US prosecutors have charged Huawei's chief financial officer with fraud, saying she had used at least seven passports in 11 years.
...she was charged with conspiracy to defraud multiple financial institutions between 2009 and 2014.
It is alleged she used Hong Kong company Skycom to access the Iranian market in deals that violated US sanctions.
She allegedly assured US banks that Huawei and Skycom were different companies but prosecutors say they were one and the same.
Mr Gibb-Carsley said she had been aware of the US investigation and had avoided entering the country since March 2017, despite the fact that her son attends school in Boston.
The US said she had at least seven passports from China and Hong Kong in the last 11 years and that Huawei had tried to move Chinese nationals out of the US if they could be potential witnesses to its Iran operations.

Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2, Obama would never ever be this bold and clear vs the Chinese Communists in standing up to their asymmetrical warfare.
Human Rights and Free Trade ,LOL
Good for Trump to play hardball.
Remember when Democrat Vice President Al Gore was caught with those suitcases full of bribe money from Chinese Agents?
Remember how they hanged him for espionage?
The Democrats dont mind selling your children into slavery and slaughter if they can make a few bucks on it.
Compare this to China rounding up our assets a few years ago, this was softball.
The ChiCom’s are scared $hitless of what DJT’s next move will be.
On one of her passports she gave the name of Yu Dum Dum.
7 passports? I didn’t know there was a limit and that headline is misleading when the real reason is partly due to the passports..
I know a few who have Canadian, US and EU. I know another guy who has 4 with an Asian country I wont say..
Another passport had the name Me Bim Bo.
Yes. The major crime is not the seven passports but using fraud to aid Iran.
Here’s an article about the passports.
Sum ting wong.
If her passports were under her legal name, what is the problem? Many travelers have more than one as certain countries deny entry if a passport is stamped from a Country they deem “their enemy”.
Don’t spies have seven passports?
Sheesh, I only have one.
How are your friends doing this?
” People I know who became US citizens had to turn over their other passports.”
You mean a US citizen who is also a dual citizen of Canada is supposed to turn over the Canadian passport? Really...(eyes looking up)
Did you really just say that?? LOL
Other passports are not to be used when you become a US citizen.
It looks like use of other countries passports come down to whether those countries allow dual citizenship.
Interesting. I will ask them about this.
When you become naturalized, you must take an oath that you swear off allegiance to any other state/sovereign, but this is a manner of personal morals. It is quite legal and acceptable to maintain other citizenships for convenience.
Another case is that of people who are born holding two citizenships, who can use both passports throughout their lives.
I am certain about these rules. My wife and three children hold both United States and Russian Federation passports. My youngest (twins) obtained their US passports at the US embassy in Moscow, after the presentation of proof that they were born US citizens (my wife and my US passports).
If you know people who had to surrender their other passports upon naturalization as a USC, this was because their original country of original citizenship does not permit dual citizenship. Germany and India are two examples that immediately come to mind, as I know people from each of these countries who had to deal with this situation.
