Huawei staff and Chinese military have deep links, study claims
A new analysis of CVs of Huawei staff appeared to reveal deeper links between the technology giant and China's military and intelligence bodies than had been previously acknowledged by the firm.
The paper, which looks at employment records of Huawei employees, concluded that "key mid-level technical personnel employed by Huawei have strong backgrounds in work closely associated with intelligence gathering and military activities." Some employees can be linked "to specific instances of hacking or industrial espionage conducted against Western firms," it claimed.
