Wageningen UR won’t sue Koert

Willem Koert called Wageningen UR a sinking ship because Danone moved its lab off campus.

The ex-Resource journalist wrote this in his column in Elsevier Voedingsmiddelen Industrie. Wageningen UR consulted a lawyer who considered Koert’s words defamatory and called on him not to make any more negative statements about Wageningen UR. On his website, Koert replied that he could make no such promises. Wageningen UR is leaving it at that, the Communication department announced last week. / AS
