Huawei sacks employee arrested for allegedly spying for China

From CNET: A Huawei executive lost his job over the weekend after being arrested for allegedly spying on behalf of China.

The Chinese phone maker has dismissed its sales director for public-sector clients in Poland, identified as Wang Weijing, Reuters reported Saturday. Wang was arrested along with a former Polish security agent last week on espionage charges.

While Wang's alleged actions have "no relation" to Huawei, the incident has brought it into "disrepute." This prompted the company's decision to dismiss him, the publication said, citing a statement from Huawei.

Wang is the second Huawei senior executive to be detained after chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was taken into custody in Canada last month at US request, over alleged violations of Iran sanctions. Meng, who is also the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, was then released on bail.
