Lawyers for federal government expected to present their arguments in extradition trial of Meng Wanzhou

Lawyers for the federal government are preparing to present their side of the story at the extradition trial of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou.

Her lawyers are just wrapping up their arguments in BC Supreme Court in Vancouver regarding the admissibility of evidence at Meng's trial.

They contend proceedings against Meng should be tossed on the grounds that the United States misled Canadian officials in summarizing the case against her, leading to her arrest in Vancouver in December 2018.

Meng and Huawei deny allegations they attempted to mislead a bank, potentially causing it to violate US trade sanctions against Iran.
