Greenpeace Fined for Illegally Placing GPS Devices on Fishing Boats

Last January, Greenpeace was charged and acquitted in a Danish court for illegally placing a number of GPS devices in numerous fishing boats to monitor their activities. Recently, the Danish Eastern High Court overturned the decision based on the prosecution’s appeal and fined the radical activist group NOK 25,000 (USD 4,400) for trespassing.

Greenpeace was accused under the nation’s Criminal Code (Section 264), which says it is illegal “with intent to obtain or become aware of information about a company’s trade secrets.”
