Bryce McRae, an officer with the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA), testified at the Supreme Court of British Columbia on October 30.

McRae said the call from the female FBI agent lasted about `a minute or two` and was `unusual.`

According to McRae, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in fact did not call agents at Vancouver International Airport the day after December 1, 2018, when Manh Van Chu was arrested while transiting at Vancouver airport.

Meng Wanzhou left her home to attend a hearing in British Columbia court on October 27.

Meng’s legal team argued that the FBI conspired with the CBSA, Canadian federal police and other agencies to conduct `a secret criminal investigation` at the time of her arrest.

Manh Van Chu, 48 years old, was arrested at the request of the US while transiting at Vancouver airport on the way to Mexico.

Meng Wanzhou claims her innocence and is appealing from Vancouver, where the Huawei chief financial officer is under house arrest and monitored by a private security unit at her home in the Shaughnessy neighborhood.

This week’s cross-examination of witnesses is part of Meng’s extradition hearing to the US.

Canadian government prosecutors are trying to prove that Ms. Manh was arrested according to the correct procedure and that any mistakes during the arrest process will not affect the validity of her extradition.

Previously, Scott Kirkland, another border guard officer who interrogated Manh Van Chu before police arrested her, said he `blushed` when he realized he had made a mistake, handing over her phone password.

`I was very embarrassed when I realized I made that mistake,` Kirkland said when asked by lawyer Mona Duckett why the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) had codes and methods to identify electronic devices.

The time the witness gave his testimony took place slower than expected.

Hearings in Meng Wanzhou’s extradition case are expected to end in April next year, although appeals could drag on the case for years.

Meng Wanzhou’s arrest pushed diplomatic relations between the two countries into tension, when Beijing accused Ottawa of `complicity` with Washington in its effort to bring down Huawei and immediately arrested two Canadian citizens on charges of espionage.
