Canada prosecutor says essence of Huawei CFO case is fraud

Canada’s Department of Justice said Friday the allegation against a top Chinese executive arrested at the United States’ request would be a crime in Canada and she should be extradited to the United States on fraud charges. Canada arrested Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of Huawei’s founder, in Dec. 2018 in a case that sparked a diplomatic furor among the three countries and complicated high-stakes U.S.-China trade talks. China detained two Canadians in apparent retaliation for the arrest Meng.
