Prime Minister Of Canada: China Does Not Seem To Understand Our Country Has An Independent Judiciary


China seems unaware that Canada's judiciary is an independent judiciary that politicians cannot interfere with or manipulate, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said May 21.

China has repeatedly asked Canada to release Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer, who is resisting extradition to the United States. Meng was previously arrested at Vancouver International Airport at the request of the United States for deceiving HSBC bank for a Huawei-owned company deal with Iran.

However, Canadian officials have repeatedly told China that they cannot interfere in the case.
Prime Minister Trudeau said at a meeting:
"Canada has a functioning independent judicial system that politicians cannot interfere with or manipulate, China does not act like us and does not seem to understand that we have an independent judiciary."
Meng's arrest of Meng has worsened its relationship with China. Shortly after Meng was arrested, Chinese authorities arrested two Canadian men in China and blocked the import of Canadian rapeseed.

On May 21, the Canadian Supreme Court of Canada said the decision on whether Meng could be extradited to the United States would be announced on May 27.
