A Podcast Called INTREPID

Discussing and debating Canadian national security law and politics

Ep 66 Jingle all the Huawei

First, let’s make clear, Stephanie is responsible for the title of today’s episode. But yes, it’s the Huawei special. We do a deep dive into the extradition proceedings at play now in Vancouver, brought against the CFO of Huawei for some sort of alleged US sanctions busting. We bring in the big guns: Alan Kashdan, an export controls, trade and sanctions law expert from Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP in Washington DC, walks through what might be at issue with the US criminal investigation sparking the extradition process. And then Rob Currie from Dalhousie’s Schulich School of Law guides us through the, yes, very political extradition process. (Extradition is the most political legal process we’re likely to ever talk about on this show). Thanks to both Alan and Rob on becoming INTREPID alums.
