Union.

The Chinese Embassy in Ottawa said her human rights were violated and demanded her immediate release.

"At the request of the U.S. side, the Canadian side arrested a Chinese citizen not violating any American or Canadian law. The Chinese side firmly opposes and strongly protests over such kind of actions which seriously harmed the human rights of the victim," the statement said.

A U.S. Justice Department spokesman declined to comment.

Those are sanctions that need to be violated.

I just cannot envision any conscious and percipient mind effecting this action on a straight up and up, it is so utterly imbecilic...

Apparently the warrant was issued by a Federal Judge in New York in August after the US Attorney there filed the complaint.

Despite reports by NBC, CNN, & others; the Federal Indictments are not for violations of "Iran Sanctions". They are for Bank Fraud and Conspiracy to Defraud!

The Telegraph (UK) -
Huawei's chief financial officer faces charges over an alleged conspiracy to defraud banking institutions.
Meng Wanzhou, 46, was arrested in Canada last week and is wanted in the US over "fraud offences", a Vancouver court heard during a bail hearing on Friday.
Canadian prosecutor John Gibb-Carsley said that the telecoms giant used a subsidiary, Hong Kong-based firm Skycom, to do business with Iran, bypassing US sanctions.
Ms Meng allegedly misled bankers by assuring them that Skycom and Huawei were separate companies, after links between them were reported by Reuters in 2013. This put the banks at risk of breaching sanctions. "SkyCom is Huawei", he told the court.
