Chinese CFO claims she was detained and interrogated before being told she was under arrest
Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officers of Chinese tech giant Huawei, is suing the Canadian government, its border agency and the national police force over her high-profile detention, saying they detained, searched and interrogated her before telling her she was under arrest.
Lawyers for Meng said on Sunday they had filed a notice of civil claim in the British Columbia supreme court. Canada arrested Meng, the daughter of Huawei’s founder, at the request of the US, on 1 December at Vancouver’s airport. She is wanted on fraud charges that allege she misled banks about the company’s business dealings in Iran.
