Storyline


Huawei Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou applied in a bail hearing on Tuesday to loosen the current conditions of her bail.

Meng's main appeal was to be granted to leave home no longer with the security team monitoring her. The judges of the high court of British Columbia made no rulings that day, after hearing the claims from the defense, prosecutors, and the security company. The relevant rulings could be made on Wednesday at the soonest.

In Dec 2018, Meng, 48, has been under house arrest after being released from jail under 18 conditions, including 24-hour security surveillance, wearing satellite-positioning electronic shackles, being grounded after 23:00 each day, and handing in passports. These are also the strictest bail conditions in Canada.

Meng was arrested at the Vancouver International Airport on Dec 1, 2018, by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) at the request of the United States, pursuant to the extradition treaty between Canada and the United States. Her lawyers have had more say on the extradition case with more details showing up, and Meng has a good record obeying to the bail conditions for the last two years.

Apart from the facts that support Meng's application, the defense's request to change in the conditions around surveillance and supervision, was also proposed to better adhere to the epidemic control regulations in British Columbia. The coronavirus epidemic kept worsening in Canada, while Meng still stays with her security men in one car, which could let virus more spreadable and make negative impacts on her health.

Two of the security personnel in charge of monitoring Meng did catch the coronavirus, but the security company did not tell her about it, the prosecutors disclosed. It implies the fact that the bail conditions have not taken the potential harm to Meng's health into account.

The Supreme Court of Canada passed a case affirming the bail-out principle of minimal intrusion in June, 2020. The principle regulates the interference to the applicant's life brought by the bail conditions should be contained within the minimal and necessary range.
