But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Poland: Huawei Employee Arrested over Spying Charge

HeadlineJan 14, 2019

In Poland, authorities arrested two men Friday on suspicion of espionage, including a sales director for Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei. Huawei, which is the world’s second largest maker of smartphones, announced Saturday that it fired Wang Weijing—who also previously worked for the Chinese Consulate in Poland—saying he brought the company “into disrepute.” Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Huawei and the daughter of the company’s founder, is currently out on bail in Canada after being arrested last month. She is facing possible extradition to the United States over suspected violations of sanctions against Iran.
