A jailed executive of Chinese telecom giant Huawei will need to wait at least one more day to find out whether she will be released on bail, after her hearing in a Canada court continued through Monday.

Meng Wanzhou, who is Huawei's chief financial officer and the daughter of founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested in Vancouver earlier this month at the request of US authorities as she was transiting from Hong Kong en route to Mexico.

Meng, 46, could face extradition to the US over allegations she was involved in violating sanctions on Iran, with each charge carrying a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.

Her bail hearing began in Vancouver on Friday, but as no decision was reached when it resumed Monday, the court was adjourned until the next day at 10 am (1800 GMT).

The prosecution said the US Justice Department has flagged her as a possible flight risk and asked the court to deny bail to Meng, citing the enormous financial resources at her disposal.

Meng’s lawyer has argued that given her high profile position in Huawei and in China, his client will never skip bail as doing so would be to "lose face."

He also argued that Meng, a former permanent resident of Canada, has strong connections to the country and will remain in Vancouver where she owns two multi-million-dollar houses along with her husband and her daughter, while her case proceeds.

The defence proposed putting Meng under round-the-clock electronic and physical surveillance to assuage fears that she might skip bail.

Scott Filer, chief executive of Lions Gate Risk Management Group, a private security firm, proposed "layering of technology combined with human element."

Filer told the court his company could provide electronic equipment, a dedicated driver and security team to make sure Meng abides by her bail conditions.

Meng’s husband, Liu Xiaozong, told the court he was ready to move to Canada and post a 15-million-Canadian-dollar (11.2-million-US-dollar) surety.

Meng’s arrest, which occurred on the same day that US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met after the G20 summit in Buenos Aires to discuss their trade war, has escalated tensions between Beijing and Washington.

Xi and Trump had previously agreed to a 90-day truce in their trade war that erupted in July.

On Monday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang slammed Ottawa's "inhumane treatment" of Meng in detention, saying she was needlessly handcuffed and shackled while in custody.

Court documents supplied by the defence show Meng suffers from hypertension and needs medical follow-up following recent thyroid surgery to remove a cancerous tumour.

China earlier summoned both the Canadian and US ambassadors in Beijing to discuss Meng's detention.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last week Canada is "a country of a rule of law" and there has been no political interference in Meng's case.
