America's Cup: Spy Passion
Today, the current owners of the America's Cup – the Emirates Team New Zealand team – have published a sensational communique in which, however, there are too many unsaid.
The essence of the communique is this: among the employees of the Emirates Team New Zealand team, as well as the ACE company (America’s Cup Event Ltd), which organizes the next America’s Cup draw, … a spy network!
To whom a group of informants transmitted secret information, the communique did not communicate. What kind of information was this is not specified. How many informants were – one can only guess. At the same time, the communique emphasizes that the spies tried to get some “sensitive data” regarding “financial and structural issues”, which could compromise the Emirates Team New Zealand team and ACE.
Customers, as the communique hints, were in Europe. But instead of real data, they eventually got a fake (apparently specially fabricated by New Zealanders).
The entire spy network has been identified and fired from Emirates Team New Zealand and ACE. However, the case is far from closed. The New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment intends to launch a formal investigation so that there are no blind spots.
We must admit that we also want this. And so far little is clear.
