How crazy that the world markets are on edge due to the arrest of a single person.
One person. An Asian female. I think about all the Asian females that have been thrown away like a piece of trash there, but not
this one. What a weird juxtaposition, to think of this lady and a normal Chinese woman.

The detention of Meng Wanzhou, 46, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's chief financial officer, threatens to drive a wedge between the United States and China just days after they agreed on a 90-day trade-war truce in Argentina on Saturday - the day she was detained.

This runs a little deeper than her arrest. It involves HSBC which paid $1.92 billion in 2012 after entering a deferred prosecution agreement.. It looks like they are caught once again in this mess by money laundering.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chinese telecoms giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's chief financial officer was arrested as part of a U.S. investigation into an alleged scheme to use the global banking system to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran, according to people familiar with the probe.

The United States has been looking since at least 2016 into whether Huawei shipped U.S.-origin products to Iran and other countries in violation of U.S. export and sanctions laws, Reuters reported in April.

More recently, the probe has included whether the company used HSBC Holdings Plc to conduct illegal transactions involving Iran, the people said.

Companies are barred from using the U.S. financial system to funnel goods and services to sanctioned entities. If the mobile phone and telecoms equipment maker conducted such transactions and then misled HSBC about their true nature, it could be guilty of bank fraud, experts say.

I am American and sorry, arresting people in other countries by decree, the ability to limit someones freedom, even if not in your own nation..

You deserve all the Karma you get, and I will not bat a tear drop.
