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.
