WARSAW, Poland — A Chinese businessman and a Pole have been arrested by Poland’s Internal Security Agency on suspicion of espionage, an official said Friday.

Maciej Wasik, deputy head of Poland’s special services, said that the operation had been underway for a long time and was planned with care.

A Huawei spokeswoman later confirmed to NBC News that one of its employees had been arrested but would not comment further on the case, which comes amid Western criticism of the Chinese telecoms equipment maker.
