While the US deferred prosecution against Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, they only did so in exchange for a four-page "statement of fact", which sounds pretty incriminating against Huawei as a company.
“In entering into the deferred prosecution agreement, Meng has taken responsibility for her principal role in perpetrating a scheme to defraud a global financial institution,” Nicole Boeckmann, the acting U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said Friday. “Her admissions in the statement of facts confirm that, while acting as the Chief Financial Officer for Huawei, Meng made multiple material misrepresentations to a senior executive of a financial institution regarding Huawei’s business operations in Iran in an effort to preserve Huawei’s banking relationship with the financial institution.”
Since the US is still prosecuting Huawei as a company on this matter, does this "statement of fact" from Meng, which is essentially a confession, improve the prosecution's case against the company?
The FBI at least seems to say that:
“Meng's admissions are evidence of a consistent pattern of deception to violate U.S. law,” said Assistant Director Alan E. Kohler Jr. of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. “The FBI will continue to aggressively investigate companies doing business in the United States when there are signs they behave with contempt for our laws.”
Can this statement of Meng be entered into evidence against Huawei?
(Although the full "statement of fact" has not yet been made public, at least according to the Guardian newspaper, the DOJ link above has a 12-paragarph summary of what Meng supposedly admitted to.)
