Two men have been reportedly arrested under the charges of espionage. The first person is a Chinese national working for Huawei as a Sales Director. Whereas the other person arrested is a Polish national who recently worked for the Polish subsidiary of French telecommunications firm Orange.
According to Polish TV broadcaster Telewizja Polska (TVP), they will be kept under detention for at least three months.
Huawei spokesperson said “Huawei is aware of the situation, and we are looking into it. We have no comment for the time being.”
The spokesperson further clarified that the company complies with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries where they are based.
Orange and Poland’s Internal Security Agency were not available to comment on the issue.
Huawei has earlier also been in trouble when its Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada last month. She is the daughter of the company’s founder Ren Zhengfei and was detained on allegations of violating U.S. sanctions.
US allies have also raised alarm with countries like U.K., Australia and New Zealand also showing concerns that it may be a threat to their national security.
Huawei troubles are increased further after it has been blocked from participating in 5G networks of Australia and New Zealand due to concerns for national security.
