Canadian Intelligence Agency had warned of a likely global scale “shock wave” alongside a serious conflict of interest with Beijing regarding the arrest of Huawei CFO (Chief Financial Officer) and the daughter of billionaire Huawei founder Ren Zheng before making the arrest in Vancouver following a US extradition request on December 1, 2018, a recently revealed court document showed.
More importantly, the court document published later last week had reaffirmed the involvement of Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) on December 2018 arrest of Meng Wanzhou, which eventually had soured relationship between Ottawa and Beijing.
Besides, as the world’s No. 1 networking gear manufacturer, Huawei Technologies had become a collateral damage in the US President Donald Trump’s perverse trade war with China, an extradition request for Huawei CFO Meng Wangzhou was widely contemplated as an approach of the Trump Administration to gain further leverage at its spat with the world’s second-largest economy.
CSIS report reveals Canadian intel’s scheme with FBI to detain Meng
Meanwhile, as part of a long-running court-battle over US extradition request for Huawei CFO Meng, a CSIS report was disclosed in the court later last week that said the CSIS was approached by the US FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) to scheme a plot aimed at detaining Meng upon her arrival on a flight into the Vancouver International airport.
Besides, the report had also added the Canadian Intelligence had warned of the possible consequences of detaining the Huawei CFO Meng Wangzhou. As the Huawei lawyers had called the CSIS report a proof of plotting against the Huawei CFO, the report said, “The arrest is likely to send shockwaves around the world.
The ‘planned event’ will be of great consequence internationally and bilaterally. ” However, Meng, who had been accused of financial fraud due to her attempt to mislead HSBC regarding a transaction processed through a Hong Kong-based tech firm for sales of critical tech equipment to Iran despite Eu and US Sanctions, had been in house arrest for more than a year with a 24*7 surveillance tracker wrapped around her ankle.
