HUAWEI'S CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER and Fallon Carrington-Colby of the Chinese Dynasty, Meng Wanzhou, has begun legal proceedings against Canada for her arrest on fraud charges.
The daughter of Huawei Founder Ren Wanzhou (yes, we can hear you, Ren Fandango) is undergoing extradition to the US to face charges of breaching sanctions against Iran in order to strike a trade deal.
At the same time, Ms Meng launched a civil suit against their friends in the North, for breach of her civil rights.
Ms Meng will appear in court on Wednesday when it's expected that the extradition will begin in earnest, a move which she describes as a "political incident".
The suit seeks damages from the Canadian Border Services Agency, the federal government, and bizarrely, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Yes, Ms Meng is suing the Mounties.
At a corporate level, reports are beginning to circulate suggesting that Huawei is about to sue the US government for issuing a "bill of attainder" - in other words, that the ban on Federal staff using Huawei products has been done to target them, without trial. Huawei is yet to confirm this.
Ms Meng has claimed that she was held at the border under false pretences in order to give the feds time to raid her home - a breach of Canadian law.
The writ also adds that those detaining her failed to read her any rights including the right to an attorney or a right to silence.
Of course, this is just the latest salvo in a hot war of legal he said-she said.
Last week, the US filed 23 charges against Huawei, in addition to those against Ms Meng herself, which the company has called "abuse of the bilateral extradition treaty".
Meanwhile, behind the Great Firewall, it's thought that Huawei has detained two Canadian nationals in retaliation.
At MWC last week, the company took to the stage to once again deny all the accusations made against it, stating that they have never and will never install back doors in their products because that would be against the law.
