US accuses Huawei of stealing trade secrets from American companies

Friday 14 February 2020 | 08:51 CET | News
The US has filed a new lawsuit against Huawei for alleged stealing of trade secrets from US companies. The suit filed in federal court in New York by the Department of Justice charges Huawei and its subsidiaries with 16 counts of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, as well as conspiracy to steal trade secrets stemming from the China-based company's alleged "long-running practice of using fraud and deception to misappropriate sophisticated technology from US counterparts".
