Polish Police Arrest Huawei Executive, Accused Of Spying For China

The Orange employee, "Piotr D.", reportedly had access to a government network used for confidential communications, and was a former agent with Poland's Internal Security Agency, the ABW.

Polish authorities have announced that Huawei's offices were searched last Tuesday on charges of espionage and one employee of the company was arrested.

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

The AP wrote that the arrest of the Huawei employee is "a fresh sign that a U.S. dispute with China over its ban on the company is spilling over to Europe, Huawei's biggest foreign market".

Huawei is also mired in a U.S. case alleging violations of trade sanctions.

"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", the statement pointed out.
