The CCP-backed company Nuctech produced security scanner has infiltrated Europe

Tranlated by: MOS Health Team – Wenfei

Associated Press reported on January 20th the CCP-backed Nuctech has successfully infiltrated the European security market, despite that the United States has frozen Nuctech for security reasons and listed it on the Entity List of the Bureau of Industry and Security.

Security officials in Europe and the United States expressed concern that the Nuctech security scanner could pose significant national security risks, because sensitive documents and information stored on electronic devices scanned by the machine may be obtained by the CCP agents. Likewise, if Nuctech’s scanning devices are privately set to ignore explosives and firearms, dangerous people can pass unhindered through security checks. Such loopholes could facilitate the CCP surreptitiously supporting hazardous activities, such as terrorist attacks. The Canadian government also considers Nuctech a “high threat” to espionage.

Despite security vulnerabilities, Nuctech has successfully provided equipment and services to customers in more than 170 countries and regions worldwide, including more than 1,000 security scanners installed in 2019 for European government agencies, customs, civil aviation airports, and ports.
