China News Service, Vancouver, May 28th: A spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in Canada issued a statement addressing the local court ruling regarding the “double criminality” issue of Chinese citizen Meng Wanzhou. The Chinese Embassy emphasizes its solemn representations to Canada on this matter.
The spokesman emphasized again that the United States and Canada have abused the bilateral extradition treaty and adopted arbitrary coercive measures against Chinese citizens, which seriously violated the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens. The purpose of the US is to suppress Chinese high-tech enterprises and Huawei. Canada played the role of “an accomplice” to the US. This was a serious political event.
The spokesman emphasized that the Chinese government ’s determination to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of its citizens and enterprises is unwavering. China once again urges Canada to take China ’s solemn position and concerns seriously and immediately release Ms. Meng Wanzhou and let her return to China safely, and not to go further on the wrong path.
The British Columbia High Court in Vancouver, Canada, issued a ruling on the so-called “double criminality” case of Meng Wanzhou on May 27, and concluded that the United States’ extradition request of Meng Wanzhou met the “double criminality” principle.
