Brooklyn courthouse is Ground Zero for US-Chinese tech battle

January 28: The U.S. Justice Department unseals charges against Huawei, Meng and several of the companies' subsidiaries, alleging not only violation of trade sanctions but also the theft of trade secrets.

Geng said Beijing had constantly required Chinese companies to carry out their economic activities overseas in compliance with the local laws.

"For some time, the United States has used its state power to discredit and suppress a specific Chinese enterprise and attempted to interfere in the legitimate operations of enterprise".

Beijing will "firmly defend" its companies, a foreign ministry statement said. The 60 days windows allowed by the Law expires on January 30, and just in time, the Sates Department on the afternoon of Monday, January 28, 2019, did just that, while also slamming 13 counts including money laundering, obstruction of justice, and sanction violations on the Chinse giant.

Now US officials claim this was part of a systematic effort with Huawei management moving to pay bonuses to employees who stole trade secrets. Shuang also urges the U.S.to "immediately withdraw the arrest warrant against Miss Meng Wanzhou and stop making such kinds of extradition requests".

FBI Director Christopher Wray said the cases "expose Huawei's brazen and persistent actions to exploit American companies and financial institutions, and to threaten the free and fair global marketplace".

The situation was diffused by other drivers on the road, who police say worked in tandem to slow down Fitzgerald and box him in. Kamrowski also began smashing the Infiniti's windshield with the purloined water bottle in a bid to get Fitzgerald to stop.

December 11: Meng is released on bail of 10 million Canadian dollars ($7.5 million), and Trump tells Reuters that he might intervene in her case "if I think it's good for what will be certainly the largest trade deal ever made". Canada now has a month to decide whether the US's formal extradition request is strong enough, and during Tuesday's hearing, Justice William Ehrcke delayed the next hearing by a month, to 6 March. Following her arrest last month, China arrested two Canadians on national security grounds.

"Today we are announcing that we are bringing criminal charges against telecommunications giant Huawei and its associates for almost two dozen alleged crimes" acting attorney general Matthew G. Whitaker told reporters at a news briefing.

The indictment also mentions that Huawei's founder - Ren Zhengfei, a former People's Liberation Army engineer identified only as "Individual-1" in the court documents - had "falsely stated" that the company had "not dealt directly with any Iranian company" in an interview with Federal Bureau of Investigation in July 2007.

Back in December in particular we saw the high-profile arrest of Huawei's CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada on the grounds of an U.S. arrest warrant. Mnuchin said the United States security concerns raised by the Huawei case were separate from the trade issue. The U.S. hopes to extradite Meng and force her (and Huawei) to face trial.

The second set of charges against Huwaei accuses the company of trying to steal technology from USA telecoms network T-Mobile.

An indictment released by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday (Jan. 28) alleges that Chinese electronics behemoth Huawei offered incentives to any employee who could steal trade secrets.
