NEW YORK -- Lawyers for Meng Wanzhou argued that U.S. prosecutors have provided a litany of misstatements and misleading information to the Canadian authorities, as the extradition trial of Huawei's chief financial officer reached its final stretch on Wednesday.

After over two years of legal battles, Meng was back in court in Vancouver for a last round of hearings, which could continue until Aug. 20. The trial comes against a backdrop of intense pressure from China on the U.S. to drop the case, which it says is politically motivated.
