Huawei disputes legality of 5G bans in Poland, Romania

Tuesday 3 November 2020 | 09:47 CET | News
Huawei told top EU lawmakers that Poland and Romania risk violating EU law with new 5G security rules, according to Politico.eu. In a letter sent to EU competition chief Margrethe Vestager on 11 September, the company said the proposed 5G security rules in Poland and Romania "are predicated on several violations of EU law." The company also attacked bilateral "joint declarations" signed by the two countries with the US government. The letter was obtained by Politico through an access to documents request.
