Senior Huawei Canada executive Scott Bradley has stepped down

Senior Huawei Canada executive Scott Bradley has stepped down

The director of government company Safe City Malta (who is also head of the Malta Financial Services Authority) Joseph Cuschieri said discussions had to be held with the Data Protection Commissioner to explain plans for a Huawei-sponsored idea for a "safe city" linking up facial recognition CCTV cameras to identity databases. Last year, Huawei helped Orange Polska to roll out its next-generation 5G mobile networks in the country.

On Friday, Poland arrested a Huawei director and one of its own former cybersecurity experts and charged them with spying for China.

The arrests came amid growing concerns shared by European Union institutions and governments across the world about the activities of Huawei on their territory.

Australia and New Zealand banned Huawei equipment from the planned 5G networks of carriers in the countries and the head of British spy agency MI6 said last month the government needs to decide whether to ban the company.

"Huawei is aware of the situation, and we are looking into it", a spokesman for the company told reporters.

A Chinese employee of Huawei has been arrested in Poland on allegations of spying in the latest security scandal to plague China's biggest and most notorious phone maker.

The detainees were charged with Article 130 paragraph 1 of espionage against the Republic of Poland.

TVP identified the arrested Chinese man as Weijing W., saying he was a director in Poland at Huawei. They will remain in custody for three months.


The pair was arrested by the country's Internal Security Agency on Tuesday and hit with espionage charges, according to a release from the agency.

China is highly concerned over the issue, the press office at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

In December, Canadian authorities arrested a top Huawei executive, Meng Wanzhou, at the behest of US authorities as part of an investigation into alleged violations of USA trade sanctions, raising tensions with China at a time when Washington and Beijing are engaged in a broader trade war.

While one was identified as the Huawei employee, the other was described as a Polish citizen and former security official.

Norway's comments come at a time in the country is seeking to stamp out vulnerabilities in its telecoms networks. They also arrested a Polish employee of the local subsidiary of European communications giant Orange.

In addition to this, Huawei have come under fire from authorities in Norway, Germany, the U.S., the UK, Australia and New Zealand, with several countries outright banning the use of their devices or equipment used in 5G mobile networks. Orange spokesman Wojciech Jabczynski said the company handed over an employee's belongings to the authorities. She is out on bail in Canada awaiting extradition proceedings.

During his time at Huawei, he attempted to create a favourable reputation for the Chinese company in Canada and to dispel worries that it is closely connected to the Chinese government.
