    Canada arrests Huawei CFO at US request

    Poor old OhOh will be sobbing into his cornflakes this morning.

    The chief financial officer of Chinese telecom company Huawei Technologies Co. faces extradition to the U.S. after being arrested in Canada, a Canadian official confirmed to POLITICO today.


    Sabrina Meng was arrested in Vancouver on Saturday, and a bail hearing is set for Friday, said Ian McLeod, a spokesperson for Canada's Department of Justice.

    "As there is a publication ban in effect, we cannot provide any further detail at this time," he said in a statement. "The ban was sought by Ms. Meng."


    The arrest could complicate efforts to restart long-stalled trade talks between the U.S. and China. It comes just days after President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met in Argentina and announced a temporary truce in their trade war while talks continue. U.S. concerns about security risks posed by Chinese technology companies are one of the central points of tension between the two countries.


    Meng, whose Chinese name is Meng Wanzhou, faces an investigation into whether she has run afoul of U.S. trade sanctions against Iran, the Globe and Mail
    reported today.


    A bipartisan group of lawmakers from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee has written to Prime Minister Justin Trudeauto register alarm over the prospect of Huawei or other Chinese state-directed companies being included in the development of Canada's 5G network. Allegations that Huawei poses a cybersecurity risk also spurred Congress to pass legislation this summer banning the U.S. government from procuring equipment or services from the company, as well as from fellow Chinese telecommunications firm ZTE.

    Senator
    Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, praised the arrest on Wednesday.

    "China is working creatively to undermine our national security interests, and the United States and our allies can't sit on the sidelines," he said in a statement. "Sometimes Chinese aggression is explicitly state-sponsored and sometimes it's laundered through many of Beijing's so-called 'private' sector entities that are in bed with Xi's communist party."


    Meng is also the daughter of Huawei’s founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei. Some mainland China media have identified Mengas a leading contender to succeed her father, the South China Morning Post reported.

    The Chinese government
    protested Canada's actions and requested Meng's immediate release, saying she had not violated any American or Canadian law.


    “The Chinese side has lodged stern representations with the US and Canadian side, urged them to immediately correct the wrongdoing and restore the personal liberty of Ms. Meng Wanzhou," the statement said. “We will closely follow the development of the issue and take all measures to resolutely protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens.”

    No one thinks it odd that the Murkins have had a Chinese person arrested, in Canada, because the company she works for supplies phones to Iran.

    Most of us realise there's probably more to it.

    Odd, no.


    A disgrace, yes.



    But I'm sure it was done to ensure safety to the World, and we can all rest assured that America is there to protect us all from the evils of this World.

    Most of you assume there is more to it, and it's not simply the US trying to ramp up a confrontation with China.

    Evern so - The US writes something on a bit of paper and suddenly the world thinks this behaviour is OK?

    probably a former Chinese spy, turning to the US, with the arrest as a cover-up excuse

    all these big Chinese firms CEOs and CFOs are involved somehow in deep politics and world espionage,

    Conveniently timed so Baldy orange cunto has something to bark to his trumpanzees about on Twatter after he's spent the last few days having the piss ripped out of him for his fake "China deal".

    Probably shorted a few stocks beforehand.

    I'm sure this isn't related...

    On Wednesday, BT, the UK telecoms group, confirmed it was in the process of removing Huawei equipment from the key parts of its 3G and 4G networks, as part of an existing internal policy not to have the Chinese firm at the centre of its infrastructure.

    She has a sister who at least is a bit easier on the eye.

    Point remains though - So if China wrote on a bit of paper that selling stuff to Canada was illegal they could get India to arrest the head of Apple and google there in that they are a the heart of information for the west?

    About time China rounds up all the western State linked companies head then for spying.

    they won't though... because China is the template for the world.

    The social experiment in China under. Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history
    Now guess who wrote that? I'll give you a clue.... he's from the same family who generously donated the land for the world government in waiting to be housed in.

    If it were the cretinous little scenario you just made up, it would be as laughable as you are, yes.

    However, if it is UN sanctions, then perhaps one should check if the chinkies signed on for them.

    Given that none of this is yet public knowledge, it's probably better if you keep your silly fairy stories to yourself.

    What fairy tale? Ohhh of course, it's not on CNN so it's not true. Now I remember

    Poor dimwit harry - can never read anything and just relies on CNN and reading headlines to pretend he knows something.


    However for people with a brain, it is a very interesting article to read

    You seem to be a bit obsessed with CNN.

    Is it your favourite channel or something?

    And what is the relevance of some old shite from 1973?

    Oh dear. Sorry, it wasn't on CNN your preferred information download source.

    Relevance? You are trying to make it something more than about sanctions. I am saying it is not, because the people who have stolen the US from the people there also pull the strings in China. But that's a little above your pay grade tinkle toes. best stick to the fake left right roooooskie chinkies USA USA paradigm you love so much. Swinger.

    Huawei has sold telecomm equipment to Iran after Drumpf forbade all countries in the world to do any business with them.

    How dare they.
    Actually there's a LITTLE more to it than that.
    Simply put, they said "if you want to do business in the U.S. then you can't do business with IRAN".
    That's quite within their rights to do.
    As far as arresting her, there's got to be a backstory, no matter how feeble.
    "In my professional assessment as an intelligence officer, Trump has a reflexive, defensive, monumentally narcissistic personality, for whom the facts and national interest are irrelevant, and the only thing that counts is whatever gives personal advantage and directs attention to himself."

    No I'm not do you dopey twat. Just about every report going says that she was arrested in connection with doing business with Iran in violation of sanctions.

    That's it.

    Everything else you say is stating the fucking obvious.

    Iran should be grateful, they can dump that Huawei spying shit now.

    Well as I said it earlier it might relate to UN sanctions going back a few years. We shall have to wait and see.

    Perhaps this will help the retards among us to understand a little more.
    Though its phones are popular all over the world, Huawei has been blocked by several countries from being involved in supplying equipment for the rollout of 5G networks, with governments citing national security fears

    To wander off topic a bit...

    I really like my Huawei phone, it is reliable, sturdy and fast with good battery life, good cameras and nice clear speakers. IMHO it is better made than an equivalent Samsung.
