A Canadian court granted bail Tuesday to a top Chinese executive arrested at the United States' request in a case that has set off a diplomatic furor among the three countries and complicated high-stakes US-China trade talks.
Hours before the bail hearing in Vancouver, China detained a former Canadian diplomat in Beijing in apparent retaliation for the December 1 arrest of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei and daughter of the company's founder.
After three days of hearings, a British Columbia justice granted bail of 10 million Canadian dollars (US 7.5 million dollars) to Meng.
Bail conditions required her to wear an ankle bracelet, surrender her passports, stay in Vancouver and its suburbs and confine herself to one of her two Vancouver homes from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Meng left the courthouse late Tuesday surrounded by a security detail and was driven away in a black SUV without responding to questions from reporters.
