UK: Barclays targeted by Huntingdon Life Sciences campaigners
Date: 26 Jan 2002
The UK's Barclay's bank is the latest financial institution to find itself the recipient of active attention by the animal rights campaigners trying to close down Huntingdon Life Sciences.
The new focus
comes as a result of the contention that Barclays has business
connections with Stephens, the Huntingdon financial backer, which
recently announced it was selling its stake.
Stephens had previously suggested that its stake would be taken over by
new investors by the end of the month. The campaigners have said they
will continue to attack the company and those with whom they do business
until this actually happens. The campaigners also want to force Stephens
to identify the new backers.
