Crypto AG

A. W. Farmer made this Official Information request to Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for A. W. Farmer to read recent responses and update the status.

From: A. W. Farmer

Dear Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade,

Please provide me with any advice/memos/or reports that mention Crypto AG, or it's alternatives "Thesaurus" or "Rubicon," from October 2019 to April 2020.

If a large volume, I am particularly interested in any advice that was prepared for any Minister of the Crown, AND any internal communication which addresses reputational harm that could be caused by the revelation that Crypto AG was co-owned by the CIA.

Yours faithfully,

A. W. Farmer
