Canadian court documents say test for extradition is met in Meng Wanzhou case

31st Jul 2020

Documents filed on behalf of the Canadian government in the ongoing extradition proceedings against Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou state that the requirements for extradition have been met. The documents set out the Canadian Attorney General’s legal opinion on the sufficiency of the evidence available to support extradition.

In May 2020, Ms Meng’s defence was dealt a blow when a judge ruled that the charges against her met the legal test of ’dual criminality’. The next stage in the proceedings is scheduled to take place over five days, beginning on 17 August, when the court will consider the validity of the Attorney General’s assertion of legal privilege over documents requested by Ms Meng’s legal team relating to her initial arrest.

Proceedings are expected to conclude in April 2021, with the possibility of further appeals thereafter. You can read more on this story here.
