It seems that Trump’s already temporary truce with China in an escalating trade war only got a day or two to cool off there. Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, also known by the names Sabrina Meng and Cathy Meng, was arrested in Vancouver, Canada, on December 1. On December 6, five days later, it seems that the businesswoman may be extradited back to the U.S. where she could face charges.

As reported by CNN Business, Meng is set for a bail hearing on Friday in Canada, according to Canadian Justice Department spokesman Ian McLeod.

Unfortunately, McLeod declined to share any details about the case or the sudden arrest. This comes after a judge agreed to grant Meng a publication ban, meaning that neither the police nor prosecutors are allowed to publicly share any details about the case.
