The Power of the U.S. Department of justice,

Could learn China, something of Switzerland, when it comes to the determination of the United States, your laws in the world to enforce? The just at the behest of the U.S. Department of justice in Canada set Huawei-Manager Meng Wanzhou is not the first example of public managers of global companies that come to the attention of the United States. Switzerland thus has experience.

About UBS Manager Raoul Weil. He was arrested in October 2013, in Bologna, and extradited to the United States – he had married from Switzerland, where he was before extradition to Italy. It was a principle party to the dispute; the U.S. tax law on the one hand, and the Swiss Bank secret on the other side.

the case of Huawei experts in the USA call a "law enforcement with a foreign policy Dimension". The American sanctions against Iran, against Meng and her group until about 2014 failed to have, are not actually binding upon the whole world. But the United States uses its global Power, the weight of the dollar and the intertwining of their economies with virtually every major company in the world to their will far beyond the own territory to enforce.

Decisive one between the landing of Meng in Vancouver on the way to Mexico. was

the starting point of such methods is not an indictment in the United States. For Meng are the responsibility of the public Prosecutor's office for the Eastern District of New York, which is silent to do this, but so far is good. As soon as the extradition of the accused is necessary, it must be on the Department of justice in Washington. It is also a strategically important case, also informed the White house.

How strong the policy is interfering, then, is from case to case, a diplomatic balancing act – and under a government Trump is even less predictable. Although the capture of Meng has not directly to do with the trade dispute between the United States and China. Also, the interaction of arrest with a G meet 20-talks between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping was a coincidence. Crucial a stopover of Meng in Vancouver on the way to Mexico. But it is to be expected that Trump will use the charges against Huawei as a means of pressure.

So it was in the case of Raoul Weil. The UBS man was speaking the end of 2014, after a short procedure. But for the Swiss Federal Council and the banks, it was clear that businesses in the United States were associated with enormous risks. The banks paid hundreds of millions in order to avoid further charges. And, the Federal Council gave the Bank a secret. Today, Switzerland is involved in a comprehensive exchange of Bank client data.

The "black-and-money-strategy" had cost the Switzerland everywhere sympathies.

Too powerful the US is, too important for the US business. Allies had the Switzerland: The "black-and-money-strategy" had a cost of anywhere sympathies. Switzerland was forced to cave in. She is also a small Alpine Republic in the heart of Europe (and not a member of the significantly more powerful EU).

the middle Kingdom is, however, a heavy weight that wants to be on any territory of the United States wish to regulate. The Causa Huawei will strain relations between Washington and Beijing for months. The easiest way would be, if Meng Wanzhou, as Raoul would Because, acquitted. But after that it looks at the moment.
