A few days ago, we reported that two employees of Huawei were arrested in Poland for allegations of espionage. One of these employees is a citizen of Poland, while the other is Chinese. The Chinese National is a sales director while the Polish is a former high-ranking official at Poland’s internal security agency. Yesterday, Huawei officially responded to the report and distant itself from the Chinese employee. Huawei said that Wang Weijing, an employee of Huawei’s representative office in Poland, was arrested for violating Polish laws on personal grounds. The incident had a negative impact on Huawei’s global reputation and according to the management regulations, Huawei decided to immediately terminate his appointment.
The company said that it has always complied with all applicable laws and regulations of the countries in which it operates and requires all employees to comply with the laws and regulations of the countries in which they operate. On Friday, the Chinese Embassy in Poland confirmed that the Chinese citizen arrested in Poland on were local Huawei employees. The company further said that his alleged actions have no relation to the company. In accordance with the terms and conditions of Huawei’s labor contract, we have made this decision because the incident in question has brought Huawei into disrepute.
