The Surveillance Group Ltd Denies Bugging the Ecuadorian Embassy

British security firm Surveillance Group Ltd has denied bugging the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
"We have this morning heard an accusation the source of which is apparently Ricardo Patino, the Ecuadorian Foreign Minister suggesting that we have bugged the Ecuadorian Embassy.
This is completely untrue. The Surveillance Group do not and have never been engaged in any activities of this nature.
We have not been contacted by any member of the Ecuadorian Government and our first notification about this incident was via the press this morning.
This is a wholly untrue assertion."
– Timothy Young, CEO, Surveillance Group Ltd. (Press Release - 04/07/2013)

We are waiting see if the embassy produces some substantial evidence to support their claim. After all, "What is in a name?" R&J (II, ii, 1-2)
