In a coordinated arrest, police also detained a Polish citizen named Piotr D. - a former Internal Security Agency official who now works for the telecom Orange Polska, according to Poland'sTVP Info, which first reported the story.
"We will be in touch with Polish authorities for further information", said spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic.
It has also become involved in the US-China trade dispute after the arrest last month of chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou. In New Zealand, the Government Communications Security Bureau turned down Spark's bid to use Huawei equipment on the new 5G network in November. "The homes of both men, also in Warsaw, were also searched, according to [Internal Security Agency] spokesman Stanislaw Zaryn".

China's foreign ministry reportedly said it was "greatly concerned" by the arrest, while Huawei said it was aware of the situation.

Huawei is one of the "tech" champions in China, and one of the more popular Chinese companies overseas.
Wara said that Norway shares "the same concerns as the United States and Britain" with regards to espionage projects contracted on "private and state actors in Norway".
"As we start 2019, it is time for a change", Bradley said in the post. Past year the company said it had signed memorandums of understanding for 5G equipment with 45 operators in Asia, Europe and North America.
