Huawei sued the U.S. government for unconstitutionality of the sales Restriction Act

[Shenzhen, China, March 7, 2019] today, Huawei announced that it had filed a lawsuit against the constitutionality of article 889 of the U.S. defense authorization act for fiscal year 2019 in the U.S. federal court, requesting the court to determine that the sales restriction against Huawei was unconstitutional, and that the implementation of the restriction with high added value and high-tech content was permanently prohibited

the U.S. Congress passed legislation to punish Huawei, and never showed evidence in support of these restrictions. Therefore, Huawei had to decide to respond through legal action. Guo Ping, chairman in office of Huawei, said that the restriction clause violated the U.S. Constitution, prevented Huawei from participating in fair competition, and ultimately hurt American consumers. We hope, for example, that the court can make a correct decision beneficial to American consumers

Huawei filed a lawsuit in the Federal District Court in Plano, Texas. According to the indictment, article 889 prohibits all U.S. government agencies from purchasing equipment and services from Huawei without any administrative or judicial procedures, and also prohibits U.S. government agencies from signing contracts with Huawei's customers or providing them with subsidies and loans, which violates the provisions of the deprivation of Public Rights Act and due process of law in the U.S. Constitution; At the same time, Congress not only legislates, but also tries to enforce the law and decide whether there are illegal acts, which violates the principle of separation of powers stipulated in the U.S. Constitution

song Liuping, Huawei's chief foreign affairs officer, said: Article 889 is based on many erroneous, unproven and unproven claims. The assumptions in the bill are inconsistent with the facts. Huawei is not owned or controlled by the Chinese government. In addition, Huawei has a good security record and mechanism. So far, the United States has not provided any evidence about security issues

in terms of network security, Huawei is the most open, transparent and vetted company in the world, which we are proud of. John Suffolk, Huawei's global network security and privacy officer, said that Huawei has integrated the security mechanism into product development and deployment. This mechanism has set a high standard, which few companies can achieve

Huawei believes that the restrictive clauses not only hinder Huawei from providing more advanced 5g technology to American consumers, which will lag behind the pace of 5g business and network performance in the United States, but also force network users in remote areas to choose between high-quality and affordable products and federal government funding, making network upgrading more difficult and widening the digital divide. In addition, the restrictions on Huawei have also led to a lack of competition in the U.S. market, allowing consumers to pay the bill. According to the industry prediction, if Huawei is allowed to enter the market competition, the wireless network infrastructure cost of the whole industry can be reduced by 15% to 40%. Such temperature errors cannot be compensated by the bridge, thus saving operators in North America at least $20billion in four years

Guo Ping pointed out that only by repealing this law can Huawei have the opportunity to provide advanced technology to American customers and build the most advanced 5g network. Huawei is also willing to take measures to eliminate the security concerns of the US government. The lifting of the Restriction Act allows the US government to work with Huawei to solve the real network security problems
