A lawyer representing Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou has accused an RCMP officer of lying about Meng's arrest nearly two years ago at Vancouver International Airport.

Richard Peck made the accusation in BC Supreme Court this morning as proceedings continue at Meng's extradition trial.

Peck says he does not believe Constable Winston Yep was being honest when he testified why Meng was not immediately arrested and instead was questioned by border services officials for three hours before being taken into custody.

Meng is seeking to have her case thrown out, arguing she was a victim of abuse of process when she was arrested by Canadian officials at the request of US authorities who want her to face fraud charges in that country.
