Polish authorities detained and charged a local sales director of Huawei Technologies Co., a Chinese national, with conducting high-level espionage on behalf of China, amid widening global scrutiny by Washington and its allies of the technology giant.

The arrest is another bombshell for Huawei, following the early December detention of the company’s chief financial officer in Canada, at the U.S.’s request, on charges related to Iranian sanctions.

For years, Washington has labeled Huawei a national security threat, saying it could be forced by China to use its knowledge of telecommunication equipment it sells around the world to tap into, or disable foreign communication networks.

Huawei is one of the world’s leaders in the new 5G technology. So is China’s ZTE.
