ZTE banned from buying US components for 7 years

Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 08:58 CET | News
ZTE has been banned from buying components or parts from the US for seven years, after the US Commerce Department said the company violated the terms of a settlement reached last year. ZTE was fined for shipping equipment to Iran and North Korea in times of sanction. It then paid a bonus to the employees that engaged in these practices and gave false information over the disciplinary action taken, the Commerce Department found, violating the terms of the settlement.
