Huawei sacks employee arrested for allegedly spying for China in Poland

Huawei sacks employee arrested for allegedly spying for China in Poland

In a coordinated arrest, police also detained a Polish citizen named Piotr D. - a former Internal Security Agency official who now works for the telecom Orange Polska, according to Poland's TVP Info, which first reported the story.

In a separate memo Friday to Huawei Canada, Mr. Bradley himself said his departure was "not a sudden decision but rather an understanding over the past year-and-a-half that at some point, I would be moving on from a formal role with the company".

New Zealand, Australia and the United States have all barred the company from involvement in their national 5G networks.

Last Tuesday (8 January), ABW counterintelligence officers entered the homes of both suspects and secured documents and electronic data at the premises of Huawei Poland, the Office of Electronic Communications and Orange Poland.

An official says Poland's Internal Security Agency has arrested a Chinese businessman and a Pole on suspicion of espionage.

Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou (孟晚舟) was last month arrested in Canada on request from the USA, which suspects her of breaching Iranian sanctions.

"This specific investigation concerns two people".

Nevertheless, tensions have recently increased between Canada and China over the arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver and the detention of two Canadians in China, which some speculate was done in response to Meng's arrest.

Huawei has come under global scrutiny lately.

He said "both carried out espionage activities against Poland".

Rumor: Nokia 6.2 with a punch-hole display & Snapdragon 632 coming soon
The phone will launch in China first just like its predecessors and is expected to arrive by the end of January or early February. The display will measure 6.22-inch in size, similar to the upcoming Motorola P40 that will also have the punch-hole display.


It added: "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 agency did not immediately respond to Reuters' requests for a response to the reports. Instead, many analysts in China have painted the attacks on Huawei as an attempt to thwart the rise of a Chinese technological giant, and insulate Western firms from competition.

Spark spokesman Andrew Pirie has previously confirmed its proposal would have seen Huawei staff install as well as supply 5G access equipment on its cellphone towers.

Malta, on the other hand, has embraced Huawei with open arms, announcing in October that facial recognition technology was set to be introduced to the country using technology provided by the firm.

But in Europe, Portugal's main operator MEO signed a deal with Huawei in December during a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, praising the Chinese company's "know how, competence, talent and capacity to develop technology and invest in our country".
