Huawei worker fired after spy­ing charges in Poland

The Sun News (Sunday) - - News -

Chi­nese tech gi­ant Huawei said Satur­day it has fired an em­ployee who was ar­rested in Poland on spy­ing charges.

The al­le­ga­tions against Wang Wei­jing “have no re­la­tion to the com­pany,” Huawei Tech­nolo­gies Ltd. said in a state­ment. It said Wang was fired be­cause the in­ci­dent “brought Huawei into dis­re­pute,” a vi­o­la­tion of his con­tract.

Pol­ish au­thor­i­ties an­nounced Fri­day that a Huawei di­rec­tor and a Pol­ish cy­ber­se­cu­rity ex- pert were ac­cused of car­ry­ing out “es­pi­onage against Poland.”

Huawei, the big­gest maker of tele­com net­work equip­ment, faces ac­cu­sa­tions by the United States and some other gov­ern­ments that it might be a se­cu­rity risk. Wash­ing­ton has im­posed curbs on use of Huawei tech­nol­ogy and is pres­sur­ing al­lies to avoid the com­pany.
