Leo Adler was interviewed by the Washington Post to comment on the ongoing extradition process of Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou.
Worldwide, crime crosses borders, and it is a problem that requires multinational solutions. Sometimes, alleged participants in criminal activities end up across borders from the country where the incidents took place. This complicates investigations, and it led to the development of extradition agreements, which are tools to bring about international cooperation. Canada has treaties with countries like the United States when it comes to investigations and prosecutions to contain cross-border crime.
