Description

Phil asks John Philpot about the arrest of Meng Wanzhou. John explains that the extradition process is pretty straightforward, but what happened to Meng is not.

What's disturbing in the procedure in her arrest is that the CBSA and RCMP conspired to deny her rights and illegally searched her electronic devices (which they turned over to the FBI in the USA), and pressured her to reveal her passwords.

Also disturbing was the fact that the extradition was politically-motivated by US President Trump, who admitted he was using Meng as a "bargaining chip" in his trade deal with China.

Moreover, the US counsel also deliberately withheld evidence, specifically 2 slides of Meng's PowerPoint presentation to HSBC Bank.

Another issue was that HSBC may have tried to curry favour with the United States in entrapping Meng because the HSBC was in trouble with the United States government over money laundering, for which it paid an enormous fine to the United States, although no HSBC executives went to jail.

Extraterritoriality is a further issue. The crime for which Meng is charged - breaking U.S. sanctions on Iran - is not a crime in Canada.

In a further segment, Phil Taylor also comments on the improper collusion with American authorities.
