US conducted secret surveillance of Huawei, say prosecutors
Updated : April 04, 2019 11:04 PM IST
Assistant US Attorney Alex Solomon said at a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn the evidence, obtained under the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), would require classified handling. Information gathered under FISA is generally used in espionage cases.
The government notified Huawei in a court filing on Thursday of its intent to use the information, saying it was "obtained or derived from electronic surveillance and physical search," but gave no details.
The United States has been pressuring other countries to drop Huawei from their cellular networks, worried its equipment could be used by Beijing for spying. The company says the concerns are unfounded.
