Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s CEO, returns to China after a deal with the US.

Following years of diplomatic tensions over her fate, a Chinese technology executive jailed in Canada on US fraud accusations has finally departed the country after reaching an agreement with prosecutors.

Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s top financial officer, was detained in December 2018 at the behest of the United States on fraud accusations.

Her extradition request was dismissed by the US Department of Justice on Friday.

China was enraged by the case, which damaged relations with the United States and Canada.

It also sparked rumors that China was holding Canadian people as retribution, which China rejected.

“My life has been turned completely inside out. For me, it was a tumultuous period “Ms Meng told reporters after being released from jail in Canada.

“Every cloud has a silver lining,” she added, “and I will never forget all the well wishes I received from individuals all over the world.”

According to the AFP news agency, she boarded an Air China flight heading for the Chinese city of Shenzhen shortly after.

Negotiations between US and Chinese diplomats have been strained over the details of a prospective arrangement for Ms Meng’s release.

Ms Meng is accused of deceiving HSBC about the true nature of Huawei’s business with Skycom, placing the bank in jeopardy of breaking US sanctions against Iran.

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) announced on Friday that a deferred prosecution agreement had been reached.

This means that the Department of Justice will not prosecute Ms Meng until December 2022. The case would finally be dismissed if she followed the court’s stipulations.

Meng Wanzhou: I’m Meng Wanzhou, and I’m I was imprisoned in a gilded cage.
