U.S. will seek extradition of Huawei CFO from Canada

WASHINGTON/DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday it will pursue the extradition of the chief financial officer of China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd’s, arrested in Canada in December, Reuters reported.

The United States has accused Meng Wanzhou of misrepresenting the company’s links to a firm that tried to sell equipment to Iran despite U.S. sanctions. The arrest soured ties between Canada and China, which subsequently detained two Canadians and sentenced a third to death.

The U.S. statement came a day after a report that Canada’s ambassador to the United States said his government was told Washington planned to proceed.

“We will continue to pursue the extradition of defendant Ms. Meng Wanzhou, and will meet all deadlines set by the U.S.-Canada Extradition Treaty,” Justice Department spokesman Marc Raimondi said in a statement.

“We greatly appreciate Canada’s continuing support of our mutual efforts to enforce the rule of law.”

Huawei Chairman Liang Hua told media at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday that the company was following the issue closely and wanted a quick resolution of the case, but had no direct contact with authorities.
