Crown says lone breach of Meng Wanzhou’s rights would not be enough to toss extradition


Giving her phone passcodes to RCMP doesn’t amount to a conspiracy, says the prosecutor. The lead counsel for Canada’s Attorney General conceded Friday that the judge overseeing Meng Wanzhou’s extradition proceedings may find a Canada Border Services Agency officer breached the Huawei executive’s rights by giving the RCMP the passcodes to her phones. But Robert Frater told B.C. Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes even if she does find a violation of Meng’s right to protection against unreasonable search and seizure under Section 8 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it wouldn’t be enough to toss the case. Frater told Holmes the defence has failed to prove the existence of a conspiracy, attempts to cover up wrongdoing or any meaningful delay in Meng’s arrest.
