China demands US drop Huawei extradition request with Canada

China on Tuesday demanded the U.S. drop a request that Canada extradite a top executive of the tech giant Huawei, shifting blame to Washington in a case that has severely damaged Beijing's relations with Ottawa.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Meng Wanzhou's case was out of the ordinary and Canada's extradition treaty with the U.S. infringed on the "safety and legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens."

Hua said China demands that the U.S. withdraw the arrest warrant against Meng and "not make a formal extradition request to the Canadian side."


Is this unsuspected? Should one wonder about how many trademark applications that any of the "Team Trump" members have pending in China? Wouldn't it be simpler to just proceed with an incredibly bad and unsubstantiated case in support of extradition, lose the application, fire the junior lawyer who had presented the application, allow the woman to go free, and then blame the whole thing on Canada (and an unsubstantiated allegation that the "Clinton Cabal" has sabotaged the whole thing)?

Oh well, six working days to go.
