Nick Ferrari grilled this senior Huawei director over why his Chinese company is considered a “high-risk vendor”.
Ministers have insisted Huawei’s involvement in the UK’s 5G network will not affect Britain’s security partnerships.
Boris Johnson gave the green light for the Chinese firm’s technology to be used in non-core infrastructure – but no “sensitive parts” of the system.
That’s despite severe concerns by a number of MPs, as well as the US, who have warned against involving Huawei with the project. One reason is the Chinese law compelling companies to give the government certain information.
Ed Brewster, the Communications Director of the company, insisted that the law had been mischaracterised.
