HUAWEI WOES: China summons US envoy over 'inhumane' detention

Rule of law is vital in Canada’s Huawei case

Citing security concerns, the USA government has taken a series of steps to block the company from some parts of the United States market, which is widely perceived in China as an effort to hold the company back.

The U.S. had requested no bail for the executive, who still faces extradition to the states.

She has been accused of conspiracy to defraud banks after the company allegedly violated sanctions against Iran. All three countries have imposed bans on the use of Huawei's equipment because of concerns it could be used by Chinese security services to hack their communication networks.

In a Tuesday Facebook post, Huawei says the company adheres to all Canadian and US laws and that it has faith authorities will come to a "just conclusion" in Meng's case. If convicted, she faces more than 30 years in prison. The Canadian government said it saw no explicit link to the Huawei case, but analysts had predicted retaliation from Beijing.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Kang said he had nothing he could say on the details of the case. Meng was apprehended, on Washington's request, for allegedly violating USA sanctions on Iran.

Trump said that Huawei's alleged practices are troubling. They said she was taken to a hospital for hypertension treatment after being detained.

Catherine Sas, another immigration lawyer, says this should be good news for a former Canadian diplomat now being detained in Beijing, but the judge's decision would not factor into whether this might please the government of China.

"I can tell you that based on my 13 years of experience in China, there are no coincidences".

But Guy Saint-Jacques, a former Canadian ambassador to China, told broadcaster CBC he had no doubt Kovrig was detained in relation to Meng's arrest. "So we have to look at trade as something that's in the important long-term interest of Canada and China, and look at the legal issue separately".
