On the morning of September 23, Vancouver, Canada, the extradition case of Ms. Meng Wanzhou, Chief Financial Officer of Huawei Company, was heard again in the British Columbia High Court.
At about 9:30 a.m., Ms. Meng Wanzhou, dressed in a purple skirt, came out of her home with a smile and greeted the reporters waiting in the rain at the gate of the yard.

Unlike previous procedural trials, extradition cases have entered a substantive stage from today, that is to say, both the prosecution and the defense will debate the evidence and key issues in the case.

A spokesman for Huawei, Benjamin Howes, has just issued a statement to the media expressing his belief in Mengs innocence, but it is not convenient to disclose more information. The lawyersgroup expressed confidence that the Canadian courts could decide the extradition case of Meng Wanzhou impartially and independently.
The details of the statement are as follows_
As you know, the court is hearing the matter, so it is not convenient for us to make specific comments. We fully support Ms. Meng and believe that she is innocent. We are also fully convinced that the independence and impartiality of Canadian judicial process will surely give her back her innocence.

Earlier reports: Mengs case of illegal detention reopened. Mengs team accused the Canadian government and the United States of America.
Vancouver is unlikely to be the front line in the game between superpowers, CBC reported Wednesday. Meng Wanzhou, an executive of Huawei, will return to the Supreme Court of British Columbia on the same day. Her appearance in a few monthstime will undoubtedly attract global attention again. The Canadian authorities, who plan to extradite her to the United States, will face a new round of struggle, according to a Bloomberg News agency. At the same time, Canadian elections will be held next month. The people of the country are aware of the need to elect a suitable prime minister to deal with an unprecedented confrontation with China in the future.
Canadian Globe Post reported Tuesday that this week in two independent courts, judges will listen to Mengs lawyer teams arguments in a two-pronged refusal to extradite case. On the one hand, Mengs lawyer will ask the prosecution to disclose the documents and details of her detention and arrest at Vancouver International Airport on December 1 last year at an eight-day hearing. The analysis said that this was not an extradition hearing, but the information would be evidence of Mengs complaint against Canadian authorities for violating regulations and requesting the termination of extradition proceedings. Mengs lawyers will accuse the Canadian Border Service (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) of violating her constitutional rights during their arrest. Bangladeshs lawyers accused Canadian officials of being agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and said the only question left is to what extent the FBI has participated in the so-calledplan.
According to the CBC, Vancouver is unlikely to be the front line in the game between the two global superpowers. But last year, Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou at the request of the United States and tried to extradite her to the United States for trial. Canada was placed in conflict between China and the United States. Reported that before the hearing began on 23, Mengs lawyer team submitted a document to the court accusing the United States tried to use these extradition procedures (between the United States and Canada) to serve its own economic and political interests and hijacked Meng as a bargaining chip in the Sino-US trade war. Meng was arrested at Vancouver Airport on December 1 last year when he was transferring. Trump, in an interview with Reuters on December 11, said publicly that he was willing to intervene in Mengs case if it would help China and the United States reach a trade agreement.
In addition, Mengs lawyer team said that the US and Canadian authorities used CBSAs special detention right to conduct a secret criminal investigation on Mengs late boat. A CBSA official inquired about Huaweis business in Iran while searching Mengs luggage. RCMP intended to arrest Mengs late boat on the plane, but changed for some special reasons. The original intention. Lawyers point out that all of these factors constitute an abuse of procedure and are sufficient to nullify the entire case. In this case, one can reasonably speculate that the FBI has been in contact with the Federal Justice Department of Canada, RCMP and CBSA in this incident, but the relevant materials have been concealed. Our client believes that CBSA and RCMP are driven by the interests of the FBI and other U.S. government agencies and may be guided by them. She is in Vancouver. The International Airport was illegally detained.
With more and more details being disclosed, the illegal arrest of Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities has been increasingly questioned. Gary Potin, a Vancouver lawyer, saw a video of Bangladeshs detention at the airport, Reuters reported on Wednesday. He said that there are doubts as to whether the rights of Bangladeshs late boat have been violated. CBC23 quoted Paul Evans, a professor at the University of British Columbia and honorary director of the Asian Institute, as saying that this weeks proceedings are most concerned about whether extradition could be used as a rent-seeking and long-arm jurisdictional pursuit tool in the interests of the United States, when people talk about who is undermining the rule of law and the international community. We should not evade what the United States did in pursuit of Mengs late boat, which not only frightened the Chinese, but also the Europeans.
During a visit to Canada, US Secretary of State Pompeo, meeting with Canadian Foreign Minister Fryland, said that the arbitrary detention of two Canadian citizens by the Chinese side was very different from the case of the Mengwangzhou boat. Associated Press reporter asked about the response of the Chinese Embassy in Canada.
A spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in Canada responded that the nature of the case of Bangladeshs late boat incident was of course completely different from that of two Canadian citizens. The Meng Late Boat Incident was not a simple judicial case, but a case in which the United States used its national power to suppress a Chinese private high-tech enterprise with its individual allies on unnecessary charges. This is typical bullying.
The spokesman said that individual politicians in the United States and Canada reversed black and white in the Mengwangzhou incident in an attempt to mislead public opinion and the public, and once again fully exposed the political nature of the incident. What the United States and Canada did in the Bangladesh Late Boat Incident was arbitrary detention of Chinese citizens. The two countries abused bilateral extradition treaties and seriously violated the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens. It was entirely for political purposes. Once again, we urge Canada and the United States to take Chinas solemn stand seriously, correct mistakes, release Ms. Meng Wanzhou immediately and ensure her safe return to China.
The spokesman pointed out that two Canadian citizens, Cummingkai and Michael, were arrested in accordance with the law on suspicion of endangering Chinas national security. China reiterates once again that China is a country ruled by law and that its judicial organs handle cases independently according to law. Any country should respect Chinas judicial sovereignty, and should not make any comments on matters within the scope of Chinas judicial sovereignty.
Meng Wanzhou was detained and the picture was released that Ren Zhengfei stood up for his daughter many times.
Secondly, the United States is too strong to control the global voice. It is easy for everyone to believe what the United States says. Therefore, Huawei is under too much negative pressure. It is my duty to speak more. First, to enhance customer confidence, Huawei will not collapse, will be responsible for customers; second, to enhance the confidence of suppliers, our company can survive, sell to us spare parts, in the future can pay; third, to enhance employee confidence, good work, the company can survive, despite the United States. The blow is very severe, but our company is also very strong; finally, it also conveys the correct voice to the society, so that the society can understand us. When no one so sharp accused us before, we can never jump out and say ourselves. Now that the United States is so sharply accusing, it has a chance to explain itself and let everyone know about Huawei. At present, the public opinion about Huawei understanding about 30%, 70% is still not understanding enough, so we should continue to say.
Im not just trying to save my daughter, Im also trying to save our company, so Im going to come forward.
