Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou has launched a civil lawsuit against the Canadian government and its border agency for “unlawful detention” when she was arrested in Vancouver on Dec. 1 on a U.S. arrest warrant. Her suit claims she was detained, searched, and interrogated for three hours, which violated her constitutional rights according to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The U.S. has since charged her and China’s Huawei Technologies with bank and wire fraud in an attempt to violate American sanctions against Iran. On Friday, Canada approved her extradition to the U.S. to face charges. Meng, the daughter of Huawei’s founder, is free on bail pending her extradition hearing Wednesday.
