The drama between the US and Huawei is not letting up anytime soon. Reuters had recently uncovered leaked internal documents which suggests that the Chinese company had allegedly violated US trade sanctions on Iran.
The documents stated that the Chinese tech giant had shipped computer equipment by Hewlett-Packard Co to an Iranian telecom carrier on December 2010. Other items in the packing list include software made by other US companies such as Microsoft, Symantec and Novell.
Furthermore, the records mentioned another Chinese company, Panda International, was also involved in the trade. The company is said to have longstanding ties with Huawei, and was used as a proxy to supply Iran with US-made hardware and software.
“Due to ongoing legal proceedings, it is not appropriate for Huawei to comment at this time,” a spokesperson told Reuters. If proven to be true, these new findings could be solid evidence for the US govt’s Department of Justice in their multifaceted case against the Chinese tech giant.
