Senior executive from China's Huawei arrested in Canada

Senior executive from China's Huawei arrested in Canada

Meng is the deputy chair of Huawei's board and is the daughter of company founder Zhengfei Ren, from his first marriage.

"The company believes the Canadian and USA legal systems will ultimately reach a just conclusion", the statement said.

"The company has been provided very little information regarding the charges and is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms. Meng", the statement said.

The statement said that Meng was taken into custody when she was transferring flights in Canada. The ban was sought by Meng, who has a bail hearing Friday, he said. "The ban was being sought by Ms. Meng".

The Globe and Mail reported earlier Wednesday that she was arrested on suspicion of violating US trade sanctions on Iran.

Asked about the report that Huawei was under investigation, Hua said in April, "We hope the USA will refrain from taking actions that could further undermine investor confidence in the USA business environment and harm its domestic economy and normal, open, transparent and win-win global trade".

"The company believes the Canadian and United States legal systems will ultimately reach a just conclusion".

The arrest was made reportedly at the request of USA law enforcement officials.

The U.S. government has been concerned about Huawei for years because of uncertainty over its relationship with the Chinese government.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this year that US authorities are investigating whether Chinese tech giant Huawei violated sanctions on Iran. "Americans are grateful that our Canadian partners have arrested the Chief Financial Officer of a giant Chinese telecom company for breaking US sanctions against Iran".

The US later replaced the ban with a fine and governance changes.

In 2012, the House of Representatives released a report warning Huawei poses a national security threat to the US, and American companies and its government should avoid doing business with the company.

Huawei has repeatedly insisted Beijing has no influence over it.

Separately, the BBC reported that United Kingdom telco BT will not use Huawei's equipment in its 5G mobile network.

Skycom was described by Huawei as one of its "major local partners", although the Chinese company said neither it nor Skycom ultimately provided the HP equipment.

Huawei has repeatedly denied engaging in intelligence work for any government and is seeking an urgent meeting with the New Zealand government.

Over the summer, Australia also barred Huawei from providing 5G technology for wireless networks in the country over espionage fears.

Britain's BT Group said on Wednesday it was removing Huawei Technologies' equipment from the core of its existing 3G and 4G mobile operations and would not use the Chinese company in central parts of the new network.

The country has already been warned by U.S. senators against the use of Huawei in its telecommunications networks.
