China voices ‘grave concerns’ over Poland’s arrest of Huawei sales director on spying charges

Poland’s counter-intelligence service has arrested a Chinese sales director of tech giant Huawei and a Polish former senior intelligence agent in Warsaw on suspicion of spying, according to media reports in the central European country. On Friday, China’s foreign ministry expressed grave concerns over the incident and urged Poland to protect the lawful rights of the Chinese detainee.

A spokesman for China’s embassy in Warsaw told Chinese state media that Beijing “attached great importance” to the case and was following it up with the Polish foreign ministry. Polish public broadcaster TVP identified the Huawei employee as the Chinese company’s sales director in Poland, “Weijing W”, also known as Stanislaw Wang.
