The extradition case of Chinese Huawei Treasurer Meng Wanzhou continues, with Meng’s legal team applying to submit new evidence in June and a Canadian court tentatively setting a final hearing date for the extradition case on August 3.
Canada’s Global News reports that the Supreme Court of British Columbia will hold hearings on June 29 and 30 to decide whether to accept new evidence from Meng’s legal team.
The court also confirmed that the final phase of Meng’s extradition hearing is tentatively scheduled to begin on Aug. 3, with a one-week delay if the court decides to accept the new evidence.
The final phase of the hearing, which is expected to last three weeks, will cover issues including whether Meng’s arrest was an abuse of process and whether the relevant agencies have remedied the abuse. The court will also issue a final decision on whether to extradite Meng to the United States.
