Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. said it had fired Wang Weijing, its employee suspected of spying for the Chinese government and who had been arrested in Poland, Bloomberg News reported, citing an emailed statement from Huawei.
The company said the employee had brought them dishonor, and that "his alleged actions have no relation to the company."
Wang, Huawei's sales director in Poland, had been arrested along with a Polish ex-security agent, and will be held under arrest for three months. If found guilty, they may serve up to 10 years in prison.
Earlier, Polish security services stormed the offices of Huawei, Orange SA and Poland's Office of Electronic Communications as part of the investigation on alleged espionage.
