Meng – Huawei’s chief financial officer and daughter of the giant corporation’s founder - was granted release in a Vancouver court hearing, hours after US prosecutors announced an agreement in New York. She then quickly boarded a flight to the city of Shenzhen, returning to China for the first time since her arrest in Vancouver’s international airport at the behest of US authorities in 2018, Agence France-Presse reported.
She had been under house arrest since, monitored by a private security company she pays for as part of her bail agreement. “Over the past three years, my life has been turned upside down. It was a disruptive time for me as a mother, wife and a company executive,” she told reporters outside the court. “But I believe every cloud has a silver lining. It really was an invaluable experience in my life. The saying goes, the greater the difficulty, the greater the growth.”
