Wanzhou Meng, who also goes by Sabrina Meng, was arrested in Vancouver on Saturday, Dec. 1, Department of Justice Canada spokesperson Ian McLeod told Global News.
"She is sought for extradition by the United States", he explained.
"As there is a publication ban in effect, we can not provide any further detail at this time", McLeod said.
The Wall Street Journal reported back in April, that the USA authorities have been probing the Chinese telecommunication giant at least since 2016 for allegedly circumventing the Iranian sanctions and supplying US-origin products to the Islamic Republic.
Meng, daughter of the founder of the massive company, is being held under a provisional arrest warrant issued under the Extradition Act.
"The Chinese side has lodged stern representations with the U.S. and Canadian side, and urged them to immediately correct the wrongdoing and restore the personal freedom of Ms Meng Wanzhou".
He declined to say more about the case, citing a publication ban requested by Ms Meng and ordered by the courts.
She is reportedly sought by the U.S. for breaking trade embargo with Iran. Meng adopted her mother's surname.
