Huawei CFO’s arrest poses a threat to China’s global 5G mobile ambitions
#1
China’s push to lead the global development and roll-out of 5G mobile networks could be at risk, following the recent arrest of Huawei Technologies chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou.

Analysts on Thursday said the arrest and detention in Canada of Meng, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei and the firm’s deputy chairwoman, at the request of US authorities marked another level of pressure on the Shenzhen-based company by Washington even as the US and China agreed to a 90-day trade war truce.

“It is not yet clear whether there has been a breach committed, but for the CFO to be detained we can expect serious accusations to be levied against Huawei in the coming days,” said Paul Haswell, a partner who advises technology companies at international law firm Pinsent Masons.

Haswell said efforts by Huawei, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker, to lead global 5G network deployments may be hampered if it incurs US sanctions, which would block access to American technology suppliers and limit the number of markets where the company can sell its products........

I bought a Redmi phone via Qoo10 2 years ago just to check out how crap it was. Laughing I used it for my Singtel second hp, the one that I pay $6 every month for 100 mins talk time, unlimited SMS and 100MB data. I seldom use the line and refused to be bribe by Singtel to change the plan. Even tried to offer me $300 hp voucher but me along with the less than 100 jokers under this sibei old plan not that dumb to change plan as it is really value for money to pay only $6/mth for an emergency standby second line.

Daughter take mother surname. I guess she doesn't want anybody to know she is the founder daughter when she first started out as a low level employee in Huawei.

THE HUAWEI KIDNAPPING: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE?

There may be a lot more than meets the eye in Canada’s shock arrest, at US behest, of Huawei’s CFO and heir apparent Meng Wanzhou (link below).

Chinese sources have assembled the following facts:

• April 2017: A director of Chinese tech giant Huawei personally escorts famed Shanghai-born physicist Zhang Shoucheng from the latter’s hotel in Shenzhen. Jackson & Wood Professor of Physics at Stanford University, Zhang was in town to attend an IT summit.

• Sept. 2018: Prof. Zhang receives a European physics award, one of his many honors. His work in quantum physics is expected to revolutionize the global semiconductor industry. Yang Zhenning, the first Chinese scientist to receive the Nobel Physics Prize (1957), had predicted that Zhang would be the next one.

• Dec. 1, 2018: Prof. Zhang and Meng Wanzhou are expected to attend a dinner in Argentina, where the G20 summit is being held.

• Dec. 1, 2018: On her way there, Meng is arrested in transit by the Canadian government.

• Dec. 1, 2018: Prof. Zhang falls to his death from a building in the US, allegedly a suicide. Said to be suffering from depression, he was 55.

• Dec. 1, 2018: A nighttime fire breaks out at a factory of Holland’s ASML, the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology. EUV is crucial to the production of the next generation of semi-conductors, which US and Chinese tech firms as well as Korea’s Samsung are competing to be first to bring to market. Leading Chinese semiconductor producer SMIC is known to have ordered EUV technology worth US$120 million from ASML, for scheduled delivery early in 2019. After the fire, ASML announced that it expected delays in shipments of its products, notably early 2019.
