Huawei sues USA government over equipment ban

China blocks canola shipments from Canada's Richardson

"We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort", Huawei Rotating Chairman Guo Ping stated.

Chinese tech giant Huawei is launching a US court challenge to a law that labels the company a security risk and would limit its access to the American market for telecom equipment.

Guo said the U.S. government had "mislead the American public" regarding Huawei and "never presented evidence" regarding its allegations against the company.

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.

Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou's lawyer has today raised comments made by President Donald Trump during her brief appearance at a Canadian court in relation to her extradition request from the United States.

Huawei in a statement said it has filed a complaint in a US district court in Texas challenging its addition to the US National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA).

Song Liuping, Huawei's Chief Legal Officer, stressed, "Section 889 is based on numerous false, unproven, and untested propositions. No contrary evidence has been offered", he said.

It comes as the biggest global maker of network equipment fights a USA campaign to persuade allies to shun Huawei that threatens to block access to major markets as phone carriers prepare to invest billions of dollars in next-generation, 5G systems.




Turnbull also explained that Australia's decision to ban Huawei and ZTE last summer was carried out to defend the country's sovereignty and as a "hedge against changing times".

Estimates from industry sources show that allowing Huawei to compete would reduce the cost of wireless infrastructure by between 15% and 40%.

"It is an abuse of the United States lawmaking process, this strips Huawei of its due process ... and goes against the very nature of the Constitution", Guo said. Huawei is willing to address the U.S. Government's security concerns. The 5G telecommunication can be deemed as an improvement that Huawei was slated to lead.

"In consultation with operators and vendors, we worked hard this year to see if there were ways to protect our 5G networks if high-risk vendor equipment was present anywhere in these networks".

Canada approved extradition proceedings on March 1 this year, but Ms Meng has since sued Canada's Government for procedural wrongs in her arrest.

On Monday, the Chinese government accused the two men of acting together to steal state secrets.

Shifting tone, Ren in mid-February said Meng's arrest was politically motivated and "not acceptable". Under the country's national intelligence law, it would be required to cooperate with Chinese authorities if asked. Prosecutors allege that Skycom is a hidden subsidiary of Huawei, while Huawei maintains they are two independent companies. Huawei has repeatedly denied the claims.

Several U.S. lawmakers, blasting Huawei's close ties to the Beijing government, told VOA's Mandarin service that Huawei "should never be in America doing business" and they will "do whatever we can to block that".
