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, and is lobbying Western allies against including the company in wireless, high-speed networks. Tesla discloses SEC subpoena Tesla received a subpoena in December from the Securities and Exchange Commission asking the electric-car maker to turn over informatio­n about its financial data and contracts, the company said in a filing with the agency Thursday. In the filing, Tesla also said that the SEC had closed a separate investigat­ion into projection­s and statements the company made in 2017 about production rates of its Model 3 sedan. The SEC had previously investigat­ed statements from Elon Musk, Tesla’s chief executive, about plans to take the company private. That investigat­ion ended in 2018. Tesla also announced Thursday that it planned to issue about $2 billion in new common stock.
