The Huawei Test Case

 

Comes now the biggest and most significant test case

of the much-vaunted American Sanction.

Meng Wanzhou, Chief Financial Officer of Huawei,

and daughter to the founder of this

 very promising electronics company,

was taken into custody by the Canadian Justice Department

in preparation for extradition to the US.

Meng is charged by the US of

violating the US sanctions on Iran.

IMO, since when has it been that the US sanction,

or any sanction by any country,

is enforceable as a criminal offense and as such

deserve imprisonment by the sanctioning country?

By any dictionary which one might use,

the definition of SANCION is simply

the  REMOVAL OF CONSENT, a RESTRAINT,

DISAPPROVAL, or Deem UNAUTHORIZED

those procedures or actions as may be specified.

SANCTION is not a BLOCKADE

 that is legally enforceable with troops or police.

Violating sanctions is not a crime.

The rights of Meng Wanzhou have been violated

when she was taken into custody.

SANCTION may be enforced by economic or political means

but not thru the courts of law or by weapons.

Clearly the Americans are testing how the world

may treat the US sanctions on any country or person.

Also under test is the extradition treaty

between Canada and the US.

(who is paying for the Canadian prosecutors and how much?)
