Canada arrests CFO of China’s Huawei Technologies

A Huawei spokesman said Wednesday that Ms. Meng was arrested while transferring flights in Canada.

According to The Globe and Mail, it is alleged that Meng attempted to evade USA trade sanctions against Iran.

USA officials have been investigated Huawei over alleged violations of the country's sanctions on Iran and are seeking to extradite Meng. If Meng has been arrested for violating these restrictions, then this would mark the start of another significant technology export regulation case for the US.

Huawei's global chief financial officer was arrested in Vancouver, B.C., on December 1 on suspicion of violation of USA sanctions against Iran, according to a report in The Globe and Mail. "She is sought for extradition by the United States and a bail hearing has been set for Friday", he said.

As there is a publication ban in effect, which was requested by Meng, the department declined to provide any further detail of the extradition.

It comes as Huawei is said to be facing a probe by the U.S. Justice Department for violating sanctions against Iran.
