The recent indictments of Chinese technology giant Huawei and the requested extradition of its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, have put discussions of U.S.-China relations at center stage. Huawei’s indictment in the Western District of Washington for alleged trade secret theft came on the heels of the Department of Justice’s November announcement of a China Initiative focused on Chinese economic espionage.

Grounded in part in the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations (ITSR), the 13-count EDNY indictment alleges bank fraud, wire fraud, a conspiracy to defraud the United States, and violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA).
