Senior Huawei executive arrested in Canada

Senior Huawei executive arrested in Canada

"The ban was sought by Ms. Meng", McLeod said.

Meng is the deputy chair of Huawei's board and is the daughter of company founder Zhengfei Ren, from his first marriage.

A Canadian source with knowledge of the arrest said US law enforcement authorities are alleging that Ms. Meng tried to evade the USA trade embargo against Iran but provided no further details. No other details were available.

The federal Crown prosecutor handling the case declined to comment outside court on the reasons for Meng's arrest, referring questions to the federal Justice Department.

According to The Wall Street Journal, since 2016, United States prosecutors have been examining whether Huawei broke United States trade embargoes to Iran.

The Globe and Mail reported the arrest was in relation to sanctions-busting in Iran - rather than any concerns about espionage by the Chinese firm - which has annual revenues of US$93 billion (NZ$135b) and 180,000 employees and is deeply embedded with many New Zealand telcos.

The statement, which said it was to be attributed to Huawei headquarters, added that Huawei complies with all applicable laws and regulations where it operates, including applicable export and sanction laws and regulations of the United Nations, US and European Union.

"At the request of the USA side, the Canadian side arrested a Chinese citizen not violating any American or Canadian law".

According to the Globe and Mail, Meng was arrested in Vancouver on December 1 and has a bail hearing on December 7.

Ms. Meng is a rising star at Shenzhen-based Huawei, now the world's second-largest maker of telecommunications equipment. "The company believes the Canadian and United States legal systems will ultimately reach a just conclusion", it said.

The US later replaced the ban with a fine and governance changes.

Britain's BT Group said on Wednesday it was removing Huawei Technologies' equipment from the core of its existing 3G and 4G mobile operations and would not use the Chinese company in central parts of the new network.

The NPRM had suggested that Universal Service Fund (USF) funding not be spent on "equipment or services from suppliers that pose a national security threat to the integrity of communications networks or the communications supply chain", with the FCC including direct references to Huawei and ZTE.
