The issues related to Huawei and Canadian government is getting stronger.The lawyers for Huawei chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, are suing the Canadian government, its border agency and federal police, alleging their client was detained, searched and interrogated for three hours in violation of her constitutional rights.
The Canadian government arrested the Huawei CFO on December 1 at the request of United States portraying her Huawei is a threat to US national security.Meng was charged with bank and wire fraud to violate American sanctions against Iran.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police—Canada’s federal police—only exercised its arrest warrant three hours after Meng’s “unlawful” detention at the airport, the lawsuit added.
The lawsuit further alleged that Meng was directed to surrender all her electronic devices, computers and passwords and that CBSA officers then unlawfully opened and viewed the contents of the seized devices in violation of her right to privacy.
The arrest and law suit against the Huawei founder’s daughter however worsened the relations between China and Canada.
