Huawei fires top executive charged with espionage

Huawei has sacked the Chinese executive arrested on espionage charges in Poland last week, as the Chinese tech giant tries hard to distance itself from the incident.

The move came after Polish authorities arrested Huawei sales director Wang Weijing, also known as Stanislaw Wang, in Warsaw on charges of spying on Poland for Beijing along with a former Polish security official.

The news has deepened international concerns about Huawei, the world’s largest telecom equipment manufacturer, which is facing problems amid growing suspicion over its ties to the Chinese government.

Huawei claimed Wang acted alone, saying his actions had no relation to the company.

“Huawei has decided to terminate the employment of Mr. Wang Weijing, who was arrested on suspicion of breaking Polish law,” Huawei said in a statement on Saturday.
