- China is furious, the markets are beside themselves, and after a pretty ordinary performance by her lawyers on the second day of a bail hearing, the daughter of one of China’s richest men is waiting in a Canadian jail for what might be a long time. Here’s the latest in the arrest of Huawei’s Meng “Sabrina” Wanzhou.
- Meng, detained on December 1, while changing flights on her way to Mexico will have to wait until Tuesday to find out her immediate prospects of freedom.
- The 46-year-old Meng, rumoured to be called “the Princess'” inside Huawei, has been accused of covering up Huawei’s violation of US sanctions against Iran for as many as five years.
- Since the news of her arrest, global stock markets have fallen, China’s state-curated social media has erupted in indignation, and Chinese and US officials have scrambled to understand what it all means for a trade truce that looks more and more unlikely.
- Huawei has appointed the company’s Chairman Liang Hua as acting CFO, to replace Meng.
