Chinese citizens in Sweden could, according to Chinese law, be forced to hand over sensitive information if the regime demands so. This is the assessment of several security services and an expert SvD has spoken to. Huawei in Sweden has hit back however, saying the law has been interpreted incorrectly.
Huawei’s CEO in Sweden, Kenneth Fredriksen, says, “I do not really want to comment on what the Swedish Security Service (SÄPO) is saying, but I can say that we, as a company, follow local rules and laws in Sweden 100 per cent. No failings in our products have ever been documented and it is not going to happen.” He also questions why SÄPO makes a different interpretation to the world’s largest law firm.
