Injunction protects shareholders
Huntingdon Life Sciences
Firms linked to Huntingdon Life Sciences have been targeted
A pharmaceutical giant has been granted an injunction to protect shareholders threatened by animal rights activists.

The High Court ruled that the activists cannot publish GlaxoSmithKline's shareholders' details on the internet.

The activists made the threats because of the drug firm's connection with Huntingdon Life Sciences, in Cambs.

The international firm won a revised injunction after shareholders were told to sell their stake or have their private details published on the web.

GlaxoSmithKline has bases in East Anglia at Harlow in Essex, Stevenage, Ware and Welwyn in Herts.
