New evidence is to be released in the extradition case next month, said by the lawyers of Huawei's CFO. During a brief meeting, a B.C. Supreme Court judge set June 29 and 30 for a hearing over whether the evidence will be accepted in Meng Wanzhou's case.
Assuming that the evidence is accepted, the date set by the court for the extradition case's final leg of proceedings on Aug. 3 could be moved back a week.
The hearing, which could last up to three weeks, will include arguments over whether Meng was subjected to an abuse of procedure, the remedy for the alleged abuse, and the actual committal hearing to decide whether or not she should be extradited to the United States.
At the request of the U.S., Meng was arrested at Vancouver’s airport, where she is wanted on suspicion of bank fraud, which she and Huawei both deny. Meng’s team said that they obtained documents through a Hong Kong court related to the case and need time to review them, which is why the final leg of hearings was delayed.
