There comes the news of Huawei threatening to sue the U.S government over legislation, the law that prevents agencies from buying the products of Huawei and now this has come good on these threats. This complaint was filed in the U.S court in Texas and Huawei claims that the National Defense Authorization Act or some parts of it are unconstitutional. This act limits the government agency under section 889 which is entitled as “Prohibition on certain telecommunications and video surveillance services,” that prevents agencies from purchasing products from both ZTE and Huawei.
According to CNBC report, it is claimed by Huawei that it is a bill of attainder and that clearly means that Huawei has decided that this act has decided that a person(s) are guilty and punish them without the requirement for due process and that is making all the process unconstitutional, according to Huawei.
As per the statement of Reuters, Gu Ping who is the rotating chairman of Huawei said: “the U.S. Congress has repeatedly failed to produce any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products.”
“This ban not only is unlawful but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming U.S. consumers,” he said. “We look forward to the court’s verdict.”
A prosecutor said without any proof that this situation arises because Huawei conducted business in Iran and it should not be doing so through another company named Skycom due to sanctions. There are some other claims as well that are related to Huawei’s trade secret theft that specifically surrounds T-Mobile’s testing robot which is also known as Tappy. Huawei on the other side believes that there is nothing that it has done wrong.
This thing clearly rumbles for some time and we see either side to back down as well.
