On Friday, the Polish authorities arrested Wang Weijing and a former Polish security officer for spying on charges, a move that could fuel Western security concerns about the telecommunications equipment manufacturer.
Huawei stated in a statement that the alleged actions of its employees "have no relationship with the company". The company added that the decision was made because the accident has discredited society.
Huawei, the world's largest telecommunications equipment maker, faces intense scrutiny in the West over its relations with the Chinese government and US allegations that its equipment could be used by Beijing for espionage.
