Sabrina Meng Arrest
On 1st December 2018, while transferring planes at Vancouver International Airport, Meng was arrested by Canadian authorities at the request of the United States. The charges against her were not immediately made public, but the US Justice Department has been investigating Huawei for violating US sanctions against Iran. She faces extradition to the US. The Chinese embassy in Canada issued a statement strongly condemning her arrest, calling it a violation of Sabrina Meng’s human rights.
Huawei is a successful brand internationally, however, it has faced difficulties and cybersecurity concerns selling in some markets such as the US. There have been allegations that its equipment may contain backdoors that could enable unauthorised surveillance by the Chinese government and by the People’s Liberation Army (citing, in particular, its founder having previously worked for the Army). While the company has argued that its products posed “no greater cybersecurity risk” than those of any other vendors, Huawei stated in April 2018 that it would largely pull out of the U.S. market, due to the scrutiny having impacted its activity. In August 2018, U.S. federal government entities were banned from purchasing Huawei or ZTE equipment.
