VANCOUVER (Reuters) – A bail hearing for the chief financial officer of China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd was adjourned until Monday, after

she appeared in a court in Vancouver following her arrest in Canada at the behest of the United States.

Meng Wanzhou, 46, who is also the daughter of the Huawei founder, was arrested as part of a U.S. investigation on Dec. 1 as she was changing planes in Vancouver, British Columbia.

During Friday’s five-hour long hearing, she faced U.S. accusations that she covered up her company’s links to a firm that tried to sell equipment to Iran despite U.S. sanctions, a Canadian prosecutor said.
