Senior Executive of Huawei Canada Leaves Post As Company Faces Increasing Scrutiny

The Chinese tech company Huawei on Saturday announced it has fired a sales director who was arrested in Poland and charged with spying for China, saying he has brought the firm's reputation "into disrepute". "The homes of both men, also in Warsaw, were also searched, according to [Internal Security Agency] spokesman Stanislaw Zaryn".

Two Huawei employees have been arrested in Poland for allegedly spying on the Chinese government's behalf.

One of the GCSB's concerns - though not its only one - is understood to be China's "National Intelligence Law" passed by China's National People's Congress in June previous year.

China's Foreign Ministry reportedly said Wang's detention is highly concerning.

Huawei is a Chinese telecommunications company that is viewed by USA government officials as a national security risk.

In a separate memo Friday to Huawei Canada, Mr. Bradley himself said his departure was "not a sudden decision but rather an understanding over the past year-and-a-half that at some point, I would be moving on from a formal role with the company".

Huawei said in a statement that Wang's "alleged actions have no relation to the company".

"Huawei has always abided by applicable laws and regulations of the country where it is located. and requires all employees to abide by the country's laws and regulations", it said.

Unai Emery makes major change to Arsenal training after player concerns
But owner Stan Kroenke has not made funds available with Emery revealing that loan deals will be the limit of their ambition. Arsenal are fifth in the Premier League and have an upcoming FA Cup fourth-round tie at home to Manchester United .

The firm has repeatedly denied the accusations but several Western countries have restricted Huawei's access to their markets.

Europe should be "worried" about Huawei and other Chinese companies, given the mandatory cooperation they have to maintain with Chinese intelligence services, European Commission Vice-President for Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip said on Friday (7 December).

"Both carried out espionage activities against Poland", he said. The person has yet to be named by Poland officials, but WSJ's sources claim that the man is Weijing Wang, and is known as Stainslaw Wang in Poland.

Last month, Britain's largest mobile provider BT said that it would remove Huawei equipment from its cellular network after the foreign intelligence service called the company a security risk.

The company is also at the center of a diplomatic spat between China and Canada as its chief financial officer and Ren's daughter, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada on an extradition request from the United States.

New Zealand, Australia and the USA have all barred the company from involvement in their national 5G networks.

Some analysts doubt that even a widespread ban on Chinese telecoms networks equipment could possibly guarantee watertight security.
