Huawei Improperly Helping CFO Meng Fight Extradition, U.S. Says​


Lawyers for Huawei Technologies Co. are violating a court order by sharing documents from the company’s sanctions-violations case in New York with Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou for use in her fight against extradition from Canada, U.S. prosecutors claim.



U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly in Brooklyn, New York, had ruled that thousands of pages of classified documents turned over by the U.S. government to Huawei’s defense lawyers couldn’t be shared with anyone in China or with Meng, but federal prosecutors said Wednesday that recent filings by the CFO in her extradition case show she’s had access to them.





“Huawei is circumventing the restrictions properly established in the U.S. criminal case,” and using the evidence materials “to assist Meng in her repeated attempts to conduct a trial on the merits in Canada,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Alexander Solomon said in a letter filed with the court.



David Bitkower, a lawyer for Huawei, didn’t immediately return calls and emails seeking comment about the U.S. claims. Huawei’s U.S. defense lawyers have long complained about insufficient disclosure of evidence from prosecutors.



Brooklyn federal prosecutors charged the Chinese tech giant and its CFO with fraud in 2019, alleging they lied to HSBC Holdings Plc about Huawei’s relationship with another company, Skycom, that was doing business in Iran as part of a scheme to violate U.S. trade sanctions on that country.

Canadian Hearings​

Huawei has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Meng, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested in December 2018 in Vancouver, where hearings on her challenge to the U.S. extradition request are currently underway and are expected to continue until May. Under U.S. law, she isn’t entitled to see any evidence until she appears in court in Brooklyn.

Solomon said portions of the restricted documents were reflected in a number of recent filings by Meng in Vancouver, including one in which she made “unsupported and speculative allegations” that U.S. authorities had misled their Canadian counterparts.

Huawei’s actions “violate both the letter and spirit of the protective orders entered into in this case, and reflect that Huawei’s counsel is acting as Meng’s extradition counsel and impermissibly using the government’s discovery in this case to help Meng fight extradition from Canada,” the prosecutor said.

美國政府指華為違背法庭禁令 稱公司律師不當幫助孟晚舟打引渡官司​

【彭博】-- 代表美國政府的檢察官聲稱,華為技術有限公司的律師違反法庭命令,與首席財務官孟晚舟共享其在紐約違反制裁令案件的文件,供她用於在加拿大的反引渡官司。
紐約布魯克林的聯邦地區法官Ann Donnelly此前裁定,美國政府提交給華為辯護律師的數千頁機密文件不能與在中國的任何人或孟晚舟共享,但聯邦檢察官周三聲稱,這位首席財務官最近在其引渡案中提交的文件顯示她已經可以接觸到這些資料。
「華為正在規避美國刑事案件中正當設置的限制」,並使用證據材料「來協助孟晚舟在加拿大反覆嘗試以此為基礎進行審判,」 助理聯邦檢察官Alexander Solomon在提交法庭的信中說。
華為的律師David Bitkower暫未回覆尋求就此置評的電話和電子郵件。該公司的美國辯護律師長期以來一直抱怨控方證據披露不充分。
檢察官說,華為的行為「從文字到精神上都違背了此案中保護令,並反映了華為的律師也在充當孟晚舟引渡案的律師,並在此案中不當地利用政府的發現來幫助孟晚舟與加拿大的引渡作鬥爭」。
