International relations between the United States and China are at their lowest for now. They are more news since the US government decided to sue Huawei, the Chinese telephony giant. It was precisely on the edge of these events that another scandal widened the rift between the two powers. In fact, Washington accuses two intelligence agents in the Middle Kingdom’s pay of obstructing the ongoing investigation. This is what emerged from the press conference between the executives of the FBI and the Department of Justice.

The US suspects Chinese spy agents

Two people accused of spying for China in Huawei case

This is nothing new, accusations of espionage between Washington and Beijing are legion. Once again, the US government is pointing fingers at the Chinese authorities for their interference in the country’s political affairs. This time again, two men are behind obstruction of American justice in the case between the government and the company Huawei. it is Guochun He and of Zhen Wang. The two spies believed they were cooperating with an informant in the US government to steal sensitive information, as well as intellectual property secrets.

In other words, it was their desire to remove confidential information as part of the Huawei investigations. They would too offered $61,000 in bitcoin to know the identity of the witnesses, the new charges kept and even the trial evidence. Yesterday the US Department of Justice made this information public on its official website. Before them, eleven other Chinese nationals have also been charged with various offenses, including harassment of people on American soil. Christopher WrayFBI director, noted with sarcasm that these alleged spies: “Try to silence anyone who defends themselves against their theft – businesses, politicians, individuals – just as they try to silence anyone who defends themselves against their other attacks”.

It should be noted that Huawei’s name does not appear in any case in the indictment documents forwarded by the courts. However, in the phishing plan prepared by Washington it was suggested that Huawei executives who were present on American soil could be arrested. That is where this whole scheme of harassment and interference would have started.


So far, the Huawei company has not left any comments. A strange posture, because his name is unofficially in this spy case. In 2020, for example, when it was in the crisis of American justice, the telephone company raised its tone, saying: “Huawei’s attack will not help the United States stay ahead of the competition.”
