According to reports by Reuters, one executive at Chinese telecom giant Huawei was much closer than previously known to the Hong Kong partner company implicated in illegally selling Hewlett-Packard networking gear to Iran. Cathy Meng, Huawei’s CFO (and the daughter its  founder), served on Skycom’s board for fourteen months between 2008-2009. The company’s description of Skycom has since declined from “a major partner” to “a normal partner.” [Source: Reuters]
