Huawei denies allegations contained in US Department of Justice indictments
The U.S. has indicted Huawei and the company’s CFO Meng Wanzhou, a pair of unsealed documents shows. One of the indictments charges Huawai with conspiracy to steal intellectual property belonging to T-Mobile and of obstructing justice in that case. The second indictment holds that Huawei and its CFO violated US sanctions on Iran by pretending it had sold Skycom, the company’s Iranian-affliate, while Huawei was actually both the buyer and the seller in the transaction.
In response, Huawei stated that “[t]he company denies that it or its subsidiary or affiliate have committed any of the asserted violations of US law set forth in each of the indictments, is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms Meng, and believes the US courts will ultimately reach the same conclusion”.
