The Canadian Department of Justice gave approval on Friday for the British Columbia Supreme Court to carry out an extradition hearing for detained Huawei chief financial executive Meng Wanzhou.

The federal government had until midnight to make a call on moving ahead with the hearing, exactly three months since the embattled Meng was arrested, causing a drastic tensions between Canada and China that are prevalent still.

The United States wants Ottawa to send the 46-year-old CFO from Vancouver to New York to face charges against her related to conspiring to violate international sanctions against the Middle Eastern country of Iran.

Meng was detained on Dec. 1 during a stopover at Vancouver International Airport en route from Hong Kong to Mexico, but was released on a $10 million bail 12 days later. She has since been under surveillance living in a mansion she owns in the city.
