A manager at Huawei who has worked at the company since 2012 worked at the National Information Security Engineering Centre, which reportedly “collaborated for years” with Unit 61398 of the Chinese Army, a unit accused of being “at the heart of China’s alleged cyber war against Western commercial targets.” The study links another Huawei engineer, who has worked in Europe, to being a “representative” of the Ministry of State Security, China’s intelligence agency.A further CV reveals a senior Huawei engineer worked on “a database-driven surveillance system capable of accessing every citizen’s record and connecting China’s security organisations” — otherwise known as the “Great Firewall of China.”One more CV shows a Huawei telecom engineer involved in development of 5G “base stations” who says on his CV that he cannot comment on his previous employment “due to the involvement of military secrets.” Prof. Balding said “these CVs are a treasure trove.”Charles Parton, a British diplomat who spent much of his career in China, said the cases “give the lie to Huawei’s claim that there is no evidence that they help the Chinese intelligence services. This gun is smoking.”Ed Brewster of Huawei, said: “Huawei does not work on military or intelligence projects for the Chinese Government. This information is not new and is not secret, being freely available on career websites. It is not unusual that Huawei employs people from public service and government. We are proud of their backgrounds and we are open about them.” LONDON — Huawei staff admitted to having worked with Chinese intelligence agencies in a “mass trove” of employment records leaked online.Analysis of CVs of Huawei employees appear to show “far closer links” between the telecommunications company and military-backed cyber agencies than previously thought, a think tank claims.The employment files suggest that some Huawei staff have also worked as agents within China’s Ministry of State Security; worked on joint projects with the Chinese People’s Liberation Army; were educated at China’s leading military academy; and have been employed by a military unit accused of a cyber attack on U.S. corporations.Analysis of the CVs found 11 Huawei staff graduated from the PLA’s Information Engineering University, a military academy reputed to be China’s centre for “information warfare research.” Down to Business podcast: Why Huawei thinks Canada should trust its 5G gear U.S. ban is hurting Huawei more than it thought — $30 billion more Huawei controlling Canada’s 5G would be ‘crazy,’ warns Rogers vice-chairman The claims will strengthen demands for the telecom operator to be frozen out of a deal to build part of Britain’s new 5G mobile phone network. The Daily Telegraph disclosed in April that Theresa May had given the green light to Huawei to build parts of the network despite national security concerns. Huawei said it does not work on military projects for China’s regime.The CVs of up to 25,000 Huawei employees were uncovered by Christopher Balding, an associate professor at the Fulbright University Vietnam, while investigating Huawei’s ownership structure. The CVs were uploaded on Chinese recruitment platforms in the past year and began to appear online and on publicly accessible sites. Prof. Balding, in conjunction with the Henry Jackson Society, a London-based think tank, concluded that about 100 Huawei staff had connections with the Chinese military or intelligence agencies and their “backgrounds indicated experience in matters of national security.”The study claims that one Huawei project team leader refers on his CV to work on joint projects between the telecom company and the Chinese Army’s National University of Defence Technology, one of China’s leading military academies and was put on a U.S. list, banning American firms from selling it technology in 2015, under Barack Obama’s presidency.Another Huawei employee’s CV says she works both at the telecom giant as a software engineer and also at the Radar Academy of the Chinese Army. The academy, says Prof. Balding, “matches closely her work for Huawei.”(These cases) give the lie to Huawei’s claim that there is no evidence that they help the Chinese intelligence services.

first_imgMayor of Donegal Frank McBrearty has said the Garda Ombudsman must be made completely independent if it is to work.  In a wide-ranging attack on Garda misconduct, the Labour politician also points the finger at his own party and coalition partner Fine Gael for remaining silent on the issue.He also challenges the Minister for Justice to publish the files sent to the DPP by all Garda investigations into the death of Donegal cattle-dealer Richard Barron. Cllr McBrearty told Donegal Daily that it has been proven that Gardai cannot investigate Gardai.“I have listened over the last number of weeks to the many allegations being made against the Gardai. It is of no shock to me these allegations that have been leveled at the force and now the conduct of Minister Alan Shatter TD which is similar to previous Justice Ministers. The comments being made by politicians about the Morris tribunal recommendations still not being implemented is deafening to say the least and they are somewhat annoying when you have the knowledge I have about Garda wrong doing.“We have heard about the two Garda whistleblowers and how they are being treated. The reason they are being treated so badly is because the whistle blower charter is designed not to work and “even the dogs on the street” know this.”The Raphoe-based politician revealed that both whistle-blowers came to see him in February at his home. He spent three hours listening to their concerns and says it is disturbing that the division that one of them has served in had an internal Garda investigation recently which he claims has been ignored by the media over the last number of weeks.“I know how whistle blowers are treated as I have seen first-hand how members of the Gardai that helped my family and I were treated by the state.“The Minister is careful how he chooses to react to these allegations in public. What has changed since the Morris tribunal – nothing. Why, well we need to go back to the Morris tribunal and look at the whole issue of Gardai investigating Gardai. When the Gardai in Donegal were exposed by myself and my family, the then Minister for Justice John O’Donoghue TD brought the allegations to the then Garda Commissioner Pat Byrne who then appointed Assistant Commissioner Kevin Carty to investigate the allegations that where coming out of the division.“At the same time the Garda complaints board was conducting investigations into various complaints and eventually the then Minister appointed Shane Murphy SC to do a review which resulted in the setting up of the Morris tribunal.“This would not have happened if my family and I had not fought to clear our own names. What lessons have we learned – none. The Gardai are still conducting internal investigations into their own conduct. “The Minister for Justice is still supporting Senior Garda positions on allegations against the force. The Garda Ombudsman is still using members of the Gardai to investigate Gardai which is not independent,” he said.Mayor McBrearty said the Minister should now publish the reports and evidence that were held in camera at the Morris Tribunal and he should also publish the full internal Garda investigation conducted by Assistant Commissioner Kevin Carty to show the public the extent of reform that is needed within the force and it will show the similarities to the Kieran Boylan case.“The Ombudsman should be funded properly to the extent that it can be totally independent of the Gardai. To show the level of corruption within the force the Minister should publish the files sent to the DPP by all the Garda investigations into the death of Mr Richard Barron.“This will show the public the extent the Gardai will go to when they cover up for their own. “The Ian Bailey case is just one example of how the Gardai operate when they come under the microscope and there are many examples dating right back to the Kerry babies case.“The work of Kathleen O’Toole and the Garda inspectorate during her period in the job should be fully published, which in my opinion would show the extent of resistance within the ranks of Senior Gardai to reform the force.”He also attacks his own political colleagues on the issue of Garda misconduct and their failure to act on it.“I am very disappointed at the silence of my own party and Fine Gael on this issue as they are well aware of the problems that exist in our Garda force and the true reform that is needed.“Both parties know the extent that the Gardai went to in trying to discredit Minister Brendan Howlin TD and Jim Higgins MEP, which was not properly investigated by the Morris tribunal or the internal Garda Investigation which was conducted by former Garda Commissioner Fachtna Murphy then an A/Commissioner.“Last night we saw on RTE news a murder case in Co Cavan with serious question marks and the division that had an internal investigation recently. Can I remind the public of the many allegations made against me by Senior Gardai to the Minister for Justice John O’Donoghue and where Deputy Wallace now finds himself in a similar position, but there is a big difference – I was accused of Murder and he is accused of using his mobile phone.“The Minister should start the reform needed, by starting with the Department of Justice and if he does not then we will continue to see issues like the ones raised over the last few weeks surface into the future.“Finally we are a small country with a population the same as Manchester and we have a police force that has not been reformed since the foundation of the state and the serious allegations of corruption continue to surface against a force that is accountable to no one. We were promised reform after the Morris Tribunal, where is it Minister?”MAYOR MCBREARTY ATTACKS JUSTICE MINISTER – GARDAI CANNOT INVESTIGATE GARDAI was last modified: May 22nd, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Garda misconductMayor Frank McBreartylast_img
