Huawei's Meng 'no longer fears unknown' despite 'torment, struggle' of previous year

Huawei's Meng 'no longer fears unknown' despite 'torment, struggle' of previous year

The friendliness of the Canadians had also "touched her deeply", she said.

Their conditions have been described as harsh - the men are subjected to six to eight hours of interrogation a day, are not allowed to go outside and instead spend their time in prison cells where the light is kept on 24 hours a day.

Ren says Meng's detainment has introduced them nearer than ever earlier than.

In the letter, which was written in English and posted on the company's website on Sunday, Meng said that living under house arrest, while hard, has allowed her to slow the pace of her life - read a book from cover to cover, complete an oil painting.

"I always felt like I was being stretched thin and that there was never enough time to get everything done". If anything, the level of "passion and support" offered by crowds waiting outside the courtroom, delivery workers bringing takeout to Huawei officers, customers and suppliers has given her "the fortitude I need to work even harder", she added. "I can take the time to debate trivialities with my colleagues or to fastidiously full an oil portray".

"Thanks to the kindness of the prison staff and other inmates of the Alouette Correctional Center for Women, I was able to survive the worst days of my life", she wrote.

Meng was arrested previous year by Canadian authorities in Vancouver, at the behest of USA authorities, who have charged her with fraud and allegations of violating sanctions placed on Iran. She denies any wrongdoing and is now free on bail, under conditions that include wearing an electronic tracking device and spending overnight periods at her home in Vancouver.

Canada has previously declared the arrests of Spavor and Kovrig "arbitrary".

The 2 Canadians have been detained in December, shortly after Ms Weng was detained.

Their detention led to a diplomatic and trade row, with China blocking tens millions of dollars' worth of Canadian pork and vegetable oil exports.

They have been formally arrested in May, and might be held for as much as 13-and-a-half-months earlier than costs are filed, the Canadian authorities says.

"Particularly, I expressed my concern and the priority of all Canadians concerning the circumstances of their detention", Francois-Philippe Champagne said.

"These two circumstances they're very a lot totally different in nature", he stated.

Canada, meanwhile, enlisted the support of allies such as Britain, France, Germany, the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to press for the release of its two citizens.

The two leaders came to an understanding and a truce was signed - but thousands of miles away in Canada, a new battle was just beginning. "In the fight between the two nations, she became a bargaining chip", said Ren.Huawei is at the centre of the US-China trade war.

Beijing has charged them with espionage and denies that their arrests are related to Meng's case. If Huawei is the crown jewel of Chinese tech, then Ms Meng is its princess.
