U.S. brings new charges against Huawei

Antelope Valley Press - - BUSINESS -

WASH­ING­TON — The Jus­tice De­part­ment has added new crim­i­nal charges against Chi­nese tech gi­ant Huawei and two of its U.S. sub­sidiaries. The U.S. is ac­cus­ing the com­pany in a plot to steal trade se­crets. The com­pany is also ac­cused of in­stalling sur­veil­lance equip­ment that en­abled Iran to spy on pro­test­ers dur­ing 2009 anti-gov­ern­ment demon­stra­tions in Iran, and of do­ing business in North Korea de­spite U.S. sanc­tions there. The case comes as the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion is rais­ing na­tional se­cu­rity con­cerns about Huawei, the world’s largest telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions equip­ment man­u­fac­turer, and is lob­by­ing Western al­lies against in­clud­ing the com­pany in wire­less, high­speed net­works.
