Huawei to Challenge US defense bill, as sanction fight steams up

Adding further strains on to an exasperated sanction fight, China’s telecommunication giant, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. had filed a lawsuit, arguing for a bid to declare US defense law unconstitutional, as the largest telco gear maker in the world, Huawei had been spurring up a battle against Washington sanction, which had a perilous potentiality to throw the telecom giant out of the global markets.

The world’s No. 2 smartphone vendor, Huawei, behind South Korea’s Samsung electronics, had filed the ramped up its legal motion against the US government later on Tuesday (May 28th) as beforementioned in the US district court of Eastern Texas, asking the judge to declare a 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) unconstitutional.

Nonetheless, Huawei had set a legal motion in place against NDAA last March. In point of fact, the NDAA bill was passed in last Summer by the US Congress, as a Trump Administration move to ban federal agencies alongside their contractors who had been using Huawei equipment, over allegations that the China’s telco gear maker might have bene used for espionage purpose on behalf of Beijing.

Meanwhile, referring Huawei as an instrument for the Chinese government, US secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said in a Fox Business Network interview aired on Wednesday (May 29th), “Huawei is an instrument of the Chinese government. They’re deeply connected. It’s something that’s hard for Americans to understand”.
