Huawei’s Meng Lied, Support Extradition to US: Federal Documents
Discussion posted by: TheRage
Documents from lawyers for Canada’s attorney general say a series of witnesses will prove Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou lied to HSBC bank about the company’s relationship’s with Skycom in Iran. The documents released Friday are the government’s arguments to be used during a hearing next April and they say there’s enough to prove fraud in support of Meng’s extradition to the United States. The documents say witnesses, including former employees of Huawei, FBI investigators, and officials with HSBC—the bank at the centre of the allegations—will say Meng falsely said Huawei didn’t control Skycom. Huawei advised HSBC that its shares in Skycom were sold in 2009 and Meng resigned her position on the board in the same year, the documents say.
