What smells wrong here is Meng Wei herself got a publication ban on the details of the arrest being made public. Why? If I was accused of something, I'd want the accusation to be right out there for everyone to read so it could be refuted correctly.
As for trusting Huawei over the orange one, the usual apologists will be along soon, its all just reds in the bed repeated blah blah blah. Except I have worked closely at a low level with their hardware, and seen *things*. Huawei are master tacticians and brilliant at suppression of results and manipulation of PHB's. And that's as much as I want to say even anon.
