Spokesperson: China firmly opposes ruling on Meng Wanzhou case

Added On May 30, 2020

China has expressed strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to a Canadian court's ruling on the case against Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, and has made solemn representations to Canada on the issue.

The Canadian British Columbia Supreme Court on May 27 ruled on the so-called "double criminality" in the case of Meng, holding that the U.S. extradition request against Meng conforms to the principle of "double criminality."

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said the United States and Canada abused their bilateral extradition treaty and arbitrarily took compulsory measures against a Chinese citizen without reason, grossly violating the legitimate rights and interests of the Chinese citizen.
He added the Chinese government is firm in its resolve to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of its citizens and enterprises.
