Huawei accuses the United States government of threatening its employees

Huawei accuses the United States government of threatening its employees”

Huawei on Tuesday said the USA government was using its judicial and administrative powers as well as other means to disrupt its business and that of its partners.

FBN's Susan Li with the latest on the protests in Hong Kong and reports Huawei is accusing the USA of cyberattacks.

Chinese telecommunication giant Huawei has accused US authorities of using cyberattacks to interrupt its business and deploying police to harass employees, allegations that coincide with a growing investigation into the company's global conduct.

"For the past several months, the USA government has been leveraging its political and diplomatic influence to lobby other governments to ban Huawei equipment", the company said in its statement.

The statement goes on to accuse the USA of using cyberattacks "to infiltrate Huawei's intranet and internal information systems", relying on law enforcement officials to "threaten" and "menace", current and former employees to "turn against the company", and using intimidation tactics, among other charges.

EMBATTLED CHINESE tech firm Huawei is spitting feathers at the moment after a report suggested that it was under investigation for stolen technology. Huawei, a flagship technology company in China, has also become a key bargaining chip in what is a deepening trade war with the U.S.

Meanwhile, Huawei is preparing to launch a new line of high-end smartphones in Europe, Reuters reported.

The United States is pressing allies, with mixed success, to reject Chinese 5G technology, especially from the giant mobile phone company Huawei.

Huawei repeatedly has denied claims of intellectual property theft, though the company escalated its rhetoric on Tuesday by accusing Oliveira of attempted extortion. "He made further efforts to exert pressure on Huawei through senior government officials, trying to make the company cede to his demands and hand over large sums of money". Earlier this year, President Trump called Huawei "very dangerous" from security and military standpoints.

On Tuesday, the Chinese telecommunications equipment giant emitted a statement blasting the U.S. government for interfering in its operations for political purposes. In its statement Tuesday, it said that none of the accusations brought against it by the USA government have been supported by sufficient evidence.

"We strongly condemn the malign, concerted effort by the USA government to discredit Huawei and curb its leadership position in the industry", Huawei wrote.
