Those included the Interior Ministry, the Office of Electronic Communications, a regulatory body that oversees cyber and other telecommunications issues, and the International Security Agency, Poland's counterespionage agency.

Both men are said to have denied any wrongdoing, but many western countries are beginning to think again about using Huawei's telecoms equipment because of security concerns.
