On the recommendation of the Department of Justice, a grand jury indicted the Chinese company Huawei for economic espionage. The Free Beacon reports:
Federal grand juries in New York and Washington state have indicted Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies and its subsidiaries for stealing robotics secrets from T-Mobile, and illegally doing business with Iran, Trump administration officials announced Monday.
A grand jury in New York charged that Huawei Technologies operated a front company in Iran, Skycom Tech Co., that illegally hid financial transactions involving tens of millions of dollars with Iran in a bid to avoid U.S. sanctions laws aimed at curbing financial dealings by the Islamist regime in Tehran.
Separately, a 10-count indictment issued in Seattle states that Huawei Device Co., Ltd. and Huawei Device USA, Inc., Huawei subsidiaries, stole through economic espionage protected information on a T-Mobile phone testing robot called Tappy. The spying involved breaking in to the company’s facilities in stealing trade secrets.
Huawei, according to emails obtained by U.S. investigators, also offered cash bonuses to company employees worldwide for stealing foreign technology to support the company.
America is locked in a deadly struggle with Communist China, and it must prosecute this war on all fronts.
