Oxford University Bars Donations From Huawei

A Seattle jury found Huawei liable in a civil lawsuit brought by T Mobile for theft of robotic tech. Now the DOJ is ready to file criminal charges

A Seattle jury found Huawei liable in a civil lawsuit brought by T Mobile for theft of robotic tech. Now the DOJ is ready to file criminal charges

Federal prosecutors "are pursuing a criminal investigation" of Chinese tech giant Huawei for allegedly stealing the trade secrets of USA firms, with the case in part based on allegations raised in civil lawsuits, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

While new funds won't be accepted from the company, Oxford says ongoing projects supported by Huawei funding will continue, and those include two projects already approved by the university that have received £692,000 in funds from Huawei.

T-Mobile accused Huawei of stealing the technology behind a robot T-Mobile had developed to test mobile phones.

Chinese firms have always been accused of engaging in intellectual property theft-something the Justice Department said it was clamping down on last November by working alongside the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

It's no secret that Huawei and the USA government don't see eye to eye. There are accusations that Huawei, the world's biggest maker of telecom network gear, is controlled by China's ruling Communist Party or is required to facilitate Chinese spying.

Emily Langlie, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Seattle, declined to comment, as did a spokeswoman for T-Mobile and a spokesman for Huawei.

T-Mobile alleged in a 2014 lawsuit that Huawei employees stole technology relating to a smartphone-testing robot T-Mobile had in a lab in Bellevue, Washington.

Sen.r Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) to impose a ban on selling USA technology to Chinese companies in violation of sanctions laws and export control.

New Zealand blocked a proposal to use Huawei telecoms equipment over national security concerns, and the Australian government has banned Huawei from providing 5G technology to its wireless networks.

Huawei has denied claims it poses a spying risk.

In early December, Canadian authorities arrested Huawei's CFO Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver at the request of the United States, which wants to extradite her to face fraud charges for allegedly violating its sanctions against Iran. This time, however, the US Department of Justice' investigation isn't focusing on some grand national security threat but on the Huawei's repeated theft of trade secrets from US companies.

Investigations tied to Huawei theft from T-mobile.

.

Huawei has been inundated with one bad news story after another for the last seven weeks, including two high profile arrests, a federal criminal investigation, a potential executive order banning the sale of its products in the USA and a bill in Congress that would block US companies from selling chips or components to Huawei.

The company was founded in 1987 by Ren Zhengfei, a former officer in the People's Liberation Army, prompting questions about possible improper links to the Chinese state.
