The Chi­nese tech com­pany Huawei on Satur­day an­nounced it has fired a sales di­rec­tor who was ar­rested in Poland and charged with spy­ing for China, say­ing he has brought the firm’s rep­u­ta­tion “into dis­re­pute.”

The com­pany said it has “de­cided to ter­mi­nate the em­ploy­ment of Mr Wang Wei­jing, who was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of break­ing Pol­ish law.”

Pol­ish au­thor­i­ties said Fri­day they have ar­rested Wang, a Chi­nese cit­i­zen and for­mer diplo­mat, along with a Pol­ish cy­ber-se­cu­rity ex­pert who had held sev­eral top government cy­ber­se­cu­rity jobs and also worked at the tele­com com­pany Orange.

Huawei said Wang’s ac­tions “have no re­la­tion to the com­pany” and that he was fired be­cause “the in­ci­dent in ques­tion has brought Huawei into dis­re­pute.” (AP)
