Huawei worker fired af­ter spy charge in Poland

The Tribune (SLO) (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, say­ing Wang was fired be­cause the in­ci­dent “brought Huawei into dis­re­pute.”

Pol­ish au­thor­i­ties said Fri­day that a Huawei direc­tor and a Pol­ish cy­ber­se­cu­rity ex­pert were ac­cused of car­ry­ing out “es­pi­onage against Poland.” Huawei, the big­gest maker of tele­com net­work equip­ment, faces ac­cu­sa­tions by the U.S. and other na­tions that it might be a se­cu­rity risk.
