Huawei CFO, Heiress Arrested In Canada Over Alleged Iranian Sanctions Violation


The Chinese government is calling for for the release of Meng Wanzhou. She's an executive at Chinese electronics maker Huawei. According to Gizmodo, she was arrested in Canada last weekend while transferring flights. Meng reportedly faces extradition to the U.S. for allegedly violating American sanctions against Iran. Not only is Meng Huawei's Chief Financial Officer, she's also the daughter of the tech giant’s founder, Ren Zhengfei. Huawei is one of the largest tech companies in the world, but it has been banned from helping build fundamental communications infrastructure in some western countries, over fears that it leaves those countries vulnerable to espionage on behalf of the Chinese government. Best Buy has even halted sales of Huawei devices completely in the U.S. Huawei has said it has “very little information regarding the charges and is not aware of any wrongdoing."
