Report: US federal prosecutors considering criminal case against Huawei

Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. is facing a criminal investigation from U.S. federal prosecutors for stealing trade secrets from U.S. businesses, which includes the technology behind a robotic testing device used by T-Mobile US Inc., The Wall Street Journal reported Jan. 16.

The report, citing anonymous sources, also claims that the probe is far along and could lead to an indictment soon. The federal investigation reportedly sprang from civil lawsuits against Huawei.

The report is the latest in a series of negative high-profile incidents for Huawei, a prominent global vendor of telecommunications equipment that has signed dozens of commercial 5G contracts with carriers around the world.

National security concerns have led to federal or commercial bans on Huawei's services in countries including the U.S., New Zealand and Australia.

In December 2018, Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada after U.S. government officials requested her detainment for allegedly violating sanctions against Iran.

On Jan. 11, a Huawei employee and former Polish security services officer were reportedly arrested on suspicions of spying.

As a result of these incidents, the company’s founder on Jan. 15 said that he expects slow growth in international markets in 2019.
