She was previously charged together with Huawei and two Huawei affiliates - Huawei USA and Skycom - with financial fraud, money laundering, conspiracy to defraud the US, obstruction of justice, and sanctions violations in a 13-count indictment unsealed in January 2019.

The superseding indictment was filed in the federal court in Brooklyn, New York.

Huawei, one of the largest tech firms and a major telecom equipment maker, has been blacklisted by Washington amid concerns over its ties to the Chinese government and intelligence services.

The Justice Department says the actions were part of the company's "decades-long" practice of "misappropriating" sophisticated United States technologies through "fraud and deception".
