Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou will have charges dropped in 2022 for allegedly defrauding HSBC bank
The United States agreed to effectively drop charges against Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou deferring prosecution against her until late 2022, after which point the charges could be dropped. The deal will allow her to return to China, and could bring to an end a nearly three-year legal saga that has complicated relations between the United States, China and Canada, according to multiple news reports.
In response, China released two Canadian citizens it had been holding on unrelated charges since Meng was arrested. The two businessmen, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, had been held in China since 2018, soon after Canada detained Meng Wanzhou of Huawei.
