Professor Liao Fan, a research fellow at CASS Institute of International Law, was interviewed by the “Today” Program of China Radio International on December 12, 2018 about the release on bail by a Canadian court of Ms. Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. In the interview, Professor Liao discussed the following issues relating to the incident: the legal procedures after the release on bail; how to understand the claims made by the US and Canada that there was no political motive in the detention of Ms. Meng Wanzhou and US President Trump’s statement that he is not ruling out the possibility of intervening in Meng’s case; and the possibility of Ms. Meng’s case becoming a bargaining chip in the China-US trade negotiation.
