Ottawa/ Canadian-Media: Detained Huawei telecom executive Meng Wanzhou's husband Liu Xiaozong, and her two children were granted permission to come to Canada by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) officials, media reports said.

Liu came to Canada in October and was followed by the couple's children in December.
Meng, chief financial officer for Huawei Technologies Co., was detained in December 2018 while she was changing planes in Vancouver.
This was followed by her arrest on a U.S. extradition request over allegations of lying to a Hong Kong banker in August 2013 about Huawei's control of a subsidiary accused of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran.
She has been released on bail but has consistently denied the charges against her.
Meng is required to wear a GPS ankle monitoring bracelet, subject to the bail conditions, and is confined to her home from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day and is allowed to travel around the Lower Mainland with security guards paid by her during the day.
The extradition proceeding is expected to begin at the beginning of March, and would continue until the end of April.
