The Chinese national arrested is Weijing W., who according to Polish authorities also used the names Stanisław, Staszek, and was Huawei's sales director in Poland.

The AP wrote that the arrest of the Huawei employee is "a fresh sign that a U.S. dispute with China over its ban on the company is spilling over to Europe, Huawei's biggest foreign market".

Another senior Huawei employee, Vice-President Meng Wanzhou, who is the daughter of the founder of the company, was also arrested in Canada last month.

A BBC report said that Huawei "told the BBC it was aware of the situation and was looking into it". Huawei has repeatedly dismissed claims that it is a Beijing tool, with company officials noting that it is an independent entity and has never been implicated in any spy rings - until now.

The Huawei employee is a Chinese citizen responsible for sales to public-sector clients in Poland, according to TVPInfo.

Huawei, as CNN reports, is one of the foremost telecom companies in China, selling more phones than Apple, with an interest in branching out into a larger, global market.

He and a Chinese citizen who is a manager for the Chinese tech firm Huawei in Poland were arrested Tuesday and have been charged with spying for China.

Per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News , Peyton Manning sent along an endorsement of Gase to team CEO Christopher Johnson. Injuries and personnel errors doomed the Dolphins, and they were never close to contention in Gase's tenure again.

Its media-shy founder, Ren Zhengfei, is also a former engineer in China's army and joined the Communist Party in 1978. And, as The Verge points out, China's National Intelligence law states that companies in the country are required to "support, cooperate with, and collaborate in national intelligence work".

In a statement, Huawei said it "complies with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries where it operates, and we require every employee to abide by the laws and regulations in the countries where they are based". The arrest was made as a part of ongoing investigations into the alleged violations of United States trade sanctions.

An arrest of a Huawei executive in Poland for espionage might corroborate those concerns. She is out on bail in Canada awaiting extradition proceedings. In New Zealand, the Government Communications Security Bureau turned down Spark's bid to use Huawei equipment on the new 5G network in November.

Chinese authorities then detained two Canadians - a former diplomat and a business consultant - on suspicion of endangering national security.

Ambassador Lu Shaye said on Wednesday that Canada's demand for the release of the two detained Canadians reflects "double standards" born of "western egotism and white supremacy".
