The U.S. Department of Justice is adding new charges to its criminal case against Chinese technology giant Huawei.
In a statement issued on Thursday afternoon, the Justice Department said it is adding a racketeering charge to the series of counts filed against Huawei last year.
It is also now facing further allegations of plotting to steal trade secrets.
The new details came in the form of a superseding indictment filed in a New York federal court.
Investigators allege that Huawei, four subsidiaries and Meng were involved in a “decades-long effort” in both the U.S. and China to “misappropriate intellectual property, including from six U.S. technology companies, in an effort to grow and operate Huawei’s business.”
“The misappropriated intellectual property included trade secret information and copyrighted works, such as source code and user manuals for internet routers, antenna technology and robot testing technology,” a press release issued on the expanded indictment reads.
“Huawei, Huawei USA and [alleged subsidiary] Futurewei agreed to reinvest the proceeds of this alleged racketeering activity in Huawei’s worldwide business, including in the United States.”
The charges come as tensions between Canada and China remain at unprecedented levels.
Canada arrested Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in December 2018 on a U.S. extradition request.
Department of Justice officials announced the following month they were charging Meng and her company with 23 counts ranging from bank fraud to money laundering and obstruction of justice.
