VANCOUVER -- Wearing a black dress, stiletto heels and a GPS-monitoring ankle bracelet, Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou walked into Courtroom 20 at the British Columbia Supreme Court on a rainy Monday morning for the first day of her extradition hearing.

Escorted by security guards, Meng and her translator took their seats behind a wall of bullet-proof glass in the "prisoner box" and waited for opening arguments to begin. Her husband, Liu Xiaozong, sat in the second row of spectators outside the glass wall.
