China News Service, Beijing, August 16 (Reporter Li Jingze) China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying reiterated at a regular press conference on the 16th that the Meng Wanzhou incident was an outright political incident.
Urge the United States to immediately revoke the arrest warrant and extradition request for Ms. Meng Wanzhou, and the Canadian side immediately corrects its mistakes.
A reporter asked. On the 12th, Canadian Presiding Judge Helms questioned the so-called fraud accusation against Meng Wanzhou by the United States, saying that such a fraud case did not cause any actual damage many years later.
Moreover, the alleged victim in this case is a large organization, and it seems that many people have knowledge of the relationship between Huawei and related companies.
Meng Wanzhou’s defense lawyer also pointed out at the extradition hearing on the 13th that the US accusations against Meng Wanzhou were fatally flawed and full of changing theories. What’s China’s comment on this?
Hua Chunying said that we have also taken note of relevant reports. The facts have already fully proved that the Meng Wanzhou incident is a complete political incident. The US accusation of Ms. Meng Wanzhou’s so-called fraud is purely fabricated, even the US accusation of fraud. HSBC also issued documents proving that Ms. Meng Wanzhou did not cheat, so the facts are very clear.
We urge the United States to immediately revoke the arrest warrant and extradition request for Ms. Meng Wanzhou. The Canadian side immediately corrects the mistake, releases Ms. Meng Wanzhou, and allows her to return to the motherland safely as soon as possible.
