Meng happens to be the daughter of the founder and CEO of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, a former engineer in the People's Liberation Army, whose affiliation with the Chinese Communist Party has contributed to the suspicion of US intelligence. Meng also serves as Vice Chairman of the Board of Huawei.
The US has issued an arrest warrant against Meng, issued on 22 August by a New York court. 60 days have passed on Saturday after Meng's arrest on Saturday to provide evidence and intentions for Canadian courts.
