Meng Wanzhou was the suspect in the US for misleading United states by doing the selling the equipment in Iran through Huawei’s Hong Kong-based sell company which violates the U.S. sanctions and also for deceiving American banks about its business dealings in Iran.

Meng was detained in Canada on behalf of the United States of America while changing planes in Vancouver, Canada on 1 Dec.

Quoting to Le Yucheng, Xinhua reported that “Meng’s detention is extremely egregious and demand the U.S. vacate an order for her arrest.” The report also quoted that “Le as calling for the U.S. to correct its mistake immediately and said it would take further steps based on Washington’s response.

Earlier on Saturday, Chinese Foreign minister also summoned the Canadian Ambassador John McCallum over the Meng’s detention and lodged a protest by warning of “grave consequences” if she is not released.

At which, Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Chinese pressure on Canada’s government won’t work.

In its series of tweets, Roland Paris said that “Perhaps because the Chinese state controls its judicial system, Beijing sometimes has difficulty understanding or believing that courts can be independent in a rule-of-law country. There’s no point in pressuring the Canadian government. Judges will decide.”
