Lawyers for Meng claim U.S. misled B.C. court

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 05 Aug, 2021 09:37 AM
  • Lawyers for Meng claim U.S. misled B.C. court

Lawyers for Huawei's chief financial officer say the United States has acted in bad faith in the extradition process of Meng Wanzhou and the British Columbia Supreme Court should stay proceedings against her.

In the documents presented to the court yesterday, her lawyers claim the United States mischaracterized and omitted evidence to establish a case of fraud when requesting the extradition of Meng from Canada.

The documents say misleading evidence undermines both the fairness of the extradition hearing and the integrity of the judicial system.

Lawyers for the attorney general are expected to answer to the abuse of process claims in the coming days, while the actual extradition hearing is scheduled for later this month.

Meng is accused of misrepresenting Huawei's relationship with technologies firm Skycom during a 2013 meeting with HSBC, putting the bank at risk of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran — charges that both she and Huawei deny.

Meng was arrested in 2018 and is out on bail living in one of her Vancouver homes.
