Huawei sues the US for considering it a national threat and demands the lifting of the blockade

The Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei presented a lawsuit in a federal courtl against the American government to have the designation of threat against national security withdrawn and be able to sell billions in equipment, included in 5G technology.

The demand was filed Monday in an appeals court in New Orleans and requests that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC, in English) withdraw the declaration of December 11 against Huawei by consider it capricious and arbitrary and that it exceeds the powers of that regulator.

The Chinese multinational ensures that the FCC does not presented “substantial evidence” to include her on the blacklist for national security reasons and says she was not allowed to defend herself before the new order was issued.

Huawei thus broadens its challenges against the numerous measures taken by the Administration of the former president Donald Trump against the Chinese multinational for bar you from accessing U.S. markets and technology for fear your presence and in some cases like the 5G hegemony they put national security at risk.

The multinational already has a dispute with the FCC over its 2019 decision not to allow purchases for the development of 5G technology to be financed with tax subsidies. Huawei He argued that he has no ties with the Chinese government that could compromise the security of communication networks.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the FCC assured that Huawei’s designation as a national security threat is based on a “substantive body of evidence developed by the FCC and numerous United States national security agencies. We will continue to defend that decision. “

The lawsuit was filed shortly after the founder of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei told reporters in China that he hopes the Joe Biden government will be more open to policies “that are in the interest of American companies.”

“We hope we can buy a lot of American components, parts and machinery, so that American companies can also grow with the Chinese economy,” Ren said.

At her Senate confirmation hearing, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo did not clarify whether the Commerce Department will keep Huawei on its blacklist, something that is pending review.

Huawei’s cell phone business has been most affected by bans on selling and purchasing components in United States. EFE
