Extradition hearing for Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou begins today in Vancouver

BY , Jan 20, 2020 4:31 PM - REPORT AN ERRORLAST UPDATED ON Apr 24, 2020 3:31 PM

All eyes will be on BC Supreme Court today as an extradition hearing for arrested Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou begins.

The United States is seeking Meng's extradition on fraud charges linked to the alleged violation of sanctions against Iran.

The hearing in Vancouver will consider the legal test of double criminality, meaning that if the allegations are also a crime in Canada then she should be extradited to the US.

Meng denies the allegations and her arrest has soured relations between Canada and China.
