“Every time a court hearing has finished, I have seen Huawei employees staying up all night just to follow my case in distant time zones,” Meng wrote in a letter that was published Monday on the company’s internal online forum. “This has brought me to tears.”
A translated version of the letter was provided to CNN Business by the company.
The case against Meng was filed amid a broader campaign against the Chinese tech company by the US government, which claims Huawei’s networking equipment poses a national security threat.
Meng said in her letter that she had been encouraged by messages of support posted in the Huawei forum, and the sight of former employees lining up outside the court in Vancouver.
“Despite being physically restricted to a very limited space during my time in Vancouver, my inner self has never felt so colorful and vast,” Meng said in the letter Monday.
Meng’s high-profile detention has led to a diplomatic standoff between Canada, China and the United States, and complicated trade talks between Washington and Beijing, which has called for her release.
Huawei, which is world’s biggest maker of telecommunications equipment, has shown a growing willingness to go on the offensive.
She’s expected to appear in Canadian court again in September.
