Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou Granted Move to Larger Home, Future Court Dates Set

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announces new criminal charges against Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei at the Department of Justice Jan. 28 2019 in Washington

Lawyer Scott Fenton claimed that comments made by US President Donald Trump also suggested that the case against his client is politically motivated, hence defence would seek a stay in proceeding, the report said.

Meng was arrested at Vancouver International Airport on December 1 at the request of USA authorities.

In response, Canada has maintained it is following the rule of law in Meng's case, as set out by its extradition treaty with the United States.

A separate civil lawsuit launched by Ms. Meng alleges these border agents questioned her for three hours without advising her of her rights and unlawfully searched her electronic devices - including two cellphones, an iPad and a personal computer - before nearby Mounties arrested her. They also plan to question "double criminality", disputing that what the USA alleges she did - lied to banks to trick them into conducting transactions for Huawei that may have violated US sanctions - constitutes a crime in Canada. "Her U.S. ordered arrest was unlawful abuse of process, one guided by political considerations and tactics, not by the rule of law", Howes said.

Meng's arrest was the catalyst for tensions between Canada and the Chinese regime, who detained two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, in China shortly after Meng's arrest.

Meng was released on bail in mid-December in Vancouver, where she owns two residences, on a Can$10 million bond.

The U.S. accuses her of tricking banks, including HSBC Holdings Plc, into conducting transactions that potentially violated U.S. sanctions on Iran.

Speaking in Beijing on Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang again demanded Meng's release and return to China.

The argument was made by Meng Wanzhou's defense lawyers at the British Columbia Supreme Court on Wednesday, a hearing at which Meng was present.

The bank and wire fraud charges do not meet that criteria because Meng is accused of misrepresenting HSBC to engage in transactions that violate US sanctions laws, the lawyers said. Justice Department officials have insisted the case has nothing to do with the U.S.

Kevin Durant to miss remainder of Rockets series with mild calf strain
Should the Warriors advance, that same timetable would see him return right around Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Kerr said the coaching staff would use time on the flight to Texas on Thursday to reconfigure the rotation without Durant.

"Ms. Meng will apply to the court, asking the RCMP, CBSA, and DOJ to disclose more evidence on this matter", said Huawei.

Her arrest at the Vancouver airport set off a diplomatic furor that has had led to the worst relations between Canada and China since the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989.

A top Chinese telecom executive whose arrest in Canada on a USA warrant triggered a bitter diplomatic row vowed Wednesday to vigorously fight extradition to the US.

China is also blocking imports of Canadian canola seed.

"Extradition proceedings are not trials; they are meant to be expeditious procedures to determine whether a trial should be held", Mr. Gibb-Carsley stated, citing a precedent-setting ruling.

The disclosure application hearing is scheduled to begin September 23.

Ottawa has pressed Washington - which is locked in a trade dispute with China - to step up its pressure on behalf of the detained Canadians.

She arrived at court, wearing an elegant full-length black and gray weave-pattern dress, with the ankle monitor prominently visible.

As well, the judge allowed a surety substitution, as one of Meng's sureties who had put up their house as part of her bail has to sell their home.
