Canadian Judge Postpones His Decision on Huawei Executive’s Bail

TORONTO, Canada – Huawei’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, will remain in prison for another day following Monday’s decision of a Canadian judge to hold the third hearing on Tuesday to determine if he grants her a release on bail.

Judge William Ehrcke of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada, announced that the hearing will continue Tuesday after hearing the arguments of the defense attorneys to grant Meng’s bail while it is decided whether she is to be extradited to the United States.

Meng, 46, was arrested by Canadian authorities at the request of the US on Dec. 1 in Vancouver while she was on her way to Mexico.

The Chinese citizen is accused by US authorities of fraud for violating the trade sanctions imposed by the US on Iran. Meng, the daughter of Huawei’s founder, has denied the accusation.

The Canadian prosecutor’s office has asked Ehrcke to keep Meng in prison until the courts decide on the extradition of the Huawei CFO to the US, a process that can last a year.

For his part, the State’s attorney stated that he prefers that Meng be kept under house arrest.

Ehrcke decided to postpone his decision on Meng’s release on bail because of doubts raised by the Attorney General’s Office and the State’s Attorney about the legality of Meng’s husband, a Chinese citizen with no residence in Canada, who is guaranteeing the bail to be paid.
