    Canada has arrested the Chief Financial Officer of Huawei, the 2nd largest telecommunications company in the world, and close to the Chinese government. The CFO is the daughter of the founder

    The arrest stems from a warrant issues by the US, because Huawei violated US sanctions against Iran by shipping equipment to Iran that was US sourced.

    The Chinese government is peeved off.

    Governments all working together against us. Wasnt trump willing to ship someone off over to Russia so Putin could ask him a few questions? And didnt some guy just get sliced and diced up? That seems like not a good thing for us common folks. How long before someone gets shipped off to a foreign country to face execution for the shit they spoke about that country online? We gotta be nearing that

    I admit, this is an odd move by Canada...breaking sanctions is cause for tariffs on their products, not arresting a citizen of another country especially a major world power, for another world power.

    If she had come to the U.S. it would be different because she would be held shortly so the government can move forward with such a move.

    Love my Huawei, it's cheap and awesome and I've already made peace with the Chinese spying on me. I'd recommend it.

    This can't be good news for stock market in the morning. There goes Trump's deal with Xi. That lasted what? 72 hours?

    “If I was an American tech executive, I wouldn’t travel to China this week.”

    That’s what James Lewis, a former Commerce Department official and current director of technology policy at the think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Axios on Wednesday after Canada arrested a top executive for China’s Huawai Technologies Co. on behalf of the U.S. government.

    Lewis told Axios that “Huawei is one of the Chinese government’s pet companies,” and warned “They will retaliate and China will take hostages.”

    Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou — the daughter of the telecom giant’s founder — was arrested in Vancouver and was being prepared for extradition to the U.S. to face charges of violating sanctions against Iran.

    China immediately protested the arrest, and demanded Canada and the U.S. “rectify wrongdoings” and release her from custody, Bloomberg News reported.

    The incident may raise tensions between the U.S. and China, just days after it appeared progress had been made to ease the ongoing trade war. U.S. stock futures and Asian stock markets fell after reports of the arrest.

    The U.S. government has long worried about cybersecurity risks from Huawei equipment, and has pressed allies to stop using the company’s products. The U.S. has restricted Huawei’s business in the U.S., and earlier this year, Australia barred Huawei from its 5G mobile network, citing a security risk. In October, a Silicon Valley semiconductor startup accused Huawei of conspiring to steal its technology.

    Huawei is the world’s biggest maker of telecom equipment, and the No. 2 smartphone maker in the world, surpassing Apple Inc. during the second quarter of 2018.
