Huawei executive Meng seeks eased bail terms on coronavirus fears

China Daily | Updated: 2021-01-14 00:00

An executive for Chinese tech giant Huawei facing extradition to the United States on alleged fraud charges on Tuesday asked a Canadian court to ease her bail conditions, citing fears she may get infected with COVID-19.

Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou's husband Liu Xiaozong, speaking in English with the aid of an interpreter, testified on the stand that Meng is fearful of catching the coronavirus from her security guards, which were ordered by a judge for the duration of her extradition fight.

He said she may be "at increased risk from COVID-19" because of her hypertension and past thyroid cancer surgery.
