MANAMA: Huawei has said the new US Department of Justice charges against it are without merit and based largely on recycled civil disputes from last 20 years.
In a media statement, the company said: “This new indictment is part of the Justice Department’s attempt to irrevocably damage Huawei’s reputation and its business for reasons related to competition rather than law enforcement. These new charges are without merit and are based largely on recycled civil disputes from last 20 years that have been previously settled, litigated and in some cases, rejected by federal judges and juries.”
The response came after the US Department of Justice filed new charges against Huawei, looking to ratchet up pressure on the Chinese firm.
Huawei said the US government will not prevail on its charges, which we will prove to be both unfounded and unfair.
