Poland arrests two over spying for China, including Huawei employee

Poland arrests Huawei employee on allegations of spying Bad time to be Polish in China  by Alex Linder

Chinese telecommunications conglomerate Huawei on Saturday said it had dismissed a Chinese worker arrested in Poland on allegations of spying for Beijing.

Poland security officials have yet to state the extent and details of the information leaked.

The two men were arrested Tuesday, according to Poland's Internal Security Agency.

The Polish national, Piotr D., was a former high-ranking officer of the Internal Security Agency until 2011.

Poland security officials also searched the offices of Orange, one of the most subscribed telecommunication providers in Poland. Just $5 a month.

Nonetheless, intelligence bods recommended banning the use of the kit, and official blocks are in place for state-funded projects in the US, Australia and New Zealand. Her arrest has sparked a surge of patriotism in China with companies encouraging staff to buy Huawei smartphones, with several companies offering employee subsidies to buy phones from the home-grown company. The U.S. has been pushing European governments to block Huawei from telecom networks amid a wider dispute over trade between the world's two biggest economies.

Poland has detained two men suspected of spying for China, public broadcaster TVP Info reported on Friday.

Poland's Special Services agency accused both men of working for "Chinese services and to the detriment of Poland". Further indictments are expected, he said.

"My best-case outcome is that Europe uses this window of opportunity and figures out how to have a minimal risk for the best network possible", said Jan-Peter Kleinhans, an IT security expert at Stiftung Neue Verantwortung, a Berlin-based think-tank.

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

Both of them will remain in custody for the next three months and could face up to 10 years in prison.

Counter intelligence services in Poland have arrested the sales director of Huawei on charges of spying while the local offices of the Chinese company were raided and searched, according to reports in the Polish media.

Huawei, on the other hand, said that it's aware of the situation but denies comments for now.

"In accordance with the terms and conditions of Huawei's labour contract, we have made this decision because the incident has brought Huawei into disrepute", it added.

"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.
