Huawei denies altering its equipment to facilitate spying and has set up testing centres in Britain, Canada and continental Europe to allow governments to examine its technology. The case asks the court to reject as unconstitutional part of the legislation setting military spending levels. That provision bars any executive agency, government contractor or company that receives a government loan or grant from using Huawei and ZTE equipment, according to the complaint. To make matters worse, the U.S. government is trying to prevent Huawei from participating in the construction of 5G networks in other countries.
As previously reported Huawei has lawyered-up big-time for this choreographed counter-attack against the USA, which includes a clear move to test the loyalty of its European allies.
"I think this is a move that carries more political weight than any litigation significance", Yang said, adding that the company's case was more about challenging the legitimacy of US accusations.
Huawei just upped the ante in its fight with the USA over its telecommunication devices.
Richardson spokeswoman Hayley Johnson confirmed that China revoked the company's import permit for canola, after Reuters earlier reported a document listing approved shippers posted on the website of the Chinese customs administration on March 1 showed the cancellation. "We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort", Guo Ping, Huawei Rotating Chairman said in a statement. He also said it would delay the release of 5G communications. The court statement came after a federal court in Seattle, Washington, announced charges against two of the company's businesses in January. The U.S. government has charged her with lying to banks about doing business with Iran. She is fighting extradition to the United States.
The legal action compared with a more restrained response in December emphasising "trust in justice" after the arrest of CFO Meng Wanzhou.
Huawei said it hopes the USA removes this section so it can work with the US and President Donald Trump. And is it really independent from China's authoritarian government?
"I don't see how (Huawei) can really escape that result", said Schwinn.
China receives about 40 per cent of Canada's canola exports, and the revocation of Richardson's permit hurts the entire chain of industries involved in the market, the Canola Council of Canada has said. This might become a landmark case when it comes to the way foreign companies are treated in the States under the premise of national security. Congress told American businesses to avoid Huawei products.
China-US row ERUPTS: Huawei accuses US of HACKING EMAILS as Beijing SUES Washington
Huawei said Thursday that it has sued the us government to challenge a law that bans federal agencies from buying its telecommunications equipment, opening a new front in the metastasizing global contest between the Chinese technology giant and Washington.
The United States makes up 20 to 25 percent of the worldwide market for computer and telecom technology.
It says the law causes the company "concrete and particularized injury, and imminent future injury" and subjects it to a "burden that is severe, permanent and inescapable" that amounts to a corporate "death penalty".
"The US government is sparing no effort to smear the company", Guo said at a news conference at the company's headquarters in the southern city of Shenzhen.
The latest suspension was completely "reasonable and legal" and aimed at protecting the health and safety of Chinese citizens, Lu said.
The lawsuit is Huawei's latest attempt to fight back against United States warnings that the company could serve as a Trojan horse for China's intelligence services.
A law recently enacted by Beijing that obliges Chinese companies to aid the government on national security has added to the concerns about Huawei. It might also cause higher prices.
Backers of the ban against Huawei say the Chinese government could use the company's equipment for espionage, though the feds haven't provided evidence that backs up that claim.
Canada and China are locked in a dispute over trade and telecoms technology that has ensnared the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies Ltd, the world's largest telecommunications equipment maker, who faces USA criminal charges. They also gave assurances again that the company would never install backdoors into their equipment and that it puts the security concerns of its customers first. George Grow was the editor.
