The Crown lawyer told the hearing that the US alleges Huawei Technologies used subsidiary Skycom to do business with Iran, violating sanctions against that country.

The company would not say why she faces extradition, but at Meng's bail hearing Friday, the Crown revealed she is wanted due to an investigation into fraud and violations against USA sanctions against Iran.

While there is some fear that the arrest could hurt talks between the US and China to end the current trade war between the two countries, Canadian prosecutors have called Ming a flight risk and have requested that the court place her in a detention center.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

The company says she faces extradition to the United States on unspecified charges.

He said one of the glaring deficiencies in the allegations is that the summary of the case doesn't differentiate between time periods.

Meng, who takes her last name from her mother, received a master's degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhun, China, and started in a low-level position at Huawei in 1993 when she in her 20s. Martin told the court the PowerPoint presentation his client delivered to the bank is supposed to be evidence of fraud, but that claim is "preposterous". Huawei has denied violating sanctions.

China has been angry about the incident and has demanded Meng's release.

Meng appeared before a packed court room and spoke to her lawyers through a translator.

Freeland reiterated what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday: that Meng's arrest was part of an independent legal process that is separate from politics. The court heard she was en route from Hong Kong to Mexico.

He argued the financial institutions that did business with Huawei were the "victims" of those misrepresentations.

Gibb-Carsley said the banks were "victim institutions" of fraud by Meng.

Earlier on Friday, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said neither Canada nor the United States provided China any evidence that Meng had broken any law in the two countries, and demanded her release. While personal details are scant, she is married and has a son and a daughter, Huawei said.

Since then, Huawei has grown into the world's biggest supplier of network gear for phone and internet companies. The United States has pressured European countries and other allies to limit the use of its technology.

Huawei, he explained, is one company the USA has been particularly concerned about.

Meng is a prominent member of Chinese society as deputy chairwoman of the Huawei board. The United States issued her arrest warrant on August 22, and BC issued a provincial arrest warrant for her on November 30.

"If you have infinite resources, the value of pledges diminishes", the lawyer representing Canada's attorney general said.

Huawei has grown to more than 170,000 employees and does businesses in more than 170 countries since Ren founded the company in 1987.

Huawei said on Wednesday that "the company has been provided very little information regarding the charges and is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms. Meng". She holds a master's degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. She was widely considered to be his likely successor. Meng's father is worth $3.2 billion.
