Huawei exec accused of fraud for violating sanctions against Iran

Reporters in attendance tweeted details from the hearing, and noted the shocked reaction from the gathered crowd upon learning the possible severity of Meng's punishment were she to face trial and be found guilty.

She allegedly falsely told banks that Huawei was a separate company from SkyCom Tech so that banks would approve transactions that violated sanctions against Iran.

Hong Kong-based SkyCom's alleged sanctions breaches occurred from 2009 to 2014.

He suggested that Meng has shown a pattern of avoiding the United States since becoming aware of the investigation into the matter, has no ties to Canada and has access to vast wealth and connections - and thus poses a flight risk.

Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, 46, who is also the daughter of the company founder, was arrested on December 1 at the request of the United States.

Trump says he'll nominate William Barr to be attorney general
Barr later worked as a corporate general counsel and is now of counsel at a prominent worldwide law firm, Kirkland & Ellis LLP. President Trump could pick William Barr , who has already led the Justice Department, as his next attorney general.

Meng arrived in the packed Supreme Court of British Columbia as dozens of photographers jostled outside the building.

Meng's lawyer, David Martin, disputed the prosecutor's call to deny bail, saying, "The fact a person has worked hard and has extraordinary resources can not be a factor that would exclude them from bail".

Chinese Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said on Friday that neither Canada nor the United States had provided China any evidence that Meng had broken any law in those two countries, and reiterated Beijing's demand that she be released.

"The Chinese government should seriously mull over the United States tendency to abuse legal procedures to suppress China's high-tech enterprises", said the nationalist tabloid Global Times in an editorial.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that the detention of Chinese technology giant Huawei's HWT.UL chief financial officer in Canada was an example of "arrogant" USA policy overseas.

USA trade deficit with China expands
China has said it will immediately implement measures agreed under a trade war "truce" with the US. It was unclear if Gao was referring to the tariffs in his remarks to reporters.

China's foreign ministry has pushed Canada to reveal the reason for the arrest and the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa has branded Meng's arrest a serious violation of human rights.

A Canadian court must decide if there is sufficient evidence to support the extradition, but then it is left to Canada's justice minister to sign the order.

Huawei's affordable smartphones have made strong inroads in the developing world, but the company has faced repeated setbacks in major Western economies over security concerns. That was about six years after the company was founded to sell phone switches.

"Huawei is SkyCom. This is the alleged fraud", Canadian prosecutor John Gibb-Carsley said.
