CHina celebrates return of Huawei manager meng wenzhou The Canadian arrest followed nearly three years after a diplomatic victory and as evidence of national strength. State television reported live from Shenzhen airport, where the chief financial officer of telecommunications company Huawei landed on Saturday evening and made a brief speech on the tarmac. He thanked state and party leader Xi Jinping. “President Xi is concerned about the safety of every Chinese citizen, and he also took my position to heart. He touches me deeply,” he read from his manuscript. During the “test of more than a thousand days” in Canada, “there was no moment when I did not feel the care and warmth of the Party, the Fatherland and the Chinese people,” the manager said. “If faith has a colour, it is China’s red.”
The release of the 49-year-old daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei was made possible by an agreement with the US Department of Justice. In it, the United States declares its readiness to withdraw its request for extradition to Canada against Meng Wanzhou. In return, the Manager confirms in writing that he has knowingly given HSBC Bank false information about any of the following Huawei controlled company. The United States is accusing Meng of bank fraud because its false information prompted HSBC to inadvertently violate Iran sanctions. The prosecutor in charge, Nicole Boeckman, said that with the agreement, Meng “briefly” confirmed that she and other employees had “deceived global financial institutions, the US government and the public about Huawei’s activities in Iran”. However, it is neither a confession of guilt nor a punishment.
