The details of the charges have yet to be put.

Meng faces charges of bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit both bank fraud and wire fraud.

This is a bit of a placeholder, as details are hard to come by right now but the essential piece of an extraction request, that it be a crime in both jurisdictions, appears to be made out.

I will post more as it becomes available.

Canada has announced that an extradition hearing against Meng Wanzhou, the embattled executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei, can move forward.

"Today, Department of Justice Canada officials issued an authority to proceed, formally commencing an extradition process in the case of Ms. Meng Wanzhou," read a statement from the federal department.
Friday's authority to proceed marks the first step in the extradition process. Meng is due in B.C. Supreme Court next Wednesday to set a date for the extradition hearing.

Even though courts in the province can now move forward with her extradition hearings, it could be a long time before Meng is sent to the U.S. — if at all.

Extradition cases can stretch on for years, winding in and out of court with many avenues for appeal. In deciding on Meng's bail, B.C. Supreme Court Justice William Ehrcke cited two such cases that dragged on for a decade or more.

And
Meng Wanzhou has filed a civil claim against members of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the RCMP and the federal government, alleging "serious breaches of her constitutional rights" when she was detained, searched and interrogated at Vancouver International Airport in December.

In the claim, filed Friday in B.C. Supreme Court, the embattled Huawei CFO says she is seeking damages for "misfeasance in public office and false imprisonment." It says Meng was held for three hours without explanation and without access to a lawyer before an RCMP constable told her why she was arrested.

It alleges that Meng has suffered "mental distress, anxiety, and loss of liberty" as a direct result of her detention at the airport.

I do not find everything Tump does bad. He is absolutely right that China was ripping us off for years. I have not heard him say so much about the surveillance threat but of course one hand washes the other!

We will have to wait and see what he does about the ramped FISA abuse including its use to attack him.
