Telecom Company Huawei Sues America Government Over Product Ban

Image may contain: 1 personHuawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is a Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and consumer electronics manufacturer, headquartered in Shenzhen. Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
Ren Zhengfei , a former military engineer in the People's Liberation Army, founded Huawei in 1987. At the time of its establishment, Huawei focused on manufacturing phone switches , but has since expanded to include building telecommunications networks, providing operational and consulting services and equipment to enterprises 
Huawei has filed a lawsuit against the US government over a ban that restricts federal agencies from using its products. It said the US failed to provide evidence to support the ban, and the firm also rejected claims
it had links to the Chinese government.
The US has restricted the use of Huawei products over national security concerns. It has also been lobbying allies to shun the Chinese telecoms firm. Huawei is one of the world's largest telecommunications equipment and services providers.
The lawsuit is part of a wider push by the company in recent months to challenge claims its products pose security risks.
"The US Congress has repeatedly failed to produce any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products. We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort," Huawei Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said in a statement.
Should we worry about Huawei?
"This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming US consumers."Speaking at a press conference in Shenzhen, Mr Ping also accused the US government of misleading the public about Huawei and of hacking its servers.
Huawei's cyber security chief John Suffolk said it was "the most open [and] transparent company in the world". But the company was later criticised for cutting the live feed of its conference before journalists could begin asking questions.
What does the lawsuit say?
Huawei is challenging the constitutionality of Section 889 of the National Defense Authorisation Act. The complaint has been filed in a US federal court in Texas.Huawei also rejected claims it had any links to the state, saying in a statement the firm was "not owned, controlled, or influenced" by the Chinese government.
Several governments around the world, including Australia and New Zealand, have blocked telecoms companies from using Huawei gear in next-generation 5G mobile networks, citing security concerns.
Huawei is beginning its fight back. It is not just the company's reputation that is at stake, but perhaps the future of the global internet too.
The US argues that the political realities in China mean all companies are beholden to the will of the Chinese Communist Party which could use Huawei to spy on, or to disrupt, critical next generation mobile networks. Huawei's case is that there is no evidence that it has ever done anything to harm the interests of its consumers.
In the end, it may come down to how much latitude the courts decide the US Congress has in defining national security interests. The case, if it proceeds, could pass through a series of appeals and take many months.
As China continues to push out into the world, the big question is to what extent the unreformed system of Leninist control back home should be a concern.
What are the other points of contention?
In addition to restricting the purchase of Huawei products, the US is also pursuing criminal charges against the firm and its chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou.
Ms Meng, who is the daughter of Huawei's founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested in Canada in December, at the request of the US.
She was detained on suspicion of fraud and breaching US sanctions on Iran, and faces extradition to the US.

America will win at the court because it is an American court

Endy Edeson

Obanla: If it happens that way, you are insinuating that America judiciary is "one sided"

Oluwatoyin Obanla

America will consider the America national security over any other thing. A Russian technology company have had similar issue with US before and matter was also resolved in the America court when the US government won
