The US Department of Justice on Monday charged Huawei with theft of trade secrets, wire fraud and obstruction of justice.
A 10-count indictment alleges Huawei stole trade secrets from T-Mobile beginning in 2012. Huawei also allegedly offered bonuses to employees who stole confidential information from other companies, notably US carrier T-Mobile. In addition, a 13-count indictment charged four defendants, including Huawei and Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, with financial fraud. The indicted defendants also include affiliates Huawei USA and Skycom.
