Abstract: This article’s ultimate purposes are to answer the heated-discussed questions
in the Meng Wanzhou case and provide a brief introduction to extradition, especially
essential sections such as double criminality. The article focuses mainly on the facts
of the Meng Wanzhou case and the necessary procedures concerned. First, the
investigation abstracted from the Extradition Act of Canada, applying principles and
theories in the extradition practice to fully explain the case in detail. Then, the study
explored two critical terms: extraditable offenses, double criminality, and their primary
coverages. Next, the research provided two main arguments: the abuse of procedure
and the acknowledgment of double criminality. Finally, the analysis added another
extradition case to compare the Meng Wanzhou case. Overall, the study analyzed the
procedural law and law ideologies in the case. The consideration of national values is
the cornerstone of the case.

Keywords: Double Criminality, Extradition Practice, Procedural Law, Law Ideologies,
