Diba Majzub: Border and Rcmp

diba majzub: Border officers seized Meng's cellphones, tablet and other devices and wrote down her passcodes on a piece of paper that they handed to the RCMP when she was arrested, according to CTV. The border agency later realized it had made a mistake and told the RCMP the codes could not be used or shared because they'd been obtained during a CBSA examination, a Crown lawyer said. Officers with the Canada Border Services Agency questioned Meng for three hours at Vancouver's airport before the RCMP executed a provisional arrest warrant on Dec. 1, 2018. The fact of an error in the process is not an air of reality that the process was a sham, Diba Majzub told a British Columbia Supreme Court judge. Meng's arrest has sparked a diplomatic crisis between Canada and China. The Chinese tech giant's chief financial officer was arrested at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition on fraud charges linked to the alleged violation of sanctions against Iran.
