Huawei exec's next court date in Canada set for May 8

Huawei exec's next court date in Canada set for May 8Meng Wanzhou, the Chinese telecom executive at the center of an escalating row between Ottawa and Beijing, appeared briefly before a Canadian judge on Wednesday who set May 8 for the start of a hearing into a US extradition request. Meng’s arrest in Vancouver in December on a US warrant infuriated China, which arrested two Canadians days later in what was widely seen as retaliation. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday he was “very concerned” over reports from Chinese state news agency Xinhua that the Canadians, including a former diplomat, were suspected of espionage.
