BEIJING — Accusations against China tech giant Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou have been “fabricated” and were aimed at suppressing the country’s high-tech industries, state media said on Saturday, citing foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.

After Meng was released and allowed to return to China from Canada following a US extradition case, Hua described Meng’s case as an “act of political persecution against Chinese citizens,” the Communist Party newspaper People’s Daily reported.
