Cambridge University is blamed for having allowed Huawei to infiltrate its Cambridge Centre for Chinese Management

According to the latest information, the china-based tech giant Huawei has been accused of infiltrating” a Cambridge University research centre. Sources indicate that most of the universities academics were found to have ties with the Chinese company.

The report further reads that three out of four of the directors at the Cambridge Centre for Chinese Management (CCCM) have ties with Huawei. Its also been made public that the so-called chief representative of the Cambridge Centre for Chinese Management is a former senior Huawei vice-president who was paid by the Chinese government.

However, according to the university, the former Huawei executive has never delivered services to the centre while the firm itself has said any suggestion of impropriety is absurd. New outlets further reports that Cambridge University has allowed the CCCM to be infiltrated by the Chinese company, which, has been banned from joining Britain’s 5G network.

Johnny Patterson, policy director of the Hong Kong Watch campaign group, has reported that the university should investigate the relationship between Huawei and the CCCM. And Ian Duncan Smith described Cambridge University as ‘one of the worst offenders when it came to relying on money from China.

‘The government needs to urgently set up an inquiry into the UK’s dependency on China across a range of institutions and companies.”

MP Tom Tugendhat, the China Research Group and chairman of the foreign affairs select committee, stated: ‘Perceived academic influence is an issue and just as universities would never take money from tobacco companies to investigate links with cancer so institutions need to be very careful about where they accept their money.’
