Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou has filed a civil lawsuit against the Canadian government, accusing it of wrongful imprisonment while insisting upon her “innocence of any wrongdoing.”

Meng filed the suit against the government and two of its agencies—the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canada Border Services Agency—in the British Columbia Supreme Court on March 1, the same day Canada allowed the US’s extradition process against her to proceed.

Huawei declined to comment when contacted by TechNode.
