Huawei has announced plans to sue the U.S. government in the latest battle between the Chinese technology giant and lawmakers.
Chinese tech giant Huawei is suing the us government over a law that bans federal agencies from buying and using its products.
Vodafone said any move by Britain to bar equipment made by China's Huawei from all parts of new 5G networks would cost it hundreds of millions of pounds and "very significantly" slow down the deployment of the new technology.
"The U.S. government has long branded Huawei as a threat, [but] it has hacked our service and stolen our emails and source code", Mr. Guo explained during a press conference.
Long before Trump initiated a trade war with China, Huawei's activities were under scrutiny by US authorities, according to interviews with 10 people familiar with the Huawei probes and documents related to the investigations seen by Reuters.
The case could put more pressure on the US government to disclose more evidence to support its claims about the security threat the company poses, according to some legal analysts. "We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort", Huawei chairman Guo Ping (郭平) said.
Despite this, the U.S. Government has never provided any evidence supporting their accusations that Huawei poses a cyber security threat. "We look forward to the court's verdict, and trust that it will benefit both Huawei and the American people".
Ignoring Washington's earnest "concerns" that, through Huawei systems, the Chinese government is planning to spy on the entire world, German authorities produced a list of telecom security requirements on Wednesday.
Several legal experts pointed to a November 2018 decision by a federal appeals court rejecting a similar bill of attainder claim by Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, whose anti-virus software was banned from US government networks by legislation in 2017.
According to the complaint, Huawei views Section 889 as a roadblock to it gaining more market share in the USA telecoms market.
The lawsuit also alleges that Huawei has been denied due process and that Congress, by stripping Huawei of commercial opportunities, has violated the "separation of powers" portion of the constitution by doing the work of the courts.
Huawei, however, is keen to portray itself as a private company owned by its employees, with no ties to the Chinese government beyond those of a law-abiding taxpayer.

"We want to have open competition".
In November 2018, a federal appeals court rejected a similar lawsuit filed by Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, which was challenging a ban on the use of its software in US government networks.
"Huawei are subject to a lot of scrutiny which we think is great", Ms Lamprell said.
The group's United Kingdom chief technology officer Scott Petty said on Thursday that Huawei radio equipment was used in almost a third of the company's 18,000 United Kingdom base stations - a part of the network it gauged to be very low risk.
The company has about 40 percent of the global market for network gear but its USA sales evaporated after a congressional panel in 2012 cited the company and a Chinese competitor, ZTE Corp., as security risks and told phone carriers to avoid dealing with them.
China's government arrested two Canadians, a former diplomat and a businessman, on December 10 in what was widely seen as an attempt to pressure Canada to release the executive, Meng Wanzhou. Shifting tone, Ren in mid-February said Meng's arrest was politically motivated and "not acceptable". At the same time, Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhouis facing extradition to the United States from Canada over violations of US sanctions on Iran.
Meng, who was arrested in Canada late past year, sued the country last week when Ottawa moved to extradite her to the United States.
The British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Heather J. Holmes set Meng's next court date for May 8. Two affiliates also have been charged with stealing trade secrets from telecommunications group T-Mobile.
Relations between Canada and China have deteriorated sharply since Meng's arrest.
Two Canadians have been detained in China in suspected retaliation over her arrest.
