    China - Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou loses bid for freedom

    This could get interesting, can you imagine if China arrested a major US business exec and held them indefinitely?
    Being such a high-profile figure in China's leading telecom firm makes her valuable for intelligence gathering for the US.

    China's really getting it from all angles right now.

    Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou loses bid for freedom as Canadian judge decides US extradition case must continue

    Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou has lost a bid to have the extradition case against her thrown out, with a Canadian judge instead ruling on Wednesday that the US charges against her meet a key condition and the hearings must continue.

    Justice Heather Holmes of British Columbia Supreme Court ruled that the fraud charges against Meng satisfied the extradition requirement of “double criminality”, which demands that suspects be accused of something that would constitute a crime in Canada as well as in the requesting country.

    “On the question of law posed, I conclude that, as a matter of law, the double criminality requirement for extradition is capable of being met in this case,” Associate Chief Justice Holmes wrote in her judgment.
    Meng’s lawyers will continue to fight against her extradition on other grounds.

    US prosecutors want Meng extradited from Canada to face trial in New York. Canadian police, acting at the request of US authorities, arrested her at Vancouver’s airport on December 1, 2018.

    The arrest set off a diplomatic firestorm amid the US-China trade war and sent Beijing’s relations with Ottawa plummeting. Meng is accused of defrauding HSBC bank by deceiving an executive in Hong Kong about Huawei’s alleged business dealings in Iran, a breach of US sanctions.

    Meng’s lawyers had tried to have the extradition case dismissed by arguing that the fraud charges were in fact a “dressed up” accusation that Meng had broken US sanctions, which is not a crime in Canada.

    But Holmes said that the “essence” of Meng’s alleged wrongful conduct “is the making of intentionally false statements in the banker client relationship that put HSBC at risk”.

    “The US sanctions are part of the state of affairs necessary to explain how HSBC was at risk, but they are not themselves an intrinsic part of the conduct,” wrote Holmes.

    “For this reason, I cannot agree with Ms Meng that to refer to US sanctions in order to understand the risk to HSBC is to allow the essence of the conduct to be defined by foreign law. Canada’s laws determine whether the alleged conduct, in its essence, amounts to fraud.”

    Meng will remain under partial house arrest in Vancouver, where she lives in a C$13.6 million (US$9.9 million) mansion on C$10 million bail.

    Holmes said that the double criminality analysis of Meng’s lawyers “would seriously limit Canada’s ability to fulfil its international obligations in the extradition context” regarding economic crimes, noting that “the offence of fraud has a vast potential scope”.

    I did too, it seemed like Canada was appearing a little sympathetic towards her case. She's definitely headed to America now, I wonder if they are trying to get her to flip on China in exchange for her freedom, who knows. I'm sure China isn't happy that her electronics were confiscated.
