U.S. 'probes Huawei for trade secret theft'

U.S. 'probes Huawei for trade secret theft'

Instead, President Trump eventually signed narrower legislation that bans the USA government from using equipment from Huawei or ZTE.

The company was found to have violated USA law in 2016 for selling USA technology to Iran, was fined up to US$1.2 billion and instructed to penalize its workers.

Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen said in the same statement: "Huawei and ZTE are two sides of the same coin".

Sen.r Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) to impose a ban on selling U.S. technology to Chinese companies in violation of sanctions laws and export control. However, the Chinese company told the Journal that the matter was resolved in an undisclosed settlement in 2017.

Establishing that it is US policy to enforce denial orders banning the export of USA parts and components to Chinese telecommunications companies that have violated US export control laws or sanctions.

This led the U.S.to impose a seven-year ban on the company buying from local suppliers.

Huawei has been under increasing pressure in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere amid growing concerns that Beijing could use the company's equipment for spying, something executives have denied.

Tensions have been heightened by the arrest of Huawei's chief financial officer in Canada for possible extradition to the United States. She is awaiting extradition hearings to the US while living under restrictions in her Vancouver home.

If Chinese telecommunications companies like Huawei violate U.S. regulations, they should be sanctioned. For at least three White House administrations, the USA has threatened to take new measures to punish China for the theft of American intellectual property.

The first companies indicted under the program were state-owned Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co., based in Jinjiang, China, and its Taiwan-based partner United Microelectronics Corp.

Jinhua and UMC have pleaded not guilty to the charges. They are scheduled to be arraigned next month.

Investigators are particularly interested in a 2014 legal dispute between Huawei and T-Mobile - which resulted in a Seattle jury finding the former liable for stealing designs and parts for a secret cell-phone testing robot a year ago.

Allegedly, the stolen technology is a robot called Tappy and belongs to T-Mobile.

Huawei said in a statement that it and T-Mobile settled their disputes in 2017 following a U.S. jury verdict that found "neither damage, unjust enrichment, nor willful and malicious conduct by Huawei in T-Mobile's trade secret claim". In a case brought forward in 2014, Huawei was charged with misappropriating robotic technology from one of T-Mobile's labs in Washington state.
