The first phase of the Meng Wanzhou extradition hearing comes to a close. The final day saw the defense reply to arguments presented by Canadian prosecutors. This week's arguments focused on the test of double criminality, and whether Meng's alleged conduct is also a crime in Canada. The U.S. has charged Huawei's chief financial officer with fraud over allegations that she misled HSBC bank about Huawei's relationship with an Iran-based subsidiary putting the bank at risk of violating American sanctions against Iran. At the end of this phase of the hearing, the judge, Justice Heather Holmes, said she would reserve judgment. If she decides the test of double criminality has been met the hearing will continue with court dates in April, June and September already penciled in.
