Miles Kwok about Huawei and the truth behind the arrest of its Chief Financial Officer

Huawei is one of the most respectable companies in China, and Mr. Ren Zhengfei is one of my most respectable entrepreneurs in China. There is no hatred between us and I wish them well.

For years, intelligence from the US, Europe and Japan has asked me about Huawei. Most of my comments have been positive. Today, it’s the first time I want to take the question seriously.

Let me name some companies in China: Norinco, China Ordnance Equipment Group, Poly Group, Pingan Group, Huawei Group, Alibaba, Tencent Wechat, Zhenhua Oil, and ZTE – these 9 companies are China’s key players with its “Go-out Initiative”. These 9 companies are all under the control of Jiang Zemin’s family.

There is one exception of companies in the “Go-out Initiative” – Nuctech at Qinghua University by Hu Haifeng, son of former President Hu Jintao, the biggest company in China producing monitoring equipment.

None of these ten companies has any connection with Xi Jinping. These ten companies are 100% China’s military companies. No westerners are right to call them commercial businesses or just companies with PLA background.

The leaders of all these companies have three identities: first in the military, each has their own PLA numbers; second, these people are listed as supported and protected by China’s finance authorities; third, they have the diplomatic privilege with China’s Foreign Ministry.

That’s why we see China’s Foreign Ministry being the first to speak out when Meng Wanzhou was arrested. No other businessmen in China have this privilege.

We now go onto another topic. You may know that China is in leading position in the study of physics. China’s man-made sun is one of its greatest achievements, in addition to the Big Data Center in Guizhou, and several other physics centers, quantum computer in particular.

The key physicists are Gu Dongmei and her husband Wang Enge of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, later President of Peking University, both with background from Stanford and MIT. Zhang Shoucheng, the scientist who was claimed to have committed suicide in the US, was his student. One of the main reasons why US’s study in quantum science lacks behind China is due to the engagement of Wang Enge and his team in US and UK physics study for decades.

In China, there are the Thousand Talents Plan in 2008 and the Hundred Talents Plan in 1995. Wang Enge and Zhang Shoucheng are the core scientists in these plans.

Successfully sent overseas as espionage by CCP, Wang Enge has three identities: representative of Chinese scholars, a technical representative, and a BGY representative in US governments and institutions.

Back to China, Wang Enge is a key player in China’s Moon Mission, satellite plan, chip-making and quantum computing where Jiang Miankang, son of Jiang Zemin, was the number one boss. Zhang Shoucheng is their subordinate.

Zhang was a fellow of the American Physical Society and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was elected as a member of the US National Academy of Sciences in 2015. He won the highest scientific honor in China as well. He could be a candidate for Nobel Prize.

There is no possibility that a person like Zhang Shoucheng would commit suicide. His death is similar to that of HNA chairman Wang Jian. It was also the Chinese state media who first publicized his death as suicide by depression.

I personally met Zhang Shoucheng three times.

First time in Jingxi Hotel Beijing when I was called for a security meeting regarding the 2008 Olympics. Attending the meeting are one official from the second department of State Security Ministry, a Deputy Chief of Staff from the military, a Chief of Staff, Minister and another vice Minister of the State Security Ministry. There I met four scientists, including Zhang Shoucheng.

The second time was at Diaoyutai State Guest House where I was invited to receive the highest state honor – First National Prize. Zhang Shoucheng was honored the same prize. I was shocked to see all the officials from the Party, the Central Government, the military, the state security Ministry, Public Security Ministry and other intelligence agencies were present. Liu Changle from phoenix TV was the first to be called onto the stage, then Jack Ma of Alibaba, then Ma Huateng of Tencent, then Ren Zhengfei from Huawei, then Zhang Shoucheng, totally 30 individuals. The ceremony was held in secrecy.

Xi Jinping, then Vice President, who presented the prizes, said this honor is something like an exemption from death penalty, recognized at the state level. Wang Enge and Jiang Mianheng were also there to present the prize in cash.

Quantum computing fills half of China’s ambition to lead the world. It builds the foundation for the Belt and Road Initiative, internationalization of its currency Renminbi, and expansion by setting up military bases overseas. Zhang Shoucheng has made his great contributions in all areas.

In its Thousand Talents Plan, China has recruited at least 20 thousand scientists overseas. I want to tell today that Zhang was not just one of their recruits, he was one of the creators. In 2014, Wang Enge borrowed my private jet for a flight to the US, and Zhang Shoucheng was one of the scientists he was to meet there.

The CCP has once again cheated the whole world, telling that Zhang had committed suicide. CIA and FBI won’t be fooled around by them.

Zhang was a Christian, and he also has some understanding of Buddhism. These are the sources of some of his theories in quantum computing. He had said publicly that murder and suicide are both stupid things. He was a careful man.

Zhang Shoucheng was supposed to meet Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou in Argentina on the day “he committed suicide”.

I can assure you that every cell phone made by Huawei is equipped with monitoring cells. When Meng and Zhang met, they would be discussing cooperation together.

I shall extend my respect to Mr. Ren of Huawei to build a great enterprise, but Huawei cell phones not only monitor US citizens, they also monitor Chinese citizens. Huawei has helped the CCP to do lots of evil and hurt the Chinese, including my family and colleagues.

I am awaiting charges from Huawei too in the land of the United States and I am going to submit today’s whistle blow to CIA and FBI.

Everything is just beginning!

  1. This article reads like it is a plant by the CIA to divert culpability for Zhang Chuchong’s death to the Chinese government rather than the CIA itself – certainly not what a great Chinese scientist would do. This is US propaganda.

    It is certainly not wrong to see three events all happening on the same day, when Meng was to meet Zhang in Argentina, as all having the same purpose: to hurt, delay and humiliate China and vilify Xi Jinping. The third event is the fire at a Dutch extreme infrared chip maker getting ready to ship an order to China.

    Meng, the daughter of Huawei founder arrested. A Nobel worthy scientist killed and a company prevented from delivery of China’s order – remember the killing of Iranian scientists? That is how the US wants to win economic and scientific competition now. So no wonder that they plant an article, presumably by a Chinese dissident, to accuse China of what the US is doing, including the hiring of thousands of foreign promising scientists. And notice the backdoor accusation of Huawei? It is the US who planted a backdoor in Huawei based on which dastardly deed they now discredit Huawei though that backdoor may no longer exist.

    This is the usual CIA inversion and mixup of facts and inventions to vilify China. Despicable.
