Huawei has all along been revoked working with the Chinese government to spy on other nations and China’s own citizens. But according to The Washington Post, it has discussed 100 PowerPoint demonstrations from the company that can show how it’s linked to China’s surveillance projects. While many of the slips were celebrated confidential, they were reportedly posted on a public-facing Huawei website until they were removed last year.
The Post has published a handful of the moves translated into English, including one pitching a technology that can help sovereignties analyze tone tapes by comparing them against a large database of recorded “voiceprints.” It’s supposed to help with matters of national certificate, and as the publication greenbacks, that wants it could be used to identify individuals involved in political disagreement, Hong Kong and Taiwan matters and discussions smothering ethnic relations.
Another slide presents a thorough prison surveillance organisation, which has apparently been implemented in prisons in Inner Mongolia and Shanxi province, as well as detention centers in the Xinjiang region. Detainees of Xinjiang’s internment camps, predominantly members of the Uyghur ethnic group, accuse their operators of forced labor, torture and detaining them without charges.
Another slide items how Huawei’s surveillance engineerings have been in use in Xinjiang since 2017 and how its facial identification technology facilitated capture “a number of criminal suspects.” Yet another substantiates a surveillance plan that can pinpoint the site of “political people of interest” using their electronic devices. It’s reportedly in use right now in Guangdong, which is China’s most populous province.
The Post admits that it can’t strengthen who the slithers were presented to or when, but many of them were created back in 2014 and were revised as recently as last year. A Huawei spokesperson told the publication, though, that the company “has no knowledge of the projects mentioned in the Washington Post report” and that it caters “cloud platform works that comply with common industry standards.”
