In response to this, also via Reuters, the U.S. Department of Commerce is banning American companies from selling any products (hardware or software) to ZTE for the next seven years.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has announced a ban on exporting parts to the Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE.

While ZTE can still sell its smartphones in the USA, the company's market share in the unlocked segment is very small. On April 16, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur L. Ross, Jr. It said the Shenzhen-based company has cooperated with hundreds of U.S. companies and contributed to the country's job creation. While ZTE makes a range of models, it's made particular in-roads in the US with budget handsets that are sold through discount and prepaid carriers.

This means that not only did ZTE break US trade law and attempt to cover it up, but it is not following through with the punishments for that transgression.

The U.S. hit Chinese telecom firm ZTE with a potentially devastating enforcement action on April 16, prohibiting the company from doing business with American firms.

ZTE was caught red-handed engaging in trade that violates US law.

A five-year federal investigation found last year that ZTE had conspired to evade USA embargoes by buying US components, incorporating them into ZTE equipment and illegally shipping them to Iran.

On its website, ZTE says it is the fourth largest supplier of smartphones in the USA, serving all four major wireless operators with low and mid-price handsets - including devices for pre-paid plans. ZTE also had to dismiss four senior staffers and cut bonuses or otherwise discipline 35 others key employees. The company was required to discipline certain employees as part of that agreement. Although Commerce Department officials would not discuss the report, they said the department followed up in February.
