Canada threatened over Huawei arrest

ZTE ZMAX 2 Review

-China trade tensions and roiled financial markets.

Is uncertainty over US trade talks with China casting a shadow over what has been a bright spot for the Trump administration?

The hearing on whether to grant her release on bail was due to resume later Monday. Meng and Huawei are also accused of misleading American banks about its business dealings in Iran. The hearing continues Monday.

Huawei, the world's biggest supplier of telecoms network equipment and second biggest smartphone seller, did not offer an immediate comment on the court documents.

"The company has been provided very little information regarding the charges, and is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms Meng".

Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng summoned USA ambassador Terry Branstad a day after calling in Canadian envoy John McCallum to protest Meng's arrest, at the U.S.'s behest, at the Vancouver airport on December 1.

"The actions of the USA seriously violated the lawful and legitimate rights of the Chinese citizen, and by their nature were extremely nasty", Le told Branstad.

Canadian prosecutor John Gibb-Carsley said in court that a warrant had been issued for Meng's arrest in New York Aug. 22.

Le called the United States to "immediately correct its wrong actions" and said it would take further steps based on Washington's response.

Over the weekend, China summoned both the Canadian and US ambassador to protest Meng's detention.

Ms Meng, 46, faces USA accusations that she covered up her company's links to a firm that tried to sell equipment to Iran despite sanctions, a Canadian prosecutor said on Friday, arguing against giving her bail while she awaits extradition to the United States.

The Xinhua report quoted Mr Le as calling Ms Meng's detention "extremely egregious" and demanded the USA vacate an order for her arrest. Ltd, which Huawei has described as one of its "major local partners" in Iran.

Huawei is the world's largest supplier of telecommunications network equipment and second-biggest maker of smartphones, with revenue of about $92 billion past year.

Huawei is now China's largest technology company by employees, with more than 180,000 staff and revenue of $93 billion in 2017.

On its Twitter feed, Huawei last week said it was unaware of any wrongdoing by Meng.

A Canadian prosecutor asked a court Friday to reject Meng's bail request.

"He didn't know", Kudlow said.

Meng is accused of misrepresenting Huawei's connection with Skycom to several banks involved in the case, leading to one bank clearing more than $100 million dollars worth of transactions. He noted that some Skycom workers used Huawei email addresses and employees in Iran used a different set of stationary depending on whether they were doing Huawei or Skycom work.

A federal Justice Department lawyer had argued that Meng's vast resources and lack of meaningful connection to Canada made her a flight risk, while Meng's defence lawyer said she would do no such thing to prevent humiliation to her family.

Companies are barred from using the United States financial system to funnel goods and services to sanctioned entities.

"We have to understand Chinese companies are not like American companies. OK".

Meng's arrest "shouldn't really have much of an impact" on the talks, Lighthizer told CBS's "Face the Nation", although he conceded that the Chinese side might see it that way. Martin, her lawyer, said she would never breach a court order on bail because that would embarrass her father and China.
