Vancouver — Huawei’s chief financial officer has called for a ban on the publication of new evidence that her lawyers, who oppose extradition to the United States, want to submit to her lawyers.
Men Men Meng Wanzhou’s lawyer has obtained new material from HSBC by agreement in a court in Hong Kong. This agreement includes a clause that protects confidential information.
They argue in a document filed with the BC Supreme Court that the ban protects HSBC’s privacy interests associated with its business processes and encourages banks to participate in criminal justice proceedings.
However, the Attorney General’s lawyer in Canada, despite being able to edit personal information, has overkilled the request for a ban on all documents, undermining the media’s ability to share information with the public. It states.
Men Men Men has been wanted by the United States on suspicion of bank fraud, but neither she nor Huawei have denied.
She has been accused of lying to HSBC about Huawei’s control of another company and putting her at risk of violating US sanctions against Iran.
“A publication ban is needed to protect proper judicial administration,” justice Men Men’s lawyer said in the application.
A hearing on the ban on publication is scheduled for Monday, and a hearing on whether the court will allow the use of evidence is scheduled for the end of this month.
Men have been released on bail at one of his homes in Vancouver since he was arrested at Vancouver’s airport in December 2018.
The final hearing of her hand-over case is scheduled to begin on August 3.
