Huawei Chief's Extradition Process Kicks Off

Canada has said it will permit the US removal body of evidence
against Huawei's CEO to push ahead, yet the court must settle on a ultimate choice.

The US needs Meng Wanzhou, Huawei CFO, to stand preliminary on charges including extortion connected to the supposed infringement of assents on Iran.
Ms Meng was arrested in Canada in December at the request of the US.

China said the case against Ms Meng was an "abuse of the bilateral extradition treaty" between Canada and the US.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Kang said allowing the extradition hearing to go ahead was a "political incident".

China expressed its "strong dissatisfaction" and "resolute opposition" to the extradition proceedings, he said.

The high-profile detention has soured relations between China, the US and Canada.

US authorities filed almost two dozen charges against Huawei, the world's second largest smartphone maker, and Ms Meng in January, along with a formal request for her extradition.

The charges include bank fraud, obstruction of justice and theft of technology. Huawei and Ms Meng have both denied all the allegations.
