Reactie van Google
Volgens een woordvoerder van Google is het concern de dupe van een misdrijf. Simon Tusha werkt sinds 2009 niet meer bij Google. De schriftelijke reactie van Google luidt: 'We are the victim of the crimes that will be charged, i.e., both Governments are rightly convinced that we did nothing wrong, and our former employee Tusha did (and to Google's detriment). We have been fully supportive of the government's investigation of this matter.'
'We started the conversations about the datacenter after Simon Tusha left. He was not involved. We own the land we are currently building a data center on. TCN is not involved at all. TCN is the company owned by Stroink. That data center was built before we ever showed interest. We started leasing space at the TCN data center back in 2006. Then a couple years ago we bought a green field parcel of land, also in Eemshaven. That is the land we are building the datacenter on'.
