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.

U.S. fails to win enough support at United Nations to condemn Hamas
While General Assembly resolutions are non-binding, they are seen as an important barometer of world opinion. It was the first-ever proposed resolution condemning Hamas to be presented to the 193-nation assembly.

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.

They are also concerned about how the law's secrecy provisions will impact their business models and consumer privacy. Security experts are nearly unanimously against backdoors, precisely because of this weakening.

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.

This is where the high-stake Yemen peace talks will take place
