Huawei CFO avoided US travel, Canadian prosecutors say

Meng Wanzhou appears in Canada court on Iran trading charges

WASHINGTON -- The arrested chief financial officer of China’s top communications equipment supplier, Huawei Technologies, likely lied to financial institutions regarding dealings with Iran to evade U.S. sanctions and should remain in custody, Canadian prosecutors argued in a Vancouver court on Friday.

Meng Wanzhou, 46, daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested on Dec. 1 in Vancouver on a trip from Hong Kong, where she resides, to Mexico.
