Five things to know: Meng Wanzhou's extradition hearing

Huawei says it trusts in Canada justice

VANCOUVER -- The lawyer for Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou called the case against her an "artifice" on Monday, at the start of a hearing of her case which has strained relations between Ottawa and Beijing and that will decide whether she will be extradited to the U.S. to face charges of fraud and sanctions-breaking.

The Canadian judge will consider evidence after five days of hearings, but a final decision could take weeks, or months. Huawei said in a statement on Monday that the company stood behind Meng. "We trust in Canada's judicial system, which will prove Ms. Meng's innocence," it said.
