Canadian law enforcement has arrested Wanzhou Meng, Huawei's global chief financial officer, on the suspicion that she violated USA trade sanctions against Iran, according to a Globe and Mail report.
He said Meng is sought for extradition by the U.S.
Mcleod refused to elaborate on the charges that Meng might face in the USA citing a publication ban, requested by Meng herself. "The ban was sought by Ms. Meng". She is also the daughter of the company's founder, Ren Zhengfei.
Reuters reported in 2013 that Ms. Meng served on the board of a Hong Kong-based Skycom Tech Co.
If Meng has been arrested for violating these restrictions, then this would mark the start of another significant technology export regulation case for the US. She was detained while transferring between flights, the firm said.
