(Bloomberg) -- Huawei Technologies Co. said it fired Wang Weijing, an employee arrested in Poland this week on suspicion of spying for the Chinese government, saying he disgraced the company.

“His alleged actions have no relation to the company,” Huawei said Saturday in an emailed statement. “The incident in question has brought Huawei into disrepute.”

The Huawei employee in Poland was described as a Chinese citizen responsible for sales to public sector clients, television news channel TVPInfo said on Friday.
