Huawei exec Meng Wanzhou may fight extradition by claiming US charges against her are politically motivated
Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested in Canada and faces possible extradition to the United States, is exploring a defense that claims US charges against her are politically motivated, the Globe and Mail newspaper reported on Monday.
Meng, the chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei, is the central figure in a high-stakes dispute between the United States and China. Canada arrested Meng in December at the request of the United States and last month she was charged with wire fraud that violated US sanctions on Iran.
