(Reuters) – US prosecutors are investigating new cases of alleged technology theft by Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday, citing people familiar with the case.
Huawei is accused of stealing intellectual property from individuals and companies over several years, and recruiting employees from its rivals, the report added.
When contacted by Reuters, a spokesman for prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York declined to comment.
The inquiries suggest that the US government is investigating aspects of Huawi's business practices that were not covered in charges by the Chinese company issued earlier this year, the WSJ report states.
In January, US Department of Justice Huawei and its finance chief Meng Wanzhou accused him of conspiring to violate US sanctions on Iran by doing business with Tehran through a subsidiary it was trying to hide. [1
