Huawei accuses Trump government of launching cyberattacks

According to Huawei, the US government has used unscrupulous and illegal means to pressure. The firm accuses the authorities of « searching, detaining and even illegally arresting Huawei employees ». In other cases, FBI agents allegedly went to the homes of some of the group’s employees to incite them to disclose confidential information.
The group also discusses the illegal retention of documents and equipment. In particular, the Chinese group has been waiting for more than two years for the return of network equipment shipped from China to California for inspection. Last June, Huawei filed a complaint to this effect. Worse, the US authorities have also launched extensive cyber attacks on the computer system of the Chinese group « to infiltrate the intranet » and collect information on the projects of the firm. The group provides no evidence of its assertions.
By this manifesto-like statement, Huawei denies the latest accusations of patent theft. The US Justice Department is investigating the group after Rui Pedro Oliveira’s claims. The engineer claims that Huawei stole the design and patents from the smartphone camera he invented. The manufacturer admits to meeting Rui Pedro Oliveira in 2014 but no agreement has been reached. « Huawei categorically rejects Mr. Oliveira’s claims of patent infringement » asserts the group. Huawei accuses the engineer of wanting to extract money. For now, the Justice Department investigation is continuing.
