Il Mistero del Silenzio di HUAWEI

Meng Wanzhou, figlia del fondatore di Huawei, viene arrestata il 1° Dicembre a Vancouver, Canada, su richiesta degli Stati Uniti, con l'accusa di aver violato le sanzioni commerciali nei confronti dell'Iran. La notizia del suo arresto viene diffusa il 6 dicembre. Per cinque giorni una delle personalità più potenti nell'industria delle telecomunicazioni scompare dai radar dei mass media e dei leader politici mondiali.

Donald Trump e Xi Jinping, nelle stesse ore in cui la CFO di Huawei veniva trasferita in carcere, si incontravano e si mostravano sorridenti alla stampa internazionale dal palcoscenico del G20 per annunciare la "tregua" di 90 giorni nella strana guerra commerciale tra USA e Cina.  

Possibile che i due non sapessero nulla dell'arresto di Meng Wanzhou ? oppure The Donald era stato informato ma nascondeva la notizia al suo interlocutore per non guastarsi la festa (e soprattutto per non disturbare i mercati finanziari sui quali aveva fatto investire miliardi di dollari per sfruttare l'insider trading della "tregua").

Possibile che nessuno della Huawei Technologies Co. non abbia cercato di mettersi in contatto con la sua CFO per cinque lunghi giorni ?

The Globe and Mail

( ASIA CORRESPONDENT BEIJING) :

 

... And Ms. Meng, who is 46, has become an important Chinese voice, both on the global stage – appearing on panels next to figures such as Ben Bernanke, the former chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve – and in giving a positive face to a company whose immense growth has been accompanied by suspicion about the security of its technology.

...

In China, commentators called her a scapegoat of a U.S. bid to block the spread of Huawei’s 5G telecommunications technology.

“He who has a mind to beat his dog will easily find his stick,” Yu Li a former Peking University researcher and popular online commentator wrote Thursday morning.

“The fact that Huawei makes Chinese people feel proud of themselves must have made someone unhappy.”

A distanza di molte ore, sulla stampa ufficiale cinese la notizia dell'arresto di Meng non viene citata neppure in un trafiletto. Silenzio assoluto, anche sulle vibrate proteste che l'ambasciatore cinese in Canada ha ufficialmente rivolto alle autorità locali.

 

Ma sulla stampa meno imbrigliata la notizia viene riportata con enfasi (e questo fa supporre che le autorità cinesi siano state informate sulle indagini in corso nei confronti Huawei):

da SCMP :

Arrested Huawei CFO Sabrina Meng Wanzhou told staff ‘one may accept the risk of temporary non-compliance’ in some cases

 

 

Molti ora si aspettano una risposta-rappresaglia cinese:

da AXIOS :

After Huawei arrest, experts say China could retaliate

 

 

 Global Times, uno degli organi di stampa del Partito Comunista Cinese, rompe il silenzio con un editoriale avvelenato:

 

With executive’s arrest, US wants to stifle Huawei

 

Despite incomplete information about the incident, the US move obviously goes against the consensus reached between the heads of state of China and the US in Argentina. The incident shows that China faces a complicated competition with the US. Beijing needs determination and wisdom to safeguard its own interests.

With the arrest, the US is sending signals to the international community that it is targeting Huawei. It is clear that Washington is maliciously finding fault with Huawei and trying to put the company in jeopardy with US laws. Washington is attempting to damage Huawei's international reputation and taking aim at the tech giant's global market in the name of law.

We call on the Chinese government and society to offer moral support to Huawei and Chinese diplomats to offer timely assistance to Meng. We also support Huawei in its legal battle with the US to prove its innocence and thwart some Americans' plot to throw the company off track.

Huawei has been growing steadily by strictly following laws. It draws management experience from all transnational companies and maintains the highest standards in this regard. It is impossible that Huawei would want to deliberately violate US regulations. It will be difficult for the US to convict the Huawei executive.

Huawei should try to defeat the accusers under the US legal framework. If the US prosecutes Huawei with an unwarranted charge, the case will become complicated but Huawei will still have plenty of room for maneuver.
