The information comes from Doug Maynard, chief operating officer of Lions Gate Risk Management, which provides security for Meng Wanzhou, who testified in court.

Maynard testified that Meng Wanzhou received “five or six” threatening letters at her home between June and July 2020. The Vancouver Police Department participated in the examination of relevant evidence. The letters “were sent in the mail and were easily identifiable by the markings on the envelopes,” Maynard said.

possible reason

Maynard did not reveal the sender’s identity or possible motive. But some previous public opinion details provided some possible clues.

After Meng Wanzhou was arrested, two Canadians, Michael Korvig and Michael Spavor, were successively arrested in China. Some foreign media said that behind the arrest of these two Canadians, China hopes Pressuring Canada to release Meng Wanzhou by taking “hostages”. They also said that on June 24, 2020, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian linked the two incidents, suggesting that if the Canadian government releases Meng Wanzhou to return to China, it will change the two Canadians indicted by China for “espionage” man’s fate.

During the multiple trials of Meng Wanzhou’s case, local people protested with photos of two Canadians. They claimed that Meng Wanzhou could be released on bail and lived comfortably in their villa, but the two Canadians did not receive such treatment. It may be the outrage that arises from this contrast that elicits the aforementioned threats.

However, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the two cases involving Canadian citizens were suspected of endangering China’s national security, and the competent Chinese authorities arrested, prosecuted and tried them.

Meng Wanzhou’s request to relax bail conditions, the Canadian government said there is no reason to change

At the bail hearing, Meng Wanzhou’s lawyers asked her to be allowed to go out without the surveillance of security guards, and requested to relax her bail conditions. According to the terms of Meng Wanzhou’s bail after her arrest in December 2018, the escort of security personnel to leave the residence was one of the requirements. In support of relaxing bail conditions, Meng Wanzhou’s husband Liu Xiaozong said her bail conditions had a negative impact on her and her family.

Liu Xiaozong also said that the follow-up of Lionsgate personnel also affected the implementation of epidemic prevention measures, which would bring risks to Meng Wanzhou’s health. Liu Xiaozong believes that his wife is more susceptible to the virus due to various surgeries in the past.

In this regard, the Canadian government prosecutors also cross-examined Liu Xiaozong that day. The Canadian government said in a statement on the 11th that there is currently no reason to change the conditions.
