China has reportedly detained a Canadian senior advisor for an global NGO, who was a previously a diplomat in Hong Kong and the mainland.
Ms Meng has been held since Dec 1 in Canada on an American extradition request and faces United States charges related to sanctions-breaking business dealings with Iran. If extradited and convicted, she could face sentences as long as 30 years.
"Even after the children stopped attending school in Vancouver, my husband and younger children spent many weeks, sometimes months, here during the summer", Meng said in her court statement. If Canada fails to release the aggrieved Chinese citizen, it went on, "there would be grave consequences, and Canada would have to take full responsibility".
China today protested Canada's "inhumane" treatment of an executive of telecom giant Huawei who is being held on a USA extradition bid, citing reports she was not getting sufficient medical care.
She is scheduled to appear on Tuesday in the Supreme Court of British Columbia for the third day of her bail hearing.
Two witnesses from the security firms are called by Meng's lawyer to outline the surveillance measures that would address any flight risk.
Meng, who is also the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested in Vancouver while she was en route to Mexico from Hong Kong, at the request of the US Justice Department. Freeland on Monday said the Meng case is being handled under domestic and worldwide law and it's not appropriate for Canadian politicians to interfere.
Meng is believed to have stopped traveling to the United States when her company became aware of an investigation into the telecommunications company.
'Underneath the core of the fraud, a financial institution in the United States is being induced to violate sanctions against Iran, ' Gibb-Carsley said.
Additionally, "Huawei took steps to move US -based Chinese national employees who may have had knowledge of facts related to the investigation out of the United States".
None of the allegations against Ms. Meng have been proven in court. "This is Damocles' sword hanging over the Chinese government".
She told the court she was a Canadian resident until 2009, after which she returned to China. Huawei and its lawyers have said the company operates in strict compliance with applicable laws, regulations and sanctions of the United States and other parties.
A U.S. Treasury spokesman confirmed that the call with Liu took place, but offered no further details.
If not, the article warned, "Canada will pay a heavy price".
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says that the decision to carry out the arrest was made "without any political involvement or interference".
"Canada may very well have the world's most ideal judiciary system that it claims to be fully independent from political influence, but that's not even close to explaining why Canada took such a politically charged move without offering any legal explanation", the article said.
