Canada ambassador says Meng has 'strong case' against extraditionA top Chinese tech executive arrested last month in Canada has a “strong case” against extradition to the United States, Canada’s ambassador to China said in comments broadcast here Wednesday. Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested on December 1 while changing planes in Vancouver at the request of the United States, which says she committed fraud by lying to bankers about allegedly violating American sanctions on Iran. Speaking to Chinese-language media in Markham, Ontario on Tuesday, after briefing lawmakers on the plight of two Canadians detained in China and a third placed on death row in what are widely seen as retaliatory moves by Beijing, Ambassador John McCallum said the US extradition request is seriously flawed.
