Dutch intelligence investigating alleged espionage activity by Huawei

Europaweg, May 16 (UNI) General Intelligence and Security Service of the Netherlands is investigating the possibility that Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei is involved in espionage activity for the Chinese government by leaving a possibility for unauthorized access to customer data of a large Dutch telecommunications company, media reported on Thursday.
According to Volkskrant newspaper, the security services are checking whether Huawei could intentionally leave a "back door" open to information about customers one of the three big telecom companies in the country.
The AIVD, as well as Vodafone/Ziggo and KPN telecommunications companies have refused to comment on the investigation, while T-Mobile/Tele2 said it knew nothing about that.
Huawei has been accused by several countries of being sponsored by the Chinese state and spying on its behalf through its devices. Last year, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the United States banned the company from participating in government contracts due to security concerns. Huawei has vehemently denied the accusations.
