Poland charges Huawei manager and Pole with spying for China

Poland charges Huawei manager and Pole with spying for China

Poland's counterintelligence service confirmed on Friday that a Chinese citizen suspected of spying had been arrested.

They were detained by Poland's Internal Security Agency, TVP Info reported.

China's embassy has reached out to offer consular services to Wang, according to the South China Morning Post, which adds, "China's foreign ministry expressed grave concerns over the incident". Former 5G industry lobbyist and political candidate Scott Bradley would continue to assist the company as a consultant, Huawei Canada said.

Polish state TV reported both accused men had declared themselves innocent. The Eastern European country's officers have seized documents from both Huawei's and Orange's offices.

Chinese tech giant Huawei said Saturday it has fired an employee who was arrested in Poland on spying charges. The executive was identified as a graduate of one of China's top intelligence schools, WSJ noted.

Trump calls question on whether he ever worked for Russian Federation 'insulting'
Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson . Robert Mueller took over the investigation when he was appointed special counsel soon after Comey's firing.

If convicted, they could face up to 10 years in prison.

Huawei said that Bradley will now serve as a "special consultant" to the company and help them according to the company's requirements.

"Huawei is aware of the situation, and we are looking into it", a spokesman for the company told reporters. Also going by the Polish first name Stanislaw, the Chinese man had previously worked at the Chinese consulate.

The arrests are the latest embarrassment for the world's biggest telecoms equipment maker, following the detention in Canada last month of the firm's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou - accused by the United States of violating Iranian sanctions.

He is a graduate of the Beijing University of Foreign Studies.

And in December, Huawei's CFO was arrested by Canadian police, amid allegations she broke sanctions on selling equipment to Iran - something the firm again denied.

New Zealand's Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) blocked a proposal by Spark in November to use equipment from Huawei to build its 5G mobile network, which it hopes to have operational by July next year. Its parent company, France's Orange SA, will no longer work with the Chinese company in France, Chief Executive officer Stephane Richard said Tuesday.

Germany has said it's considering restricting Huawei's role in its future telecom infrastructure, while Czech President Milos Zeman said on Friday China is preparing an economically damaging reprisal against his country after the authorities issued warnings about Huawei and risks it poses to security.

The accusations add to Huawei's troubles of late as Western governments grow anxious that Huawei's systems could be used by Chinese intelligence.

Following her arrest two Canadians were detained in China on grounds of national security, in what has largely been seen as retaliation for the case.
