Barbara Linney Comments on Arrest of Huawei CFO in Fortune

"Hot Under the White Collar"



Barbara Linney commented on the arrest of Huawei's chief financial officer at a Vancouver airport. "When a senior executive from a global company is detained, that catches headlines," Linney said. "But there's been a steady stream of cases in which individuals have been charged." She also commented on the 2015 Yates memorandum on individual accountability, which publicized the Department of Justice's view that "individuals should not be immune from charges."
