French spy case suspect says he hired private eye

October 17, 2008

PARIS (AP) - The head of the French distributor of Taser stun guns has acknowledged hiring a private eye to gather information about far-left politician Olivier Besancenot. Antoine Di Zazzo, who heads Taser distributor SMP Technologies, was one of seven people handed initial charges in a probe Thursday. The investigation grew out of Besancenot's complaint that he and his family were spied on. Besancenot has spoken out against Tasers, saying the stun guns were responsible for 150 deaths in the U.S.

Di Zazzo acknowledges he paid a private detective agency to find out where Besancenot lived and get information about property he owned. In a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Friday, Di Zazzo denied that amounted to spying.

This guy is not a Taser employee, why are you posting false information??? This guy runs his own independent company that sell stun guns. What's your point here other then harassment??

Well, anonymous, there are many police officers who are not taser employees either, yet I post reports about police officers almost daily. This entire issue has dark, dank corners worldwide that haven’t yet seen the light of day. I sweep up the dustballs that catch my eye and deposit them into this one place (truthnottasers) until the day when someone can finally piece together the puzzle. That was the original intent of this website and so it remains. I am not here to harass anyone at all. Believe me, I don’t make this stuff up – who could?! I simply re-report it for the many who DO think I (and others) may be onto something. I believe it's all pretty relevant and relational.
