“I’ve no jurisdiction to make the order sought,” mentioned Mr Justice Fordham in his ruling delivered on Friday morning wherein he discovered that Ms Meng’s try to make use of the obscure Bankers Books Proof Act of 1879 to acquire the data was not attainable.
Ms Meng was ordered to pay £80,000 in complete prices to HSBC and its UK and US subsidiaries.
Ms Meng, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei and the corporate’s former head of finance, is on the centre of an extradition case in Canada that has created a rift between the nation and China.
US authorities have alleged Huawei tricked HSBC over relations between Huawei, the embattled Chinese language telecoms big, and one other agency, Skycom, that allowed it to promote telecoms equipment to Iran in violation of sanctions.
Huawei’s lawyer, James Lewis QC, advised the Excessive Courtroom that getting the HSBC paperwork was important for Ms Meng to have a “honest listening to” in Canada.
