Spy suspicion: Huawei employee arrested in Poland

Western intelligence has been accusing the Chinese network supplier Huawei of espionage for a long time. Now an employee of the group has been set in Poland.



In Poland, a Chinese employee of the network equipment Huawei has been arrested on suspicion of espionage. According to the state news agency PAP is also a Polish cyber security expert in custody.

According to the Polish state TVP TVP, it is a senior Huawei employee and a former employee of the Polish Domestic Security Authority. The two men would be jailed for three months.

Accordingly, the local offices of Huawei were searched. The telecom company Orange Polska said that the Polish domestic intelligence service had already searched the offices of the company on Tuesday while securing materials from an employee.

Other intelligence agencies accuse Huawei of espionage

Western intelligence agencies led by the US accuse Huawei that equipment or cell phones could contain a backdoor for spies to obtain government or corporate secrets. Huawei rejects the allegations.

Nevertheless, Australia and New Zealand have now excluded Huawei from 5G expansion. Other Western states are also considering whether they should continue to allow Huawei equipment in their telecom networks. The group is said to have a close proximity to the party leadership in Beijing.

Huawei: The Group and the KP

The suspicion of espionage had already led to a serious diplomatic crisis between Canada and China last year. The Canadian authorities arrested Huawei's financial manager Meng Wanzhou in early December, and it was not until days later that Meng was released on a million-dollar bail. China then arrested several Canadians in China.
