    "A spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in Ottawa released a statement protesting Meng's arrest, which it said "seriously harmed" her "human rights." " and if anyone knows human rights abuses it's China

    Flexing. I can imagine if China arrested Steve Jobs because he did business with Austrailia or Tibet (theoretical) there would be little grounds for it.

    Luckily it never happened. USA forgets to look in the mirror before they do things, and are definitely heading the way of fascism. The way I see it, is that if you build 30,000 nukes an don't use them, you have to at the very least occasionally arrest people to still show dominance. A thug is not an effective thug unless they flex every once in a while.

    The USA as a global business partner is pretty much untrustworthy - Just to reiterate. The low price in Canadian heavy oil was no doubt engineered by the USA to gain temporary trade advantage. I mean as soon as you start doing tariffs on goods, you aren't even bothering to hide it.

    I don't understand how this can happen

    The US can have citizens of other countries arrested in Canada for being part of a company that is under suspicion of violating a trade sanction?

    How do they even have legal jurisdiction over this person? Or how is Canada able to act on behalf of the US in this kind of case?
    Hmm, I don't think that is quite right. There will obviously be charges announced shortly.

    Also, Interpol as an example of this happening all the time.

    Same way they extradite people for all sorts of crimes. It's not Panama, we have agreements with other countries.

    Interesting precedent, but there isn't enough information, and the publication ban is apparently the CFO's request.

    I do know that the conduct for which extradition is sought must be considered criminal in both the requesting country and in Canada. And I don't think Canada or the UN has any economic sanctions against Iran currently.

    If Huwaei supplied technology for nuclear development, that could play a role.

    The Huawei threat has been going on forever. Here's a decent summary of it:

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/featu...t-tech-company

    Huawei was blamed for the downfall of our very own Nortel as well through industrial espionage. They were busted for copying Cisco, and is accused of being so ingrained into Nortel that they were able to be steps ahead of them in every way. Nortel had complained to the RCMP about Huawei as far back as 2004 but the RCMP and CSIS had zero technology, tools, or skills to investigate hacking at the time.

    Good article and very much in line with what I already knew - this event is just a political stunt.

    Everyone spies on everyone -> Americans spy on Chinese and Chinese spy on Americans - oh wait, AMERICANS DONT LIKE THIS - WE MUST BAN CHINESE TECH (except, pretty much all tech is manufactured in SE asia).

    American tech companies are in bed with the American government, and the Chinese tech companies same.

    Yeah but... She isn't the actual hacker. She might not have been born or working for the company at the time some of the alleged spying happened. Might not have even given the "ok".

    Its a big stretch to say "chain of command" on something you can't even prove.

    But yes in general: Everyone spies on everyone else. America does it too, but that doesn't mean you can go around kidnapping American CFO because you think he/she might have hired a hacker 10 years ago. Or is that now fair game?

    Not sure if its mentioned in any of the links above, but I found it interesting that she is also the daughter of the companies founder.

    This is why stock crashed today because this is personal.

    ZTE is accused of the same thing and nobody was arrested, just cost them $1B.

    In that few months when Huawei and Nortel worked together, they had a data sharing program. There was literally built a direct connection between the networks that was unsecured on the Nortel side. The security staff that did the implementation brought up concerns prior to implementation but were overruled by management and told to leave it open. The network guys knew the drain was happening but were told to ignore it. Later, when the DND bought the former Nortel Campus in Ottawa, they did a standard security sweep. It was bugged up the wazoo. DND had to gut the building to the studs to finally clean it.

    Too hard to tell, considering the huge # of people that left Nortel ended up at Huawei.
