The Chinese group Huawei separates from its employee arrested in Poland, an employee accused of spying by the Polish authorities. His office has been searched, the charges against him remain confidential. But the telecom giant wants to bury this case as soon as possible. And not, again, be accused of being the armed wing of China in cyberspace surveillance abroad.
" We made this decision because this incident discredits our group, " said the Chinese giant in a pithy statement, a few days after the arrest of his employee .
Huawei assures that the reasons for its arrest have nothing to do with the activities of the company and that it always respects the laws and regulations of the countries where it is installed.
The company does not want to be associated with an espionage affair, whereas Huawei has been fighting for months against its bad reputation: a pharmacy in the Chinese intelligence service.
Several Western capitals are wondering: should he really entrust to it the development of 5G on mobile phones? What to think of this juggernaut founded by an engineer of the Chinese army? For the United States, for Australia, for New Zealand, the answer is no. There is no question of giving him the keys to their network. The risk of cyber-espionage is too great.
Huawei replicates, plays transparency, invites reporters on his campus in southern China. But the atmosphere remains tense. Especially since the arrest of the daughter of Huawei's founder in Canada last month, at the request of Washington.
