All Cold On The 5G Front : The case against Huawei : Didn't we almost have it all

Was a smash hit for Whitney Houston wayback in 1987,  taken from her second album Whitney.

Didn't we almost have it all
The night we held on till the morning
You know you'll never love that way again
Didn't we almost have it all

Who can blame Huawei,  if they are playing that song now,  for this is a firm, who almost had it all 

when it concerned 5G in South East Asia , before Vietnam 

broke the juggernaut of a hold , Huawei held in South East Asia,  followed by Singapore,  Thailand and maybe even Malaysia.

They are effort though to thrown Huawei a lifeline,  this despite the Government of Ismail Sabri having decided to go with Digital Nasional Bhd. READ : DNB: Ericsson's RM11b 5G bid is RM700m lower than nearest competitor

Digital Nasional  Bhd,  have cited cost and cost is a very important factor.  READ : It’s 20 sen or better per GB, baby – That’s the standard to beat in any alternate solution to DNB’s much-thumped model

But there is more than money in play here, and to be fair to Huawei as a  company, it has nothing much to with them or even in theor contoh, but  it all has to do with the LAW.

SPECIFICALLY,   it has to do with a 2017 legislation READ : China passes tough new intelligence lawwhich means In theory Huawei must co operate with the authorities to assist in any broader strategic and national security objective.

Article 7   :   “Any organization or citizen shall support, assist, and cooperate with state intelligence work according to law.”

Article 14,  :  “State intelligence work organs, when legally carrying forth intelligence work, may demand that concerned organs, organizations, or citizens provide needed support, assistance, and cooperation.”

 Article 17, :  Relevant Chinese intelligence and security agencies can commandeer communications equipment and property of specific individuals or organizations, as deemed fit.
