Meng's lawyers will seek to convince Holmes that Canadian federal police and border agents violated her rights in questioning her and searching her devices in the three hours after she disembarked from the Hong Kong flight but before her arrest.

While Huawei has its own app store (which I'll come to later) it's nowhere close to rivalling Google's and it makes this phone difficult to recommend over any of its rivals.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Canada Border Services Agency witnesses are also expected to testify on her behalf.

Arguments of "unlawful detention, search and interrogation" have been raised before as part of a failed bid by the defense to access classified documents and emails between officials.

The defense had hoped to find proof in them of an alleged conspiracy to interrogate Meng and collect evidence to use at her US trial, in violation of her rights.

If proven, the allegations could result in a stay of the extradition proceedings.

Earlier this month, Holmes rejected a defense bid for access to all but one of hundreds of government documents, citing legal privilege.

In August, a separate federal court also refused Meng's request to access intelligence documents, citing national security and saying they do not bolster her challenge to how her arrest was carried out.

That batch of documents included Canadian Security Intelligence Service situational reports about Meng's arrest, emails and an agent's handwritten notes taken in the days following her arrest.

The Canadian government's senior lawyer, Robert Frater, has denied the claim Meng's rights were abused.

"The attorney general of Canada doesn't accept there was any conspiracy to deprive Ms. Meng of her rights," Frater said in July. "We do not accept there was any violation of Ms. Meng's rights."

After this round, another set of hearings is scheduled early next year when the defense is expected to argue that US President Donald Trump "poisoned" her chance at a fair hearing when he said he might exchange Meng for trade concessions from China shortly after her arrest.

The case is scheduled to wrap up in April 2021.
