According to the report, according to his lawyer, the request was based in part on the attempt by US President trump and other senior government officials to use the Meng evening boat as bargaining chips in trade disputes, thus undermining the judicial process.

If I think its good for the country, if I think its good for the country, if I think its good for the largest trade agreement ever - its vital - its good for national security - Ill certainly intervene when I think its necessary, trump told reporters shortly after Mengs arrest Lawyers said Trumps alleged willingness to intervene in the case if necessary constituted offense and coercion..
According to the report, Meng Wanzhous lawyer also accused the US side of misleading Canada in the case evidence, which led to the disadvantage of Meng Wanzhou, saying that the United States omission of evidence is far from the due diligence, openness and accuracy.
The White House and the State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment, Reuters said.
On December 1, 2018, at the request of the United States, Canadian police arrested Meng Wanzhou at Vancouver International Airport. The US side then filed an extradition request, accusing him of concealing Huaweis business dealings with Iran and cheating on HSBC in order to avoid US sanctions against Iran.
On May 27, the British Columbia High Court of Canada ruled on the dual crime in the Meng Wanzhou case, an executive of Huawei Company of China. According to the judgment, the United States request for extradition of Meng Wanzhou meets the dual crime standard and continues to promote the trial of the extradition case. Meng was asked to stay in Canada for a later hearing. In response, a spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in Canada said that the United States and Canada abused the bilateral extradition treaty and arbitrarily adopted coercive measures against Chinese citizens, which seriously violated the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens. The purpose of the US side is to suppress Chinas high-tech enterprises and Huawei. Canada has played the role of an accomplice to the US side. This is a serious political incident. The Chinese government is determined to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of its citizens and enterprises. We once again urge the Canadian side to take seriously Chinas solemn position and concerns, immediately release Ms. Meng Wanzhou and let her return to China safely, and do not go further and further on the wrong road.
