Lawyers for Huawei's chief financial officer won a court battle when a judge asked Canada's attorney general to hand over more evidence and documents relating to the arrest of Meng Wanzhou. However, the Supreme Court of British Columbia cautioned that the ruling released on Tuesday is limited and does not address the merit of Huawei's allegations that Canadian authorities improperly handled identifying information about Meng's electronic devices.

But Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes agreed with Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's legal team that there is an "air of reality" to their assertion. Meng, 47, was arrested at the Vancouver International Airport on Dec. 1, 2018, at the request of the United States, where she is charged with bank fraud and accused of misleading the bank HSBC about Huawei Technologies' business in Iran. She has said she is innocent and is fighting extradition.

She was questioned by immigration authorities prior to her arrest, and her lawyers have asked the government to hand over more documents about her arrest. Meng's legal team has contested her extradition in the Canadian courts on the grounds that the United States is using her extradition for economic and political gain, and that she was unlawfully detained, searched and interrogated by Canadian authorities acting on behalf of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
