The hearing on that day lasted for more than an hour. In the process of this round of hearing, the lawyers of both sides respectively stated their opinions in the court. Meng Wanzhous lawyer (defense lawyer) believes that the key evidence provided by the United States lacks the most important content and there are also false statements, which mislead the judge and is an abuse of Canadian judicial process. Based on this fact, the judge should terminate the extradition procedure. Lawyers from the Canadian Ministry of Justice (prosecution lawyers) believe that the judge should make a ruling and judgment on whether the conditions for extradition are sufficient, rather than judge the evidence provided by the US side, and ask the judge to reject Meng Wanzhous lawyers claim as the reason for the complaint.
Chief justice heatherholmes did not decide on the claims of both parties. According to the court schedule, several rounds of court debates will be held between the two sides, and it is expected that in February 2021, the judicial departments of Canada and the United States will decide whether they abuse judicial procedures. After that, the case will enter the third round, and it will also be the last round of trial and decision in the provincial high court. (Zhang Sen, head office reporter)
