Huawei disappointed in U.S. charges, denies any wrongdoing
Huawei Technologies is disappointed to learn of the charges brought against the company and the company denies any law violations or wrongdoing, according to a statement the company sent to CGTN on Tuesday.
After the arrest of the company's CFO Meng Wanzhou, Huawei sought an opportunity to discuss the Eastern District of New York investigation with the U.S. Justice Department, but the request was rejected without explanation, the statement said.
The allegations in the Western District of Washington trade secret indictment were already the subject of a civil suit that was settled by the parties after a Seattle jury found neither damages nor evidence of willful and malicious conduct, according to the company.
Huawei denies that it or its subsidiary or affiliate have committed any of the asserted violations of U.S. law set forth in each of the indictments, is not aware of any wrongdoing by Meng, and believes the U.S. courts will ultimately reach the same conclusion, the statement said.
