Swedish Court Strikes Dashes Huawei’s Hopes, Upholds Ban

  • A Swedish court has dismissed Huawei’s appeal of a ban preventing it from participating in the country’s 5G network.

    Huawei has been under pressure around the globe, as a result of its perceived ties to the Chinese government and intelligence community. The US, in particular, has been vocal in accusing the company of being a security risk. A number of countries have banned Huawei from participation in their 5G networks, including Sweden.

    Huawei appealed the ban, but a Swedish court has struck down the appeal, according to U.S. News & World Report, despite Huawei reportedly being willing to meet any demand the Swedish government might have.

    “A ruling by the Administrative Court of Appeal in a case relating to the law on electronic communication is final and therefore cannot be appealed,” the Supreme Administrative Court said. “The appeal should thus be dismissed.”

    This is just the latest in a string of defeats for the Chinese company that has seen it cut off from its primary chipmakers and forced to sell its smartphone business.
