Huawei Canada Senior Vice President resigns - to work as a "special consultant"

6 2018 shows a Huawei sign outside a store selling mobile phones in Beijing.- Despite being essentially barred from the critical US market Huawei surpassed Apple to become the world's number two smartphone maker in the

Huawei's local offices were also searched, TVP reported.

China's embassy in Poland named him as Weijing Wang.

On Thursday, a Warsaw court agreed to prosecutors' requests to arrest the two men for three months.

Orange Poland told The Associated Press on Friday that officials from Poland's Internal Security Agency searched the company's headquarters in Warsaw on Tuesday and that as part of operation "we handed over belongings of one of our employees". Both the employee and the Pole, he said, had "carried out espionage activities against Poland".

While the MateBook 13 was certainly Huawei's biggest focus at CES 2019, it wasn't the only announcement from the company.

If found guilty, both the men which were accused of espionage could face prison sentences of up to 10 years.

Bowater said he was aware of the situation in Poland, but it appeared the individuals' actions had no relation to the company.

The Chinese national is a former employee of the country's consulate in the Baltic Sea port of Gdansk, according to TVPInfo.

Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, who is also the daughter of the company's founder, was detained in Canada last month on a USA extradition bid. United States officials are claiming Huawei is working with the Chinese government, allowing its equipment to be used by the government for spying on Western adversaries.

Samsung confirms launch date of flagship Galaxy S10 lineup
The phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor or Exynos 9820 processor depending on the markets. Samsung confirmed that they will be holding a Samsung Unpacked event on the 20th of February 2019 in San Francisco .

Orange Polska worked with Huawei previous year on introducing the latest fifth-generation, or 5G, wireless network in the country of 38 million.

Weijing Wang is a Polish language graduate of Beijing Foreign Studies University.

It is the leading telecommunications infrastructure company in the world and its smartphones are second only to Samsung in terms of global sales.

Orange told the AP it did not know if the suspicions against its employee were related to his professional duties and that it was working with the country's security agency.

Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou (孟晚舟) was last month arrested in Canada on request from the U.S., which suspects her of breaching Iranian sanctions.

The US has been cracking down on Huawei products, accusing the company of building backdoors for spying into its phones.

Any block on Huawei being involved in the roll-out of 5G in New Zealand could disproportionately impact 2degrees, which has largely relied on the Chinese firm to supply the bulk of its network technology.

Instead, many analysts in China have painted the attacks on Huawei as an attempt to thwart the rise of a Chinese technological giant, and insulate Western firms from competition.

In what was widely seen as retaliation by Beijing, two Canadians - a former diplomat and a business consultant - were detained in China on the grounds of national security.
