In a brief announcement released today, the Canadian Ministry of Justice has announced that it has arrested chief economist Huawei, Meng Wanzhou. According to the Canadian government, Meng was arrested on December 1, 19459004, at at the request of the United States, trying to get her handed out. A citizen’s hearing is scheduled for Friday to decide what will happen next.
Outside the arrest, very little information is released on the matter at this time, largely because a request for a public order like Meng was requested. Canadian authorities, for its part, do not provide any details besides the arrest, and various US news organizations have not been able to comment on US officials’ officials.
Huawei himself has become increasingly on the cliffs with the United States for the past year. The company’s sales of handsets have ceased after AT & T backed a deal earlier this year. At the same time unconfirmed reports were revealed in April that the United States investigated Huawei to potentially violate export ban on Iran, a scenario that caused a Chinese company ZTE in significant problems earlier this year.
Huawei likes, like ZTE, partly on US technology imports for its products and US export regulations, these products are, in turn, forbidden to export to Iran and other limited countries. In the case of ZTE, the case became final only after the company underwent extensive restructuring, as the United States Government has made it clear that it intends to enforce its export rules strongly. If Meng has been arrested to violate these restrictions, this would mark the start of another significant technical export regulation case to the United States.
