HUAWEI DRAGS US TO COURT OVER FEDERAL BAN ON ITS PRODUCTS

Tech giant Huawei has opened a legal front in its counter-offensive against US warnings that it could aid Chinese intelligence services, filing suit to overturn a US law that bars federal agencies from buying its products.

Huawei said the case was filed in a US District Court in Plano, Texas, challenging what it called unconstitutional 2019 defense bill that stopped government agencies from buying its equipment, services, or working with third parties that are Huawei customers.

The move may send a global signal that Huawei is willing to use all means, including national courts, to prevent exclusion from a race to the 5G market — the future of high-speed telecommunications.

Huawei’s rotating chairman Guo Ping said. 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

The US government is sparing no effort to smear the company he said at a news conference at Huawei’s corporate headquarters in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen.

Guo also said the US government has hacked their servers and stolen their emails and source code without providing details.
