Huawei could face U.S. indictment for trade theft

Huawei could face U.S. indictment for trade theft

The US government seems to be escalating these claims as it reportedly prepares to take the company to court over the alleged theft of trade secrets, however China believes it to be an intentional effort to stifle the country's technology companies.

This time, however, the US Department of Justice' investigation isn't focusing on some grand national security threat but on the Huawei's repeated theft of trade secrets from US companies.

Sen.r Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) to impose a ban on selling U.S. technology to Chinese companies in violation of sanctions laws and export control. In one of those cases, a Seattle jury ruled that Huawei misappropriated the robotic technology from T-Mobile's lab in Washington state. "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".

Styles' comments came shortly after he travelled with former premier Brad Wall to China, where they recognized a seven-year agreement signed between SaskTel and Huawei Canada to test next generation wireless broadband technology in rural Saskatchewan.

Huawei, the second-largest global smartphone maker and biggest producer of telecommunications equipment, has for years been under scrutiny in the United States over purported links to the Chinese government.

The Chinese company has already become a major part of the trade dispute between the USA and China. Both have also been accused of failing to respect USA sanctions on Iran.

Canadian authorities last month arrested Mr Ren's daughter, Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, on the request of the USA, which wants to extradite her to face charges that she violated U.S. sanctions against Iran.

Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, in a rare public appearance this week, said his company had never received a request from a government to transmit information in violation of any regulations.

The Handelsblatt daily reported earlier that the German government was actively considering stricter security requirements and other ways to exclude Huawei from the buildout of 5G mobile networks. They worry that, if Americans buy telecommunications equipment from either company, the gear could later be used as a way for the Chinese government to spy on Americans. The U.S.is seeking to extradite her to face charges she misled banks about the company's business dealings in Iran.

T-Mobile initially sued Huawei in 2014 for the actions of its employees and in May 2017 won US$4.8 million against the company, but this was only a fraction of what the mobile service provider sought.

At that time, Washington had announced an indictment against Chinese chipmaker Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co (晉華集成電路) for stealing trade secrets from US semiconductor company Micron Technology.
