A LinkedIn profile for a man named Stanislaw Wang appears to match details described by Polish television. From 2006, he worked at the Chinese consulate in Gdansk before starting work at Huawei in 2011 and taking over responsibility for the company's public relations in Poland.

According to reports, two men were taken into custody Tuesday.

Poland's counterintelligence agency seized documents from the man's office and home.

China is highly concerned over the issue, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' press office said in a faxed response to questions.

Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, who is also the daughter of the company's founder, was detained in Canada last month on a U.S. extradition bid.

Australia and New Zealand banned Huawei equipment from the planned 5G networks of carriers in the countries, and the head of British spy agency MI6 said last month the government needs to decide whether to ban the company. Huawei, the world's biggest producer of telecom equipment, in a statement on Saturday, distanced itself from the incident and terminated the employment of the executive.
