Meng, the daughter of the founder of the smartphone company, is now on bail pending a possible extradition to America for violating USA sanctions against Iran.

Canada has also enacted sanctions against Iran - many countries have, as part of a campaign to pressure Iran into abandoning its nuclear ambitions - but Meng's lawyers argue that the Canadian sanctions in force at the time of Meng's arrest were not equivalent to the American sanctions.

Meng was detained previous year at the instigation of the USA authorities in Vancouver.

"In the past, Meng Wanzhou might not give me a single call in a whole year", Ren said.

Ms Meng wrote that life on bail passed "so slow that I have enough time to read a book from cover to cover".

"I all the time felt like I used to be being stretched skinny and that there was by no means sufficient time to get every thing carried out". "She wouldn't predict of how I became, and even send me a textual dispute material message", Ren stated. "I can take the time to discuss minutiae with my colleagues or to carefully complete an oil painting", she said of her time under arrest.Do you work at Huawei? She also thanks the members of the public who have supported her through the extradition process. Her case is due to be heard in January.

Meng denies misconduct and the allegations were not examined in court.

Ren stated he would not know the important functions of Kovrig and Spavor's arrests, collectively with that he's in no space to comment on the distress.

In September, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused China of "using arbitrary detention as a tool to achieve political goals".

And final month, Canada's new global affairs minister advised his Chinese language counterpart the 2 males's case was his "absolute precedence".

"In particular, I expressed my concern and the concern of all Canadians regarding the conditions of their detention", Francois-Philippe Champagne said.

Shortly after her arrest, China arrested two Canadians for threatening national security, a move generally considered as retribution.

China's ambassador to Canada, Cong Peiwu, also accused Canada of "arbitrarily detaining [Meng Wanzhou], which violates her legitimate rights". "For those two Canadian citizens there is no arbitrary arrest at all".

The two leaders came to an understanding and a truce was signed - but thousands of miles away in Canada, a new battle was just beginning.

Meng Wanzhou, CFO Chinese giant Huawei Technology, has been called the face of the trade war between the USA and China.

On the first anniversary of Meng Wanzhou's arrest at the Vancouver airport, the Huawei executive has released an open letter thanking supporters for standing behind her.

"We expect (Meng) to go back to China safe and sound at an early date", he said.

A Chinese language Huawei govt who was arrested in Canada a 12 months in the past, and now cannot go away the nation, has revealed particulars of her life on bail.
