According to CCTV news, on September 30 local time, the extradition case of Meng Wanzhou ended this round of hearings in the British Columbia High Court in Vancouver, and the judge did not do so. Out of the ruling.

The hearing process on that day was relatively short and lasted more than an hour. During this round of hearings, the lawyers of both parties respectively stated their opinions in court. Meng Wanzhou’s lawyer (defense lawyer) believes that the key evidence provided by the United States lacks the most important content and also contains false statements, thus misleading the judge and an abuse of Canadian judicial procedures. Based on this fact, the judge should terminate the extradition procedure. Attorneys from the Canadian Department of Justice (prosecution lawyers) believe that the judge should make rulings and judgments on whether the conditions for extradition are sufficient, instead of judging the evidence presented by the US, and request the judge to dismiss Meng Wanzhou’s lawyer as the reason for the appeal.

Heather Holmes, the trial judge, did not rule on both parties’ claims. According to the court’s schedule, the two sides will hold several rounds of court debates, and it is expected that 2021 February will decide whether the judicial departments of Canada and the United States “abuse judicial procedures.” After that, the case will enter the third round, which is also the final round of trial and adjudication in the Provincial High Court.
