The lawsuit is the latest salvo in a battle between the U.S. government and Huawei. Washington says that China’s telecoms gear could be used by Beijing to spy on you. Huawei denies that it is in fact the case.
In its lawsuit, Huawei said that it will be sent to the telecommunications equipment from China, including a computer, server, or Ethernet switch, and a testing lab in the usa. After the test has been carried out, the equipment was shipped back to China. Do not have to apply for a license, because there is no need for the lawsuit claims.
However, the equipment was seized in Alaska by the U.S. government, and no decision has been made on the question of whether a license is required to ship it, the filing said.
“The equipment is the best in HT, united states of america, from the knowledge, it is still a bureaucratic limbo in an Alaskan warehouse,” Huawei said in its lawsuit.
The Commerce Department will not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Huawei claims that the equipment does not require a license because it is not falling into a controlled category, and because it was made outside of the United States of america, and it was back to the same country from which it came.
Huawei asked for the information to be released to the uk, or the Commerce Department determined that it had been sent illegally.
