She faces numerous charges in the US, along with the Chinese Telecom giant, including a violation of U.S. sanctions against Iran. American charges for which she was arrested in Canada is cheating Bank which is a crime in this country and the United States.

In may, Ms. man has lost its first legal proposal for the completion of the extradition process.

Canada the arrest of Ms. Meng led to a break in relations with China, which included Beijing castle two Canadians – Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor – in retaliation and the imposition of restrictions on farm trade goods. China accused Canada to take part in a “political conspiracy” with the United States to undermine Huawei.

In new court documents, Ms. man is a challenging key elements of the case of the United States against her, weakening several occasions when she claims that the Americans distort the facts in favor of their case. She focused on the documents submitted by us prosecutors to describe evidence supporting the us extradition request.

USA “wrongly cut” record of the case against Ms. man “in support of his theory of criminal responsibility,” the new Executive of Huawei’s lawsuits say. This includes selectively quoting evidence.

The United States asserts that Ms. man lied to banks including HSBC about the true nature of the relationship between Huawei and a subsidiary in Iran, called Skycom, and that this deception has led bankers to clean up hundreds of millions of dollars of transactions in violation of U.S. sanctions.

The government of the United States, her lawyers say, misled the Supreme court of British Columbia by selectively quoting from this PowerPoint, a copy of which is included in the present document to the court.

They argue that the U.S. record of the case against Ms. Meng and Huawei lowers “very important information” of the two slides and thus leaves the impression that the Executive technician never told h that Skycom has done business with Huawei in Iran or that Huawei and Skycom have had a long business relationship.

The legal team says the slide 6 and slide 16 shows that Ms. the man was much more transparent with HSBC than suggested. Omitted statements “as a business partner of Huawei, Skycom works with Huawei in the field of sales and services in Iran” and Huawei “normal and controlled business cooperation with Skycom”, it was controlled by Skycom.

The lawyers of Ms. Meng to say that these omissions and distortions serious. USA “conduct fell so far below the expected standard of diligence, sincerity and accuracy constitute serious violations of the process,” they say.

In new court documents also claim that since August 2013 the presentation of the Bank HSBC announced that Huawei and Skycom have worked together in Iran, the financial institution was aware that he could not clear Skycom funds through U.S. banks without risking the violation of U.S. sanctions law. “[Ms. Meng’s] The PowerPoint presentation gave h material the information necessary to assess the risk of clearing transactions in U.S. dollars related business Skycom in Iran”.

In addition, the legal team g-man says, there is no need to clear transactions in U.S. dollars through U.S. banks. It provides evidence, including a statement that HSBC has the option clearing funds via the clearing system automated the transfer of a building (chats), an alternative transaction and clearing system is based in Hong Kong,“ which includes in the United States without risk of sanctions.”

“In summary – the facts not disclosed [United States]: Without cheating. No material omission. No behavior [Ms. Meng] the location of HSBC Bank at risk. No fraud”, her legal team said in the latest court filings.

Recent filings for Ms. man also cite Dec 2019 statement by the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to support its argument that the efforts for extradition to the US ruined.

While Mr. Trudeau has repeatedly stated that the canadian extradition process judicial and not political, it opened in December last year that he had asked Mr. trump not cut final trade agreement with China, while there was no resolution in the cases of Ms. Meng and two Canadians.

“The obvious implication of these observations is that the Prime Minister brought to the attention [United States] he supports its use [Ms. Meng’s] the case as a bargaining chip in trade negotiations,” legal Department, CFO of Huawei, said in court documents.

“Statements by the Prime Minister as to strengthen [Ms. Meng] caught in a geopolitical battle, did not depend on the merits of her criminal case.”
