Poland said Friday it had arrested a Chinese telecoms executive suspected of spying for China, with local media identifying him as a Huawei director. Huawei is facing increased spying accusations from the USA and its allies. Both are accused of espionage.

The two men were arrested on Tuesday.

Poland's Internal Security Agency accuses Huawei's sales director in Poland of spying on behalf of China, arresting the Chinese citizen along with one other man.

A Chinese Huawei "director" and a Polish cyber business specialist have been arrested in Poland on suspicion of spying for China, it has emerged.

Orange said in a statement that the Polish security services had gathered material related to an employee, but it did not know if the investigation was linked to the employee's professional work.

Huawei said in a brief statement that the company was "aware of the situation" and "looking into it" but had no further comment for now.

T-Mobile, for example, trolled AT&T with a video clip on Twitter that shows someone placing a "9G" sticker on their smartphone. Donovan said the 5G E icon will be used in 400 markets across the USA where AT&T has deployed advanced LTE technologies.

Maciej Wasik, deputy head of Poland's special service, said that the operation that resulted in the arrest of the two suspects had been underway for a long time and was planned with care. Huawei and Orange could not immediately be reached for comment.

In December, Canadian authorities arrested a top Huawei executive, Meng Wanzhou, at the behest of US authorities as part of an investigation into alleged violations of USA trade sanctions. They took "documents and electronic data" from Huawei's office, said The Wall Street Journal. If found guilty they could face 10 years in jail.

That allegation has not been proven publicly and the company denies any link to China's government.

Her arrest highlighted US accusations that Huawei broke sanctions against Iran, but the USA has also been pushing to try to curtail Huawei's influence, warning about the company's possible ties to Chinese intelligence and calling on countries to exclude the company as they build new 5G networks.

It added: "Huawei complies with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries where it operates, and we require every employee to abide by the laws and regulations in the countries where they are based".
