Over 2 million consumers visited Huawei store on the return of Meng Wanzhou
On September 25, Huawei‘s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Meng Wanzhou finally landed in China. However, there is a report that over 2 million consumers across the country jumped into Huawei’s Tmall store to buy Huawei products to support Huawei.
May consumers left a message to the consumer service at the Huawei store for Meng when placing an order: “Welcome Meng Wanzhoud home, Huawei, come on!” Thereafter, Huawei has been trending on the hot search tab.
Huawei Meng Wanzhou:
Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.
Huawei CFO lands China after 1028 days of detention in Canada
Huawei Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou has finally landed in China, carried on a Chinese government-chartered plane at an airport in Shenzhen after 1028 of detention in Canada. A Chinese ambassador and Huawei staff welcome the CFO back to her homeland.
This isn’t a simple welcome, it was made heroic by the Airport’s tower management and announced on the radio a message for Ms. Meng:
“The motherland will always be your strongest support. Ms. Meng Wanzhou welcomes you back!”
This is the first time when Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.
China’s foreign ministry statement:
“Facts have already fully proved that this is an incident of political persecution against Chinese citizens, with the purpose of suppressing China’s high-tech enterprises. The accusation of Ms. Meng Wanzhou’s so-called “fraud” is purely fabricated. The actions of the United States and Canada are typical arbitrary detentions.” said China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.
The story continues as meng also delivered a returning keynote on her return after a long time to the people. She said the long wait in an overseas country is full of struggle and suffering. On the other hand, now the temperature of her hometown is making her unspeakable.
“Motherland i am back” said Meng
On December 1, 2028, Canadian police detained Huawei CFO while she was transiting at an airport in Vancouver, Canada. Subsequently, the Canadian Ministry of Justice held a press conference to announce the news of Meng Wanzhou’s arrest.
In March 2019, Canada approved Meng Wanzhou’s extradition order to the United States. Since then, Huawei has sued the Canadian government for the arrest of Meng Wanzhou.
On May 27, 2020, the Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled that the Meng Wanzhou case met the double criminality principle of extradition requirements and decided not to release.
On August 18, 2021, the trial of Meng Wanzhou’s extradition case in the British Columbia High Court was all concluded, and the judge did not immediately announce the verdict. The judge decided to hold a meeting on October 21 and agreed to announce the date of the verdict.
On September 25, 2021, after a deal with the U.S. regarding the latest settlement on the case, Meng Wanzhou left Canada on a chartered plane by the Chinese government and reached her homeland.
