US Justice Department Drops The Hammer On Huawei

From the “this escalated quickly” file, comes the announcement that The United States Department of Justice has announced it plans to seek extradition of arrested Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou who is out on bail in Vancouver.

A 13-count indictment filed in New York City against Huawei, two of its affiliated firms, and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, accuses Huawei and an affiliate of bank fraud and wire fraud. The company is also charged with violating U.S. sanctions on Iran and conspiring to obstruct justice related to the investigation.

Canadian officials arrested Meng on a U.S. warrant Dec. 1. She has been detained in Vancouver since then.

This is sure to make life difficult for Canada as China is likely to flip out at this latest development in the Huawei gong show. At this point, Canada should just hand over Meng and be done with it.
