Huawei fires sales manager who Poland charged with spying

Hmmm: Huawei exec arrested for espionage in Poland Poland arrests Huawei employee on allegations of spying
Kenny Thornton | 13 January, 2019, 12:43

The Huawei logo is displayed at a store in Beijing on December 6, 2018.

The Huawei employee is a Chinese national and the company's sales director for public-sector clients in Poland, while the former agent is a Pole who worked for Orange Polska, the local branch of a French telecom, Polish TV broadcaster Telewizja Polska (TVP) reported.

A Polish security services spokesman said earlier the allegations were related to individual actions, and were not linked directly to the Chinese company.

Huawei's relations with British authorities hit a low last month when a top official walked out of a meeting with the Chinese company over its perceived failure to fix security holes in its products, sources familiar with the talks told Reuters.

In addition to this, Huawei have come under fire from authorities in Norway, Germany, the United States, the UK, Australia and New Zealand, with several countries outright banning the use of their devices or equipment used in 5G mobile networks. They are well ahead of Sweden's Ericsson, Finland's Nokia and South Korea's Samsung, analysts say.

Concerns are rising over whether its technology, especially around the rollout of 5G or the fifth generation of cellular mobile communications, could be used by Beijing for espionage purposes. Weijing W.'s face has been blurred out of news reports in Poland and China, but the executive was pictured representing Huawei at a conference in 2017.

Huawei Technologies Co is under intense scrutiny in the West over its relationship with the Chinese government and US -led allegations that its equipment could be used by Beijing for spying.

Previous year the company also said it had signed memorandums of understanding for 5G equipment with 45 operators in Asia, Europe and North America.

Three New iPhones Reported For This Year
The WSJ report claims that for 2020 iPhone lineup, Apple is planning on entirely switching to OLED panels. Now as we enter 2019, prices for the iPhone are also going down in China.

Huawei has been scrutinized for security concerns over its involvement in the development of 5G infrastructures.

Under Chinese law, firms are compelled to "support, co-operate with and collaborate in national intelligence work".

Germany is under pressure from Washington to follow suit, news magazine Der Spiegel reported.

Huawei has rejected Western concerns, saying there was "no evidence" that it poses a threat to the national security of any country.

A senior Huawei Canada executive who served as the company's spokesperson in Canada has announced he will be leaving the Chinese company as tensions rise between Canada and China.

To add to the confusion, large operators could reject Huawei equipment in some of their markets, but not in others.

"Europe is facing a challenge when it comes to dealing with Huawei and it shows that the continent doesn't have the ability to be autonomous", said Solange Ghernaouti, head of the Swiss Cybersecurity Advisory and Research Group.
