The Chinese tech giant Huawei fired Weijing Wang, an employee who was arrested on suspicions of espionage. Huawei isn’t taking any chances on being connected even if nothing wrong was actually committed.
The incident comes at a particularly bad time for Huawei. On top of general distrust sparked by Western governments and intelligence agencies, CFO Wangzhou Meng is facing extradition to the US over accusations she helped avoid sanctions. People are already suspicious, and the arrest doesn’t do the company any favors.
