GlaxoSmithKline executives targeted by extremists

8th February 2006

Two GlaxoSmithKline have reportedly been targeted by animal rights extremists.

The Independent reports that non-executive director Sir Ian Prosser and company secretary Simon Bicknell were targeted with letters being sent to their neighbours making a series of allegations.

The Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for the attacks saying that the company is a client of Huntingdon Life Sciences.

A Roche executive is also thought to have been hit by the extremist campaign, which along with letters to neighbours has involved graffiti of allegations being daubed over property.

The news follows a report from the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry that found the number of such extremist attacks fell during 2005, but the number of aggressive attacks increased.
