Huawei to sue US government over ban
Huawei has filed charges to overturn the US government ban on its telecoms equipment
Huawei has filed a lawsuit to attempt to overturn the US government's ban on its telecoms equipment.
The Chinese company has filed charges in US Federal Court to overturn parts of the National Defense Authorization Act, which specifically bans US government agencies from using Huawei equipment.
The charges have been filed in Texas, and say that the US ban is ‘unconstitutional'.
The Act was passed by President Donald Trump in August, mainly on the grounds that the US government says Huawei is too close to the Chinese government. Huawei continues to state that this is not the case.
Huawei Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said that the ban is unconstitutional and will harm US consumers.
