Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou returns to Shenzhen after 3-year illegal detention in Canada

Meng Wanzhou, Huawei Chief Financial Officer who has been detained in Canada for nearly three years, returned to Shenzhen City in south China’s Guangdong Province on Saturday night on a charter flight organized by the Chinese government.

After a flight of more than 10 hours, the charter plane came to a smooth stop on the tarmac, with the five-star red flag on the fuselage standing out and eye-catching.

Meng walked down the gangway amid loud cheers of “welcome home” and applause.

After nearly three years of separation, Meng walked towards the crowd with tears in her eyes as she set foot on the land of her motherland. She made a deep bow, and all her homesickness and gratitude overflowed at that moment.

“President Xi [Jinping] cares about the safety of each and every Chinese citizen, including me, and had kept my plight on his mind. I am deeply moved by this. We have the motherland’s strongest backing. Only when the motherland prospers can enterprises develop steadily, and people can live happily and healthily. I want to say that wherever the five-star red flag is, there is a beacon of faith. If faith has color, it must be Chinese red!” said Meng.

The Chinese ambassador to Canada accompanied Meng on her arrival in Shenzhen. Meng’s family and colleagues, officials of Guangdong Province and Shenzhen City and officials of China’s Foreign Ministry welcomed her at the airport.

On Dec 1, 2018, Canadian authorities detained Meng for no reason while she was in transit at Vancouver International Airport. It is a downright political frame-up, a political persecution against Chinese citizens masterminded by the United States and carried out by Canada as an accomplice.

Thanks to the unremitting efforts and resolute struggle of the Chinese government, the U.S. Department of Justice and Meng recently signed a stay of prosecution agreement, and the United States has withdrawn its extradition application to Canada.

On Sept 24, 2021 local time, Meng left Canada and returned to her homeland without pleading guilty or paying a fine.
