By Isabella Cheng, Published Mar 16, 2022, 09:45am EDT (Info+)

Aventura alleges that the US government is "misrepresenting" its relationship with suppliers, including Hikvision, and customers, including the Air Force, Army, and Navy, in its defense against criminal fraud charges.

The subpoenaed documents are necessary to prepare a "proper defense" for Aventura, the accused company's counsel says.

In this report, IPVM examines Aventura's requests for the various subpoenas as well as the rule of law surrounding how subpoenas are issued in criminal cases.
