Huawei CFO and Detained Canadians Return Home

Share post:

Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou and two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, have all returned to their respective countries after Meng’s extradition proceedings concluded over the weekend.

Commenting on the conclusion of the lawsuit, Acting Attorney General of the Eastern District of New York Nicole Boeckmann said, “In entering into the deferred prosecution agreement, Meng has taken responsibility for her principal role in perpetrating a scheme to defraud a global financial institution. Her admissions in the statement of facts confirm that, while acting as the chief financial officer for Huawei, Meng made multiple material misrepresentations to a senior executive of a financial institution regarding Huawei’s business operations in Iran to preserve Huawei’s banking relationship with the financial institution.”

The two Canadians detained by the Chinese government for espionage and stealing state secrets from China during Meng’s arrest and trial were released and reunited with their families on Saturday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced their return via Twitter: “Welcome home, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. You’ve shown incredible strength, resilience, and perseverance. Know that Canadians across the country will continue to be here for you, just as they have been.”
