Deloitte & Touche staff fear animal rights backlash

Staff
at accountants Deloitte & Touche are being offered specialist security
protection after their personal details were passed on to animal welfare
activists.

The
details are particularly sensitive as the firm acts as auditor for the
controversial drug testing company Huntington Life Sciences.

Reports
in The Times newspaper claim that a secretary sympathetic to the activists’
cause passed on the details of 135 key staff from around the country.

The
Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty group have allegedly printed the details on
70,000 leaflets and plan to mount protests at the homes and offices of Deloitte
employees.

The
group has said it will target the staff regardless of their links to Huntington
in a bid to force Deloitte & Touche to reconsider its position
