Poland arrests two in Huawei spying row
WARSAW: Poland has arrested a Chinese employee of Huawei and a Polish national involved in cyber business on allegations of spying, Polish media reported yesterday, deepening the controversy over Western criticism of the Chinese telecoms equipment maker.
US intelligence agencies allege Huawei is linked to China’s government and that its equipment could contain “backdoors” for use by government spies.
No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the claims. But the criticism has led several Western countries and companies to look into whether they should allow Huawei’s equipment to be used in their telecoms networks.
“We are aware of the situation, and we are looking into it. We have no comment for the time being,” Huawei said in a statement. |
