The remarks of Consul General Han Tao on the 1000-day of arbitrary detention of Ms. Meng Wanzhou by Canada
2021/08/26

Today marks 1000 days since Ms. Meng Wanzhou was arbitrarily detained by Canada.

China has stressed from the start, and it has been fully proved by facts, that the Meng Wanzhou case is purely a political incident.

The US government concocted the incident not for legal reasons, but to keep Chinese high-tech companies down and obstruct China's scientific development.

The US' fraud accusations against Ms. Meng Wanzhou are nothing but fabrication. Even HSBC, the bank accused of fraud by the US, has issued documents proving that Ms. Meng did not commit fraud.

In fact, during the trial, the Canadian judge in charge of the case questioned the fraud charges by the US against Meng Wanzhou for several times, calling these accusations "unclear" and "unusual". The Canadian prosecutors have shown self-contradictions and allegations that they cannot justify at all.

Ms. Meng Wanzhou is innocent and has not violated any Canadian law. Ms. Meng Wanzhou is a daughter to an elderly father, and a mother to young children. Canada, acting as an accomplice for the US, has groundlessly and arbitrarily detained her. This constitutes textbook coercion and human rights violation.

Recently, Global Times published an open letter to the Canadian Ambassador to China, and launched an online petition. About 15 million people have added their names to the letter in more than a week. This is public opinion. We hope Canada could hear this.

Due to the Meng Wanzhou incident, China-Canada relations are facing serious difficulties, and this does not serve the fundamental interests of the two peoples. Many Canadians with vision have been calling on the Canadian government to end the extradition of Ms. Meng Wanzhou under Canada's Extradition Act.

In order to bring the China-Canada relations back to the right track at an early date, we hope that visionary people from all walks of life in our consular district could continue to call on the Canadian government to immediately correct mistakes, and let Ms. Meng Wanzhou return to China as soon as possible.
