Huawei sales director arrested in Poland over spying allegations

Open this

No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the claims.

Federal Bureau of Investigation director Chris Wray said in February that they were concerned about allowing a company "that is beholden to foreign governments that don't share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks".

Poland's state security agency arrested a Chinese businessman and a Polish national on Friday over allegations of spying, Poland's state news agency PAP reported.

Huawei told the BBC it had no immediate comment.

"We are aware of the situation, and we are looking into it. Huawei complies with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries where it operates, and we require every employee to abide by the laws and regulations in the countries where they are based".

The two men were arrested on Tuesday.

Geopolitical tensions over Huawei intensified after its chief financial officer, who is the daughter of founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested December 1 in Canada in connection with US accusations that the company violated restrictions on sales of American technology to Iran. Approved in 2017, the law states that Chinese "organisations and citizens shall, in accordance with the law, support, cooperate with, and collaborate in national intelligence work".

What Powell is saying
Stocks turned negative after the comments, with the Dow recently down about 35 points. Reports like retail sales and GDP could be sidelined.

A Chinese Huawei "director" and a Polish cyber business specialist have been arrested in Poland on suspicion of spying for China, it has emerged.

The arrested pair will be held for three months, PAP reported, citing the spokesperson for Poland's head of special services.

While the MateBook 13 was certainly Huawei's biggest focus at CES 2019, it wasn't the only announcement from the company.

Maciej Wasik, deputy head of Poland's special service, said that the operation that resulted in the arrest of the two suspects had been underway for a long time and was planned with care.

The other detained person is a former high-ranking official at Poland's internal security agency who worked at mobile phone operator Orange Polska SA, the broadcaster said.

The agency did not immediately respond to Reuters' requests for a response to the reports.
