VANCOUVER/TORONTO (Reuters) – Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou arrived at a Canada courtroom on Monday for the first of five days of witness testimony, the latest round of hearings as Canada seeks to extradite her to the United States on charges of bank fraud.
The five days of hearings will focus on alleged abuses of process committed by Canadian and U.S. authorities during Meng’s December 2018 arrest at Vancouver International Airport.
Meng, 48, is charged by the United States with bank fraud for allegedly misleading HSBC about Huawei’s business dealings in Iran, causing the bank to break U.S. sanction laws.
She denies the charges and is fighting extradition from under house arrest in Vancouver.
