Apple says it has refused requests by Chinese authorities to deliver its source code, refuting allegations made against the company during its well-publicized battle with the U.S. government over the San Bernardino case, Reuters reports. Speaking at a hearing called by a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on the encryption debate between tech companies and law enforcement, Apple representatives said the company had been approached by Chinese law enforcement within the last two years to hand over source code, but did not do so. "I want to be very clear on this," said, Bruce Sewell, Apple general counsel. "We have not provided source code to the Chinese government." Apple’s statements follow a number of U.S. law enforcement claims saying the company secretly helped Chinese officials while refusing to assist on domestic criminal cases.
