She now faces extradition to the United States, the Globe and Mail newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Meng, who is one of the vice chairs on the Chinese technology company’s board and the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested on Dec. 1.

A court hearing has been set for Friday, a Canadian Justice Department spokesman said, according to the Globe and Mail.
