Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou of China granted $10 million bail by Canada judge, awaits US extradition hearing

A judge in Canada today granted $10 million bail for Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of China electronics giant Huawei. She has to remain in the Vancouver area, where she has a home. The United States has requested her extradition. China is not happy. Huawai's response follows.



Meng Wanzhou could be extradited to the US to face fraud charges linked to the alleged violation of sanctions on Iran.

A judge in Vancouver set her bail at C$10m (£6m; $7.4m) including C$7m in cash.

Meng was arrested in Vancouver on 1 December. Her detention has angered China and threatened to worsen its trade war with the US.

Here is Huawei's official statement on her release, which came out around 6pm ET Tuesday.
