Poland has arrested a Huawei Technologies Co employee and a former Polish security agent and accused them of spying for China, public television news channel TVPInfo said on Friday (Jan 11).

The arrests are the latest setback for the Chinese technology company which is embroiled in a dispute with the US over a ban on their devices, as well as a diplomatic row with Canada over the arrest of their chief financial officer.

But the criticism has led several Western countries and companies to look into whether they should allow Huawei's equipment to be used in their telecoms networks, straining relations with Beijing.

Two Huawei employees have been arrested in Poland for allegedly spying on the Chinese government's behalf.

"ABW (Internal Security Agency) officials conducted actions, as a result of which, we handed over belongings of one of our employees", Orange Polska said in a statement.

"The Chinese national is a businessman working in a major electronics company. the Pole is a person known in circles associated with cyber business", Maciej Wasik, the deputy head of Poland's special services, told state news agency PAP.

The pair are set to remain in custody for at least three months and apparently face up to ten years in prison. "We have no comment for the time being", Huawei said in a statement.

"We have no comment for the time being".

Ties between the U.S. and China have become increasingly strained since Canadian authorities arrested a Huawei executive, Meng Wanzhou, in December at the request of U.S. authorities.

But unlike Meng, who was detained for possible extradition to the U.S., Wang is suspected of conducting espionage against Poland.

The allegations were that Huawei was using its kit to spy on other governments - claims the firm has strenuously and repeatedly denied.

A Huawei representative said the company was looking into the matter.

Huawei has been blocked in the USA since 2012 after the House Intelligence Committee report found that using the company's technology could pose a security risk.
