U.S. Officials Accuse Huawei Of Stealing Trade Secrets And Assisting Iran

Taking the battle with Huawei a step further, prosecutors for the United States have accused the Chinese tech giants of stealing trade secrets by spying secretly on its users and also of helping Iran track in tracking protestors. Huawei has been on United States’ trade entity list barring it from any business with American companies since the United States accused Huawei of being a spying agent for Beijing. The accusations state that Huawei breached a racketeering law that counters organized crimes and also conspired to breach trade secrets from six American tech companies.

Huawei has continuously denied all allegations against it from the United States since the last one year. United States however have kept piling on the list of accusations. The most recent of which is that Huawei helped the Iran government track and detain anti-government protestors by installing surveillance equipment in 2009 in Tehran. Huawei pleaded not guilty to the earlier accusations and is still urging that it is not involved in any such activity. GengShuan, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, asked the United States to stop suppressing the Chinese companies without any reason and said such acts could hamper the United States’ image and credibility globally.

Huawei has been battling hard to tackle the absence of American tech companies from its business associates list. The job of manufacturing smartphones without Google is easier said than done for Huawei, as despite the company planning to come up with their own operating system, it is difficult to convince users to use it. The company more recently joined hands with other Chinese tech companies to come up with a platform that offers developers more incentives to post their apps on Huawei’s app store instead of the Google Play Store.
