U.S. government pursues criminal charges against Huawei

U.S. government pursues criminal charges against Huawei

"This is another prong in what is starting to feel like a full 360-degree assault on the business", said Isaac Stone Fish, a senior fellow at the Asia Society in NY. Another time, a Huawei employee, smuggled into the testing lab by two other men working for the company, snapped photographs of "Tappy". A source told the WSJ that the federal probe is still in an advanced stage, but it could lead to an indictment soon.

The legislation comes in response to the arrest of Huawei's CFO Meng Wanzhou, who was seized in December in Canada on charges of violating USA sanctions against Iran. "If Chinese telecom companies like Huawei violate our sanctions or export control laws, they should receive nothing less than the death penalty - which this denial order would provide".

The press release also said that the bill would direct the president "to impose the same strict penalties originally faced by ZTE on any Chinese telecommunications firm found to be in violation of US export control laws or sanctions".

Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comments at a regular news briefing in Beijing. "We hope the USA can create a fair competitive environment for Chinese enterprises operating in the U.S". Set a simple standard: "If a Chinese telecommunications company is found to have violated U.S. sanctions, it will be punished more severely than ZTE". "In the future, we must crack down on China's theft of advanced USA technology". "This is not what the No. 1 world power should do". "Notwithstanding the work of this committee in the USA, we also have a body of evidence in terms of the experience of other Canadian companies and 140-plus countries around the world where Huawei's involved". In 2012, congressional committees and other USA government entities criticized Huawei's "pattern of disregard for the intellectual property rights of other entities and companies in the U.S".

The company denies this. The U.S.is seeking to extradite her to face charges she misled banks about the company's business dealings in Iran.

Meng, the daughter of the company's founder, was arrested in Canada on December 1 and released on bail four weeks ago.

Huawei isn't the only target.

Chinese firms have always been accused of engaging in intellectual property theft-something the Justice Department said it was clamping down on last November by working alongside the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Three Taiwanese nationals were charged alongside the companies with conspiring to steal trade secrets. The criminal investigation now underway is, at least in part, related to the previous T-Mobile allegations, the sources said.

T-Mobile broke off its dealing with Huawei due to the incident, and the carrier wrote in its civil complaint that "Huawei has used the robot technology it misappropriated from T-Mobile to unjustly gain a commercial advantage worth hundreds of millions of dollars".
