She's starting to look more and more like a hostage

Trump's comments on Huawei extradition could help Meng's case

Donald Trump is talking about wading into the legal fight of Huawei Technologies Co. Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, who is facing extradition to the U.S. from Canada -- and may be helping her case.

Trump said Tuesday in an interview with Reuters that he would intervene in U.S. efforts to extradite Meng if it helped him win a trade deal with China.

“Meng’s lawyers could use Trump’s remarks as evidence to argue that the prosecution against her is politicized, and they could ask for a stay of proceedings on the basis of abuse of process (via the extradition judge) or ask the Minister not to surrender her,” Robert Currie, a law professor at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, who specializes in extradition law, said in an email.
