      It's possibly largest bail payment ever demanded by a court in British Columbia.

      Today, Huawei Technologies Co. chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was ordered freed from custody upon posting $10 million.

      Of that, $7 million must come in the form of cash.

      As part of her conditions, she's forbidden from stepping foot into Vancouver International Airport.

      She also has to surrender her passports, live in one of her Vancouver homes, stay in the house from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., and restrict her travel to Vancouver, Richmond, and parts of the North Shore.

      Meng is also required to wear an electronic-monitoring device.

      She faces charges in the United States in connection with misleading financial institutions with regard to Skycorp., which the U.S. government claims was a Huawei subsidiary when it violated U.S. sanctions on Iran.

      Meng has denied any wrongdoing and none of the charges have been proven in court.

      Meanwhile, U.S. president Donald Trump has told the Reuters news agency that he would intervene in the Justice Department's case against Meng if it served national-security interests or helped close a trade deal.

      “Whatever’s good for this country, I would do,” Trump said.
