Huawei Sues US Government Over Telecom Equipment Ban

Huawei is increasingly in the crosshairs of the USA government and its allies, just as it's pushing for leadership in supplying fifth-generation wireless technology.

On the cusp of 5G, what we need is open and fair competition.

"Section 889 is unconstitutional in its singling out of Huawei by name, blacklisting it, damaging its reputation, and denying it any way to clear its name and escape sanction".

German operators, led by Deutsche Telekom, have warned that any requirement to rip out and replace Huawei equipment in existing networks could delay the rollout of 5G networks by years.

"Huawei is in a public relations blitzkrieg", Capri said.

Guo, who also accused the US government of hacking Huawei's servers and stealing its emails, insisted that Huawei has not and will never implant backdoors in its equipment. The Chinese company argues that the provision is a bill of attainder, a legislative punishment without trial that's prohibited by the U.S. Constitution.

"I don't see the USA backing away from these cases", said Peter Henning, a former federal prosecutor who is now a professor at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit.

"And some major telecom companies operate joint ventures with the Chinese government, but the NDAA has signaled out a few and ignored the back of the supply chain", Song Luiping, Huawei Chief Legal Officer said.

On the other hand, a Chinese-owned company called Ralls Corp successfully sued the Obama administration for blocking its attempt to build wind turbines near an OR military site.

He cited "harmful organisms" that he did not identify further, and said China's government "needs to protect the health and safety of its own people".

Captain Marvel Stands Tall In Her Nostalgic Cinematic Debut
She's a member of the Avengers , was the face of one side of the second superhero Civil War, and is a mentor to the new Ms. A mediocre plot, with no groundbreaking visual work on screen, and yet, Captain Marvel is hardly a stinker to give a miss.

At the same time, Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, who is Ren's daughter, faces potential extradition from Canada to the United States over charges of violating Iran sanctions.

Huawei says the U.S. government has failed to provide evidence to support the ban, and rejected claims of links to the Chinese government.

USA prosecutors have filed charges accusing Meng, who is the daughter of Huawei's founder, of lying to banks about dealings with Iran.

Huawei has finally had it with the USA government and it's taking the bait.

We will be watching this and other Huawei-related developments keenly to see what happens. "No contrary evidence has been offered", he said. But it sells very little in the United States after Congress said the company was a security risk in 2012.

Despite this, the U.S. Government has never provided any evidence supporting their accusations that Huawei poses a cyber security threat.

Huawei also repeated its argument that a blockade on its gear simply disadvantages Americans.

Industry experts say banning Huawei from markets for 5G equipment could reduce competition.

Prosecutors allege that Skycom is a hidden subsidiary of Huawei, while Huawei maintains they are two independent companies.

Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei Technologies sued the USA government on Thursday saying a law limiting its US business was unconstitutional, ratcheting up its fight back against a government bent on closing it out of global markets. Section 889 infringes upon our rights and harms USA consumers.
