Michael Kovrig is canadian and works at a think tank, which conducts research for peaceful solutions to global conflicts. Kovrig, a China expert, he had represented his country as a Diplomat in Beijing, Hong Kong and at the United Nations. According to his employer, the International Crisis Group, he was taken in China. Kovrig itself the victim of a wind-up is likely to end the global crisis. It is possible that it has taken the Chinese government as a hostage. The reason: the arrest of a Manager of the Chinese technology group Huawei on 1. December in Vancouver, Canada.
Meng Wanzhou is the chief financial officer of Huawei, the world’s largest supplier of digital networks and the second-largest Smartphone producer, at the same time the daughter of the company founder. Their arrest was at the Request of the United States – ironically, on the day that Donald Trump in Buenos Aires was sitting at Dinner with China’s President Xi Jinping to discuss a solution to the trade dispute.
Meng is accused of fraud on the part of the U.S. Department of justice: you have personally denied to U.S. banks, that a company called Skycom had to do in Hong Kong, something to do with Huawei, although Skycom is a Huawei offshoot. Skycom is sold as a shell company between 2009 to 2014 equipment to Iran against U.S. sanctions violate. The Department of justice in Washington wants to extradition, therefore, Mengs in the United States. Your up to 30 years in prison for “conspiracy to commit fraud by financial institutions are at risk of a conviction in theory”. The arrest warrant against Meng is not new, it was issued by the U.S. Department of justice in August.
The point of view of the KP-leadership
On Tuesday, a court in Vancouver just told us that Meng against a Deposit of ten million canadian Dollar for the time being. You must submit, among other things, their passports, a GPS tracking device to wear and round-the-clock by a security guard to supervise, you will have to pay. The extradition process against the 46-Year-old is due to start only at the beginning of February 2019. It’s been months, maybe years. At this time, expected to trade talks between the United States and China are in an important Phase. This is essential: In the US, bipartisan consensus that China’s ruling Communist party (CP) technology anti-theft operate, the key industries being subsidised by the state and at the same time, U.S. companies in China at a disadvantage. The USA want to stop this.
From the point of view of China’s management of the Meng case should be clear: The time of your arrest, your celebrities, the international importance of the company Huawei, the dräuende trade dispute with Washington – Meng must be a victim of anti-Chinese policy of the Americans (and their allies, Canada). Only the public attacks from Beijing are currently not against the USA but almost only against the politically and economically weaker Canada. The reason is that China’s leadership does not want to at the Moment, no escalation of relations with Washington, the trade charge calls. Trump threatens high tariffs on Chinese Goods. China’s President Xi Jinping wants to prevent absolutely, and that’s why a Deal with Trump close.
In the logic of the KP-policy is also political because, in their view, a word of Canada’s Premier Justin Trudeau should be enough to let Meng Wanzhou to China to leave the country. In China, the judiciary is controlled by the KP, many of the squad can not understand (or believe) that a court can be independent from politics. “Extradition requests are not processed at the level of Officials, we will not interfere,” says Canada’s Minister of foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland in the Interview with the FAZ, to the harsh allegations from Beijing against their government.
How much China’s political Elite, the arrest Mengs hits, showed the extreme public attacks against Canada, even before the arrest of Michael Korvigs was known. Even against the Background of that propagandistic attacks against foreign countries in China are always inwardly directed messages, the nationalist feelings of support and to show that the Communist party of China has the situation in hand.
