China Summons Canadian Envoy to Protest Huawei Executive's Arrest

Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Vancouver last Saturday and charged with fraud for telling UK-based banking company HSBC that the Chinese tech giant was in full compliance with US sanctions against Iran in 2013.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry has summoned Canadian Ambassador to China John McCallum to issue a "strong protest" over Meng's arrest.
Calling Meng's detention "extremely nasty," the Chinese Foreign Ministry urged Ottawa to release the Huawei official immediately, warning that there would be "consequences" if Canada refused to do so.
 US prosecutors have charged Huawei's chief financial officer with fraud, saying she had used at least seven passports in 11 years.
American officials are attempting to prevent Meng Wanzhou from being bailed from a Canadian court after she was charged with conspiracy to defraud multiple financial institutions between 2009 and 2014.
It is alleged the 46-year-old used Hong Kong company Skycom to access the Iranian market in deals that violated US sanctions.
