Vancouver — Huawei’s Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou’s deportation case will begin today at the British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver.
The Justice Department and Meng’s lawyer anticipate a legal debate over the next few weeks as to whether she should be handed over to the United States.

Meng’s lawyer told the judge that the document contained an email chain and spreadsheet that undermined her allegations of fraud and proved that the United States had misunderstood the court in a summary to Canada. ..
Meng has been on bail living in one of his homes in Vancouver since he was arrested at Vancouver’s airport in December 2018.
Her arrest heated relations between Canada and China, and the subsequent arrests of Canadians Michael Superber and Michael Kovrig are widely seen as retaliation by the Chinese government.
