Spy&State: Huawei Founder Says Firm Does Not Spy For China

Recommended Posts

Huawei’s [HWT.UL] founder Ren Zhengfei on Tuesday rejected claims his company is used by the Chinese government to spy and said he missed his daughter, who is being held by Canadian authorities, the Financial Times newspaper reported. Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer, was detained in Canada last month at the request of U.S. authorities who allege she misled banks about the company’s control of a firm operating in Iran. Huawei had “never received any request from any government to provide improper information”, the newspaper reported Ren as saying in an interview with reporters in the southern city of Shenzhen. “I still love my country, I support the Communist party, but I will never do anything to harm any country in the world,” he said, adding he missed his daughter “very much”.Huawei confirmed the accuracy of Ren’s comments to Reuters. Ren, a former military officer who founded Huawei in 1987 and largely keeps a low profile, said he owned 1.14 percent of the company’s shares. Beijing and Ottawa have been at odds since Meng’s arrest, which China’s foreign ministry on Tuesday called an abuse of legal procedures. On Monday, China sentenced a Canadian to death for drug smuggling, further damaging relations. Huawei, the world’s biggest producer of telecommunications equipment, has been facing intense scrutiny in the West over its relationship with China’s government and U.S.-led allegations that its devices could be used by Beijing for spying. No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the accusations, but some Western countries have restricted Huawei’s access to their markets. Poland said this week it could consider banning the use of Huawei products by public bodies, after it arrested a Chinese Huawei official.

Nothing's coincidence... Reng is a product of State. China made him a very rich man for a reason: we will  make you rich and you will use the company to spy on the rest of the world... Simply.  He says he would not hand over sensitive information yet it is a duty of all Chinese companies to hand any data to the Communist Party of China..

When the Communist party asks you to spy, you have to do it! No choice. So, Mr. Ren it's a challenge: be spy or die....
