A CCTV footage showing the arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou at the Vancouver International Airport was released on Tuesday, following a hearing in a Canada court.

The airport security footage on the day of Meng’s arrest on December 1, last year, shows her luggage being searched by the Canada Border Service Agents (CBSA). Meng is seen being escorted by CBSA staff during her arrival at the airport where she was arrested on a US warrant. Her arrest put Canada in the centre of a diplomatic struggle between China and the United States, which sought her arrest and is seeking her extradition. The United States has since accused Meng of, among other things, fraudulently deceiving four banks to enable Huawei to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran.
