An official says Poland's Internal Security Agency has arrested a Chinese businessman and a Pole on suspicion of espionage.

They were detained by Poland's Internal Security Agency, TVP Info reported.

A LinkedIn profile for a man named Stanislaw Wang appears to match details of the man described by Polish television.

Wang reportedly worked at a Chinese consulate in Gdansk from 2006 to 2011, and he's been at Huawei since then.

The two men were arrested on Tuesday. The homes of both men were also searched, according to TVP, the state broadcaster. The Chinese ministry of foreign affairs said it was "greatly concerned" and that it expects Poland to "justly" manage the case.

The resume said he received a bachelor's degree in 2004 from the Beijing University of Foreign Studies.

A high ranking Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou was also arrested by Canadian authorities in December 2018, at the request of the United States authorities. The arrest is a fresh sign that a US dispute with China over its ban on the company is spilling over to Europe, Huawei's biggest foreign market.

Her arrest has led to a major diplomatic incident, and two Canadians - former diplomat Michael Kovrig and businessman Michael Spavor - have since been taken into custody in China on charges related to "national security".

American and other Western security experts, including three former heads of Canadian spy agencies, have raised concerns that Huawei could be asked by Beijing to incorporate backdoors into their equipment for spying or sabotage objective.
