US Judge Dismisses Indictment Against Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou

The judge dismisses the indictment against Meng on bank fraud and other charges. She was arrested in Canada in 2018 on a U.S. warrant.

  • The case has strained U.S.-China relations since Meng’s arrest in 2018.
  • Meng struck a deal with the prosecutors in 2021 for the charges against her to be dismissed on December 1, 2022, four years from the date of her arrest in Canada on a U.S. warrant.
  • “With no information that Meng violated the deal, “the government respectfully moves to dismiss the third superseding indictment in this case as to defendant Wanzhou Meng”, Brooklyn US Attorney Carolyn Pokorny wrote in a letter Thursday to U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly.
