The Huawei company has been involved in a scandal for an alleged theft of trade secrets from companies associated with the United States, such as T-Mobile.
“The United States is investigating the Chinese technology giant, Huawei Technologies Co, for allegedly stealing trade secrets from US associated companies.”
The world’s second-largest smartphone maker faced a case in which the federal jury in Seattle in 2017 declared it responsible for the theft of T-Mobile’s robotic technology. This investigation has advanced considerably since the date, and the final verdict for Huawei could arrive soon, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The spokeswoman for the US attorney’s office UU In Seattle Emily Langlie has said she will not comment on it. Huawei has grown in Europe and the United States, as well as in other parts of the world. US President Donald Trump has been pressuring many European allies to get them to block Huawei from telecommunications networks, which may be related to concerns that Beijing may use the company’s equipment to spy, something that He has denied outright from Huawei.
The company has also been charged with a criminal case involving Meng Wanzhou, its financial director, who carried out a conspiracy to defraud the banks and that they liquidate the transactions in Iran in violation of the sanctions of the United States.
The daughter of the founder of the company was arrested in Canada on December 1, and was released four weeks ago. At the moment he lives under restrictions in his one million dollar home in Vancouver, while waiting for his hearing for his extradition to the United States.
The allegations of the investigation are based on the theft of information from Huawei to T-Mobile, a US partner, when one of its engineers visited the Bellevue laboratory in Washington, to see the diagnosis of a robot that was called Tappy ( a robot that simulates the use of a user on the mobile phone).
That is, supposedly in 2014 the Huawei engineer put one of those robots in his computer bag and left with him.
In 2017 the jury agreed with T-Mobile, and found the embezzlement of T-Mobile’s trade secrets by Huawei, which broke a supply contract between the two companies, and stated that T-Mobile should receive 4 , 9 million Huawei dollars for damages to the company.
