  • The Chinese regime is furious

  • over the arrest of the Huawei CFO in Canada

  • If she's extradited to the US,

  • there could be trouble.

  • Meanwhile, China authorities have abducted Canadian citizens

  • as Trump prepares his next move in the US-China Trade War.

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I'm Chris Chappell.

  • The CFO of one of China's biggest telecom companies,

  • Huawei, has been released on bail.

  • Meng Wanzhou was arrested during

  • a plane transfer last week in Canada

  • and now faces extradition to the United States,

  • where, if convicted, she could face up to 30 years in jail.

  • The conditions of her release were steep.

  • The bail was set at 10 million Canadian dollars,

  • which is about 7 million US.

  • Plus, “Among conditions of her bail,

  • the 46-year-old executive must wear an ankle monitor

  • and stay at home from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.”

  • That means she's going to miss out on

  • the thrilling Canadian nightlife.

  • But don't worry,

  • Meng can still greet her friends and supporters at home.

  • Like these guys, who showed up with flowers at her mansion.

  • Which is exactly the same kind of treatment

  • Chinese dissidents get when they're under house arrest.

  • In addition to that,

  • Five friends pledged equity in their homes

  • and other money as a guarantee she will not flee.”

  • You know, sometimes it takes

  • getting arrested for violating sanctions on Iran

  • to find out who your real friends are.

  • I'm sure that if something like that ever happened to me,

  • Shelley would do the same.

  • Shelley?

  • Why aren't you saying anything?

  • Fine, I guess we aren't real friends.

  • Now China's Foreign Ministry has called the arrest a mistake.

  • We have already made our position clear

  • to the United States and Canada,

  • that they should immediately correct their mistake

  • and release Meng Wanzhou.”

  • He went on to say,

  • Any person, especially if it is a leader of the United States,

  • or a high-level figure,

  • who is willing to make positive efforts to push this situation

  • toward the correct direction,

  • then that, of course, deserves to be well received.”

  • I'm sorry,

  • Any person,

  • especially if it is a leader of the United States?”

  • I wonder who Lu Kang could be talking about.

  • Well, President Trump responded.

  • With a resounding, maybe.

  • In an exclusive interview with Reuters, Trump said,

  • If I think it's good for what will be certainly

  • the largest trade deal ever made

  • which is a very important thing

  • what's good for national security

  • I would certainly intervene if I thought it was necessary.”

  • Which I guess is Trump-speak for let's make a deal.

  • Trump has been promising a yuge increase in tariffs on Chinese goods,

  • unless China will come to an agreement he likes

  • within a 90-day window that's already ticking down.

  • Billions of dollars are on the line.

  • But Meng's arrest has made it more complicated.

  • Chinese state-run media had warned there would be

  • severe consequencesfor Meng's arrest.

  • It added yet another point of tension

  • between Washington and Beijing.”

  • And not just for Washington.

  • Also for Ottawa.

  • That's...the capital of Canada.

  • On Tuesday, Canada confirmed that one its citizens,

  • a former Canadian diplomat, was detained there.”

  • China has detained Canadian citizen Michael Kovrig.

  • He's a former diplomat, at one point serving as

  • the vice consul at Canada's embassy in Beijing.

  • He was working for the NGO International Crisis Group

  • and was abducted on Monday.

  • I mean, arrested.

  • Chinese authorities have publicly stated their arrest of Kovrig

  • totally has nothing to do with Meng Wanzhou.

  • He was arrested simply because his NGO

  • was violating Chinese law by not being registered in China.

  • Amnesty International says the Chinese government

  • has created new laws regulating NGOs specifically for this purpose.

  • The Chinese government recently enacted a law

  • governing the activities of foreign NGO

  • so they all have to be officially registered in China,

  • which is very difficult for many of them to do,

  • and therefore because it's so difficult,

  • a lot of times it's impossible to do work without,

  • in effect, breaking the law.”

  • That creates the situation, a lot of the time,

  • the Chinese government can ignore that,

  • but when they need to or when they want to,

  • they can always point to this so-called illegal activity

  • by foreign NGO workers and take actions if they want to.”

  • And as a former Canadian ambassador to China said,

  • In China there are no coincidences ...

  • If they want to send you a message they will send you a message.”

  • But China's fast and loose approach to the law

  • is actually part of the reason they won't understand

  • why this is a bad idea.

  • According to a former Canadian ambassador,

  • It won't work.

  • The Canadian court system

  • is not susceptible to pressure.

  • It is truly independent.”

  • Of course all of this should sound very familiar.

  • In 2014, Canada arrested a Chinese businessman

  • accused of stealing US military secrets.

  • And not long after,

  • Chinese authorities arrested a Canadian couple living in China.

  • In the end, the Chinese businessman

  • was still extradited to the US,

  • and the Canadian couple spent two years in prison

  • and house arrest before being deported.

  • Actually that spy case was pretty complicated and interesting,

  • so let me know in the comments if you'd like me to do

  • a China Uncensored episode about it.

  • Anyway, the point is,

  • if you mess with Chinese citizens for breaking your laws,

  • the Chinese Communist Party won't hesitate to

  • break China's laws to mess with your citizens.

  • In fact, in addition to Michael Kovrig,

  • Chinese authorities have also abducted, uh,

  • detained another Canadian citizen named Michael Spavor.

  • If you're a Canadian named Michael,

  • maybe now is a good time to leave China.

  • Spavor started a company in China that promotes

  • cultural exchanges with North Korea,

  • and he had helped arrange Dennis Rodman's first trip there.

  • Chinese authorities say that both Michaels are being investigated

  • foractivities that endangered China's national security.”

  • It's interesting to note that Chinese authorities

  • have only detained Canadians so far.

  • Maybe because they realize that taking Americans

  • would bring things to a whole new level.

  • Meanwhile, the US State Department is considering

  • issuing a travel warning to US citizens going to China.

  • Just to be safe.

  • So what do you think of the arrest of Meng Wanzhou

  • and the detention of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor?

  • Leave your comments below.

  • And now it's the time you've all been waiting for,

  • when I answer questions from a member of my 50-Cent Army,

  • fans who support China Uncensored

  • on the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Pekka Saari asks,

  • Winston from serpentza said in his last live stream

  • that you're political propaganda channel

  • paid by the Falun Gong,

  • are you going to respond?

  • Ah, the China Uncensored funding conspiracy theories.

  • I've heard a lot over the years,

  • usually that we're funded by the CIA,

  • or Falun Gong, or just vagueanti-China forces.”

  • Now typically I hear that from professional Chinese trolls,

  • so I was actually a bit surprised

  • to hear that coming from Winston.

  • I actually like a lot of his videos,

  • even though we don't always see eye to eye.

  • And I know he tries to be accurate with his information,

  • so I was surprised to hear he jumped on

  • that conspiracy theory bandwagon.

  • Anyway, he's wrong about this.

  • We've been very open about where

  • the funding for China Uncensored comes from.

  • About 20% is from YouTube ad revenue,

  • and the other 80% is from people like you:

  • Our roughly 2,000 supporters on Patreon.

  • Now that being said, I want to make something very clear

  • I am totally open to secret funding.

  • Especially from the CIA.

  • They have loads of money!

  • Then maybe our studio could look more like this.

  • Instead of this.

  • Anyway, I hope that answers your question, Pekka.

  • And if you'd like your question answered on the show,

  • join the China Uncensored 50-Cent Army on Patreon.

  • Remember, 80% of our revenue comes from you guys.

  • And as a way of saying thanks,

  • I'll give you some cool perks,

  • as well as answering your questions on the show.

  • Thanks for watching.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell.

  • See you next time.

The Chinese regime is furious
