Arrested Huawei CFO Sues Canada Alleging Breach of Constitutional Rights

Detained Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou now claims that Canada subjected her to detention, interrogation and search without telling her she was under arrest.

Wanzhou, CFO of Chinese tech company Huawei, arrested in Canada, has filed a lawsuit against Canadian officials, claiming her constitutional rights were violated during the arrest.

The lawsuit, filed in Canada's Supreme Court against federal government branches the Canadian Border Services Agency and the Royal Crown Mounted Police, asserts that "under the guise of a routine border check, unlawfully subjected [Meng] to detention, search and interrogation to extract evidence from her before she was arrested and provided with her rights under the Charter."

The lawsuit seeks damages for "misfeasance in public office and false imprisonment based on alleged multiple failures of those Canadian government officials to comply with the rule of law," the statement said," a statement by her lawyers, Gudmundseth Mickelson LLP.
