In the NY indictment, prosecutors noted that Huawei used its affiliate, Skycom Tech Co.

Meng was arrested in early December 2018 by Canadian authorities at the request of the United States over allegations that she had committed fraud in sidestepping sanctions. Ltd, a company in Iran, in violation of US laws.

Engadget has contacted Huawei for comment.

Canadian officials arrested Meng on a US warrant December 1.

Federal prosecutors have filed suit against Huawei, the largest smartphone maker in China, on allegations of stealing trade secrets from T-Mobile and violating sanctions against doing business in Iran. It arose from a multiyear investigation into potential violations by Chinese companies of US sanctions on Iran.

In total, more than two dozen charges were listed, including bank fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and violations of Iran sanctions.

It's claimed Meng, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, tried to cover up the Chinese tech giant's business operations in Iran. She has been detained in Vancouver since then. In response to a question, Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker stated that the Mueller investigation is "close to being completed". US Commerce Sercetary Wilbur Ross insists the Huawei cases are "wholly separate" from trade negotiatons. The U.S. said during its press conference it was "deeply grateful to the government of Canada" for following the rule of law.

The actor's sister Rangoli Chandel shared a boomerang of Kangana and her son where the duo is in a full celebratory mode. Earlier, the record was held by Kangana Ranaut's film Tanu Weds Manu Returns , which collected 15.85 crore on a Sunday.

"The criminal activity in this indictment goes back ten years and goes all the way to the top of the company", said Whitaker.

The US Department of Justice on Monday charged Huawei with theft of trade secrets, wire fraud and obstruction of justice. However, the U.S. government says it has emails that point to a conspiracy to steal secrets from T-Mobile and that it was indeed a company-wide effort.

Huawei is the world's biggest supplier of network gear used by phone and internet companies.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Saturday he had removed John McCallum for saying that Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou could make a strong argument against being sent to the United States.

Meng faces charges of bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit both bank fraud and wire fraud.

Huawei also maintains that it was an isolated incident that involved two employees who acted inappropriately.

The announcement came as US officials are scheduled to meet with representatives of the Chinese government this week to try broker an elusive trade agreement and end the prolonged tariff war between the two economic giants.
