In the court ruling, Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes accepted the Huawei executive's application as there is an "air of reality" to her claim that there may have been an abuse of process during her arrest at the Vancouver International Airport.
Meng, the daughter of the founder of Huawei, is now on bail, where he must remain locked in one of his two houses in Vancouver between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.
She said the two men "are in sound condition", but demurred on questions about their access to lawyers.
Meng claims she needs the documents to show there was an abuse of process in her fight against the extradition.
Such a stay is only granted "in the rarest of cases", she said. While the issue of her extradition to the U.S.to face those charges remains under discussion, Ms. Meng has spent the past year under house arrest at a luxurious West Coast mansion, where she reportedly spends her days reading novels, receiving visitors, brushing up on oil-painting skills and essentially roaming the city at will until her nightly curfew. "However, I can not rule out the possibility that it would".
"I view the evidence tendered by the Attorney General to address those gaps as strategic in its character yet impoverished in its substance", the judge said, noting that Canada has left "largely unexplained" why border officials turned over Meng's passwords to the police, contrary to law, and when and how the mistake came to light.
The order will require Canadian authorities to provide documents such as meetings or phone calls about Meng's arrest plan, all updates to members of the United States Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the day of his arrest, any information about Meng's detention or arrest created or held by the RCMP, among other documents, to Meng's legal team.
