据多家美国媒体报道,在美国检方提出请求后,美国法院当地时间12月2日正式撤销了对中国华为公司首席财务官孟晚舟的所谓“银行欺诈”等罪名的指控,且检方不能就此再重新提起诉讼。美国司法部2日也表示,孟晚舟在期限内没有违反暂缓起诉协议,因此指控被完全撤销。

The US Justice Department has dropped all charges against Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, who was held by Canada on a US warrant for Iran sanctions-related charges for nearly three years, which strained relations not only between the US and China, but also Canada and China.

当地时间12月1日,纽约布鲁克林地区联邦检察官卡洛琳·波科尔尼致信美国地区法官安·唐纳利,称由于没有孟晚舟违反“暂缓起诉协议”(DPA)的信息,“谨提请(法院)撤销本案中对被告孟晚舟的第三次替代起诉”。

With no information Meng violated the deal, "the government respectfully moves to dismiss the third superseding indictment in this case as to defendant Wanzhou Meng," Brooklyn US Attorney Carolyn Pokorny wrote in a Dec 1 letter to US District Judge Ann Donnelly.

美国地区法官安·唐纳利于当地时间12月2日撤销了对孟晚舟的“银行欺诈”等罪名的指控。另据加拿大通讯社报道,安·唐纳利在一份书面裁决中表示:“兹命令撤销上述对被告孟晚舟提出的第三次替代起诉,且不能重新提起诉讼。”

US District Judge Ann Donnelly on Friday dismissed Meng's indictment with prejudice, which means it cannot be brought again in court.

另据法新社报道,美国司法部12月2日也表示,孟晚舟已完成“暂缓起诉协议”(DPA)且在协议期限内未有违反行为,因此指控已完全撤销,且不能重新提起诉讼。

2021年9月,华为首席财务官孟晚舟与美国司法部达成“暂缓起诉协议”。根据该协议,美方同意在2022年12月1日,也就是孟晚舟因为美国的逮捕令而在加拿大被捕之日的4年后,撤销对她的指控。

The US formally asked Canada to extradite Meng in 2019, but she remained there under house arrest until Donnelly approved her deferred prosecution agreement with the US.

The Justice Department said Friday that Meng had completed the period of the agreement without violating it and so the charges were fully dropped.

Meng was freed in 2021 after reaching the agreement for charges against her to be dismissed on December 1, 2022, four years from the date of her arrest in British Columbia on a US warrant.

据此前报道,2018年12月1日,孟晚舟途经加拿大温哥华机场转机时,被加拿大政府以“应美方要求”为由无端拘押,美国指控她在华为的伊朗业务问题上误导汇丰银行,由此开启了中国与美加两国漫长的司法与外交博弈,孟晚舟也被加拿大非法拘押长达1028天。

Meng, the daughter of Ren Zhengfei, founder of the Chinese telecoms giant, was Huawei's CFO when she was arrested in Vancouver in December 2018. She had been accused of bank fraud and other crimes for misleading global bank HSBC Holdings Plc about the company's business in Iran to obtain banking services in violation of US sanctions.

经各方不懈努力,2021年9月25日,孟晚舟乘坐包机离开加拿大,顺利回到祖国。



中国外交部发言人华春莹2021年9月曾强调:中方在孟晚舟事件上立场是一贯的、明确的。事实早已充分证明,这是一起针对中国公民的政治迫害事件,目的是打压中国的高技术企业。对孟晚舟女士所谓“欺诈”的指控纯属捏造。美国、加拿大所作所为是典型的任意拘押。
