Poland arrests Huawei employee on spying charges

A Chinese manager at tech giant Huawei was arrested in Poland and charged with espionage on behalf of China

A spokesperson for Orange Polska told Reuters, "On Tuesday members of the internal security agency in Poland conducted procedures inquiring into one of our workers".

Poland has arrested a sales director for Chinese telecoms giant Huawei over allegations of working with Beijing's intelligence services. In addition, TVP Info says, Internal Security Agency officers searched Huawei's headquarters in Poland, along with an Orange office where Piotr D. worked. Just $5 a month.

Australia and New Zealand have also enacted similar bans, leaving Canada the only country in the "Five Eyes" intelligence network not to take steps against the Chinese firm. No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the claims. United States officials are claiming Huawei is working with the Chinese government, allowing its equipment to be used by the government for spying on Western adversaries.

The European Commission will seek information from Poland after national authorities arrested this week a Chinese Huawei employee and a Polish national over espionage allegations. The Chinese ministry of foreign affairs said it was "greatly concerned" and that it expects Poland to "justly" manage the case.

"It's not the beginning of this case but it's also not the end", he said. Further details to the accusations are unfortunately not yet public.

Polish state television TVP reported that the men have proclaimed their innocence, but Zaryn said he could not confirm that. If they are found guilty, they face up to 10 years in prison.

Netflix Faces $25 Million Lawsuit Over ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’
Netflix , which has avoided using the phrase " choose your own adventure " in advertising, is yet to comment publicly on the case. The lawsuit claims that Netflix "deliberately exploited" the brand awareness of the book series in order to launch the show.

A person with knowledge of the case confirmed that a Huawei employee called Wang Weijing - also known as Stanislaw Wang - had been arrested but not charged.

Poland's internal affairs minister, Joachim Brudzinski, called for the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to work on a joint position over whether to exclude Huawei from their markets following the arrest of the Chinese employee and a former Polish security official on Friday.

A number of European governments and telecom companies have followed the USA in questioning whether using Huawei for vital mobile network infrastructure could open networks to spying by the Chinese government.

"In accordance with the terms and conditions of Huawei's labour contract, we have made this decision because the incident has brought Huawei into disrepute", it added. Orange Polska's spokesman Wojciech Jabczynski declined to comment on Huawei cooperation while confirming that the Warsaw-based company handed over an employee's belongings to the Polish authorities on Tuesday.

Another senior Huawei employee, Vice-President Meng Wanzhou, who is the daughter of the founder of the company, was also arrested in Canada last month.
