<div class="quote-block">Staff at the Cambridge offices of Deloitte and Touche could become targets of an animal rights group after their details were allegedly leaked by a company insider.<br><br><br><br>
Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) claims a mole at the auditors, whose clients include Huntingdon Life Sciences, has handed over telephone numbers and email addresses of staff from the life sciences team.<br><br><br><br>
Part of that team is based in Station Road, Cambridge.<br><br><br><br>
Natasha Avery, of SHAC, said the company could expect to become a global target.<br><br><br><br>
"We will be hitting them all over the world," she said.<br><br><br><br>
"The Cambridge office can expect to be highly targeted.<br><br><br><br>
"That will include phone blocking, office occupations and demonstrations at the homes of directors."<br><br><br><br>
Unless Deloitte severed its links with HLS, it would incur the full wrath of SHAC, she added.<br><br><br><br>
A spokesman for HLS said: "The group is focusing on yet another target and continue its campaign of harassment and intimidation."<br><br><br><br>
Cambridgeshire Police said they were aware of SHAC's intentions to target the accountancy firm, which has 18 branches in the UK, including the one in Cambridge.<br><br><br><br>
Chief Inspector Steve Pearl said: "We anticipate the usual tactics of intimidation against the company and members of its staff. We will respond appropriately to any associated criminal activity and disorder."<br><br><br><br>
Since the launch of its campaign to shut down HLS in 1998, SHAC has systematically targeted companies which have links with the Cambridgeshire drug-testing company.<br><br><br><br>
Their targets have included the Royal Bank of Scotland, whose offices including its commercial centre in Girton and branch in Hills Road have been victims of SHAC protests.<br><br><br><br>
Banking services and insurance cover for HLS are now provided by the Government.<br></div>

Deloitte will surrender eventually, just like Marsh did.<br><br><br><br>
Shac is pretty effective.<br><br><br><br>
Note: * shac does not promote violent actions.
