Following a civil trial from T-Mobile and other telecommunications companies against the Chinese network and telecommunications company Huawei, the US Department of Justice is reportedly a criminal corporation. According to a report by Wall Street Journal DOJ is close to filing a charge against Huawei for the theft of business secrets, including the technology used in a robot developed by T-Mobile to test smartphones.
The Report comes a week after a Huawei employee was arrested in Poland for espionage charges. And Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December based on US charges that she was responsible for violating US sanctions against Iran. In November, the US government began to put pressure on Allies to ban Huawei network hardware from their telecommunications systems over espionage problems.
Huawei has long been suspected of taking advantage of Chinese economic espionage and forced transfer of technologies from foreign businesses operating in China. For over a decade, Cisco sought Huawei to steal the routing software source code and incorporate it into Huawei network products. In 2012, Huawei directors claimed that the offensive code had come from a third party and was freely available on the Internet, a claim that Cisco's vice president Mark Chandler strongly refused.
In the recent civil case originally filed in 2014, a jury in Seattle found that Huawei had stolen robotics from a T-Mobile lab. Huawei had used the access it received from being a handset provider to get copies of the robot's specifications and steal software, parts, and business secrets from the lab. According to T-Mobile's original filing in the package, Huawei originally tried to cover its actions, but ultimately admitted that its employees abused parts and information about T-Mobile's robot in coordination with Huawei R & D. So Huawei could build and improve his own test robot. "
