Who else is spying II

Last month, when the story of Solid Energy's spying on protestors broke, I wondered aloud who else was spying, and speculated in particular on Crown Research Institutes which had been the subject of anti-GE protests, notably AgResearch and Crop & Food.

Fortunately, a regular reader had the same idea, and lodged a couple of OIAs. They're still waiting on a response from AgResearch, but can confirm that neither Crop & Food, HortResearch or Landcare have ever used the services of Thompson & Clark, or other private investigation firms. That's some good news at least.

Update: GNS also denies having used Thompson & Clark, or any other private investigators.
