China's Huawei 'fires' employee arrested in Poland

A Chinese manager at tech giant Huawei was arrested in Poland and charged with espionage on behalf of China

The country's security services searched the offices of Huawei as well as Orange Polska, public television said.

The pair was arrested by the country's Internal Security Agency on Tuesday and hit with espionage charges, according to a release from the agency.

Spying, and working in concert with the Chinese government, are the two chief allegations several Western nations are leveling against Huawei, which recently overtook Apple as the world's second-largest smartphone manufacturer.

Poland is Huawei's headquarters for Central and Eastern Europe and the Nordic region. 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. Further indictments are expected, he said.

Polish state television TVP reported that the men have proclaimed their innocence, but Zaryn said he could not confirm that.

Both men have reportedly heard the charges against them and will be held for three-months.

The Huawei employee is a Chinese citizen responsible for sales to public-sector clients in Poland, according to TVPInfo.

Weijing Wang is a Polish language graduate of Beijing Foreign Studies University. Poland's Internal Security Agency has charged a Chinese manager at Huawei in Poland and one of its own former officers with espionage against Poland on behalf of China.

He had access to key information, including the functioning of SŁR, the Polish Government Communication Network which essentially allows secret transmission of information to high-ranking state officials.

And in December, Huawei's CFO was arrested by Canadian police, amid allegations she broke sanctions on selling equipment to Iran - something the firm again denied.

Even so, the US, Britain, Australia and New Zealand have announced plans to remove Huawei equipment from their cellular networks, leaving Canada as the only country in the "Five Eyes" intelligence network not to take steps against the Chinese firm.

Polish authorities arrested an unnamed Chinese executive on Tuesday.

Huawei's USA market dried up after a congressional panel said in 2012 the company and its smaller Chinese rival ZTE Corp. were potential security risks and told phone companies to avoid using their technology.

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. She is out on bail in Canada awaiting extradition proceedings.

In what was widely seen as retaliation by Beijing, two Canadians - a former diplomat and a business consultant - were detained in China on the grounds of national security.
