Huawei C.F.O. Is Arrested in Canada for Extradition to the U.S.

"SAN FRANCISCO — A top executive and daughter of the founder of the Chinese tech giant Huawei was arrested on Saturday in Canada at the request of the United States, in a move likely to escalate tensions between the two countries at a delicate moment.

"The arrest of Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer, unfolded on the same night that President Trump and President Xi Jinping of China dined together in Buenos Aires and agreed to a 90-day trade truce.

"The two countries are set to begin tense negotiations in hopes of ending a trade war that has been pummeling both economies...."

The next front in Trump's trade war?

What happens if China replies in kind by arresting a prominent US capitalist?

"'The arrest of a family member linked to Huawei’s founder indicates how the tension between the two sides is rapidly escalating,' said T.J. Pempel, a professor of political science at the University of California, Berkeley, who specializes in East Asian politics and economy."

Why was she arrested?

"but did not give a reason for what prompted the arrest. He added that a publication ban requested by Ms. Meng prevented him from providing any further details."

Wtf, why even publish the shit then? I hope they sue the Times.

I agree. If they don't want to tell why she was arrested why should anyone be interested??

Of course GP is a Trump hater so he's hoping her arrest has something to do with Trump and his policies.

Indeed.

"Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican of Nebraska, linked the arrest to the American sanctions against Iran.

"Mr. Sasse said China had been 'working to creatively undermine our national security interests, and the United States and our allies can’t sit on the sidelines.'

"He added that 'Americans are grateful that our Canadian partners have arrested the chief financial officer of a giant Chinese telecom company for breaking U.S. sanctions against Iran.'"

China: Huawei arrest is rights abuse

China has urged the US and Canada to "clarify" the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer.

The daughter of the founder of the Chinese telecoms giant was arrested in Vancouver on 1 December and could face extradition to the US.

Details of the arrest have not been released but the US has been investigating Huawei over possible violation of sanctions against Iran.

China demanded her release, saying her detention was possibly a rights abuse.

Huawei is one of the largest telecommunications equipment and services providers in the world, recently passing Apple to become the second-biggest smartphone maker after Samsung.

Ms Meng has sought a publication ban on the details of the arrest, which has been granted by the courts. Huawei said it had little information about the charges and was "not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms Meng".

European shares hit a two-year low and indexes across Asia dropped sharply following the arrest.

Ok now I get it


Why is Huawei a concern to the West?
Some Western governments fear Beijing will gain access to fifth-generation (5G) mobile and other communications networks through Huawei and expand its spying ability, although the firm insists there is no government control.

Imagine if it was Steve Jobs's daughter who was just arrested in China.

The (all knowing) Market appears to be reacting badly.

Possibly that CFO of a powerful company has found herself on the wrong side of a Trade War?

"What tariffs are in place?

"So far, the US has imposed three rounds of tariffs on Chinese goods, totalling more than $250bn (£191.9bn). They cover a wide range of consumer and industrial items including handbags, rice and railway equipment."

Wtf, why even publish the shit then? I hope they sue the Times.
They are doing business with places that have sanctions against them (Iran, Syria, Cuba). This chick is in big trouble and so is her fathers company. They are the 3rd largest cellphone company in the world and if they are found guilty of wrongdoing, the US will cut them off from the American electronic components they need for their phones.

Quick someone introduce her to Rachel Maddow. What a cute couple, huh? For sure a double-sided dildo won’t last long with these two humping away.

This seems to be more like kidnapping. She is not a American citizen so she is not subject to American law unless she violates a American law in America. It seems that Trump is bent on starting a war.

Bolton didn't know about Huawei CFO's arrest during Trump, Xi meeting, spokesperson says

"Bolton didn't know about Huawei CFO's arrest during Trump, Xi meeting, spokesperson says...."

"Meng was detained by Canadian authorities in Vancouver on Dec. 1 — the same day Mr. Trump met with China's leader. Bolton's spokesperson said the arrest transpired roughly around the same time the president was meeting with the Chinese delegation in Buenos Aires, and that Bolton was briefed on the issue after returning to Washington earlier this week.

"China demanded on Thursday that Canadian authorities release Meng, who faces possible extradition to the U.S.

"The Chinese embassy in Ottawa said Meng's human rights were being violated and demanded her immediate release.

"Canadian Justice Department spokesman Ian McLeod confirmed her arrest on Wednesday, but said he could not provide further details on the case due to a publication ban imposed at Meng's request. She has a bail hearing on Friday, he said.

"Huawei issued a statement saying Meng was changing flights in Canada when she was detained 'on behalf of the United States of America' to face 'unspecified charges' in New York. 'The company has been provided very little information regarding the charges and is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms. Meng,' the statement said. 'The company believes the Canadian and U.S. legal systems will ultimately reach a just conclusion.'"

If it was unilateral US sanctions on Iran that triggered this arrest, it does sound more like a kidnapping or maybe just another of Trump's many diversions?
