Meng Wanzhou, a top executive of Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., has had a brush with potentially violating U.S. sanctions before — one of the speculated reasons for her arrest Saturday in Canada.

Although it remains unclear whether Meng’s arrest, done at the request of the U.S., is connected with her position as Huawei’s chief financial officer, it bodes poorly for the company as the U.S. has come down hard in the past on Chinese firms that violate its sanctions, particularly against Iran.
