Wednesday July 1st 1998 a warning letter was sent out against a French activist
by the name of Adrian Franks.
We have reasons to believe Adrian is offering
information about activist groups to multinational cooperations. We are
not sure for 100%, we have no actual proof of him selling information.
Still we decided to issue the warning after we had a long conversation
with Adrian. At that point our research had been going on for several
weeks, and rumours started going around. We felt we were obliged to
present what we had found so far, to share the information with other
groups Adrian attended, also those we had no knowledge of as yet. It was
only after carefull consideration that we went ahead.
After the initial
warning, we now present this website with the results of our research so

Het verslag van een speurtocht.
Mid May Buro Jansen & Janssen was
approached by people from A SEED Europe who had serious doubts about the
reliability of a French activist, Adrian Frank from Equihen-Plage. An
anonymous letter with severe accusations was reason enough to start an
investigation. He was said to be selling information about activist groups
to multinational cooperations.
Why was Adrian exposed, and is he a serious risk?
Adrian is not a clear and
present danger. As far as we know he is not an infiltrator sent by any
gouvernmental secret service. But he managed to come a long way in just
over two years, using the openess of activist circles.
The risk of
Adrian selling information compelled us to come out with what we have.
Actions planned don't necessairily have to go wrong, if he's involved. But
on the long run, target companies provided with insider dealing might
improve their answers to campaigns.
