“Allegations against Meng Wanzhou are as fake as a Canadian 3-dollar bill,” say protesters in the photograph below.
As evidence indicates the United States justice and national security computer networks are being watched in real time and even controlled by the Kremlin, America’s allegation that Huawei represents a computer security threat to the foolish, racist Anglo Five Eyes cult, America is looking as foolish as Donald Trump.
Donald Trump told Reuters almost two years ago that he might use the Meng kidnap as a bargaining trade-off for trade concessions from China.
“If I think it’s good for the country, if I think it’s good for what will be certainly the largest trade deal ever made – which is a very important thing – what’s good for national security – I would certainly intervene if I thought it was necessary,” Trump said in a wide-ranging interview with Reuters in the Oval Office.
Trump’s China-alleged lapdog, in Ottawa, Justin Trudeau is not helping Canada look any better as the country pursues vigorously a bogus claim that Sabrina Meng Wanzhou has somehow committed a fraud in China which it somehow disingenuously believes is within its jurisdiction, suggests the China foreign affairs ministry.
Meng is accused of allegedly making a presentation to HSBC bank in Hong Kong, China. The presentation purports to help a company in China sell used computers to Iranian school kids in violation of America’s globally contested sanctions that are starving Iranian children.
“Among the key components of law enforcement, is criminal intent; criminal action; and the breaking of a law in the jurisdiction of the enforcer,” says Simon Baldock, an Israeli security analyst. “This is far outside America’s jurisdiction,” he added.
“And just because America has a law that prohibits Americans from certain conduct in America doesn’t mean that it can compel nationals of other nations in their own countries to abide. In fact, it is absurd. The world would be an awful mess if all countries did that,” said Baldock.
The alleged crime did not admittedly occur in USA Jurisdiction
The allegation made by the Trump administration against Meng Wanzhou is that she failed to disclose the relationship between a potential vendor, Skycom and her company, Huawei, to which she is the Chief Financial Officer and by all accounts the successor to the Chief Executive Officer who is her father but whom will soon retire.
In a page of the presentation made to the HSBC Bank that the applicant for extradition failed to disclose but that was part of the PowerPoint presentation that HSBC received, the relationship between the two firms was set out transparently.
And finally, an argument that Meng’s lawyers are adamant about, the United States is claiming a long-arm jurisdiction that reaches into China where the HSBC/Huawei meeting took place. According to Ministry of Foreign Affairs Officials in Beijing, the United States does not have legal jurisdiction for law enforcement in any part of China, including Hong Kong.
According to the China side, “legal documents posted on the official website of the US Department of Justice (DoJ) on January 24, 2019 show that Meng had an in-person meeting, which took place on 22 August 2013, with HSBC – referred to as Financial Institution 1 executive in the document. During the meeting, Meng spoke in Chinese, relying in part on a PowerPoint presentation written in Chinese. Upon HSBC’s request, Meng arranged for an English-language version of the presentation to be delivered to HSBC.
“The presentation – which was later handed over to the DoJ by HSBC, and which the DoJ alleges contained ‘numerous misrepresentations’ – played a key role in the US allegations against Meng.
Meanwhile, HSBC was trapped in a money laundering case in Mexico that has become a dark chapter in the company’s history. That fact allowed the DoJ to appoint an independent monitor to supervise its process of compliance [and perhaps compel the lies being told by HSBC?]”

Zhao Lijian, spokesperson of the Ministry of China’s Foreign Affairs, said last week “that relevant documents disclosed by the Canadian court once again showed that arresting Meng Wanzhou is a completely political maneuver, exposing the US’ political plot to deliberately suppress Huawei and Chinese high-tech enterprises, and showed that Canada has played the role of an accomplice to the US.”
“We once again urge the Canadian side to take seriously China’s solemn position and concerns, immediately release Meng Wanzhou and let her return to China safely,” Zhao added.

Below video is the English version of the Chinese PowerPoint Presentation made to HSBC in China 22 August 2013.
“Canada’s rebuke of women in the boardroom is an extension of Donald Trump’s atrocious misogyny,” says Katie Alsop of the global women’s rights group, the RINJ Women.
“American courts would be better served, as would be the American people, by bringing charges against Donald Trump instead of wasting time battering a Chinese princess, the future CEO of Huawei Technologies,” she added.
Watch video above which shows the USA extradition evidence against Meng Wanzhou, a PowerPoint presentation—a ‘canned presentation’ produced in 2011—later shown to HSBC Bank on 22 August 2013.
The PowerPoint before the Vancouver Court clearly sets out that: “As a business partner of Huawei, Skycom works with Huawei in sales and service in Iran. Huawei conducts normal business activities in Iran and provides civilian telecommunications solutions in line with global standards (e.g., ITU/3GPP) and export control requirements of the US and the EU. Huawei works with local suppliers, distributors and carriers in strict compliance with its well-established business conduct guidelines.”
