This is remarkable.  Looks like pure extortion/blackmail on the part of 
Groenendaal.  It's hard to interpret their demands in any other way. 

It is amazing to think that such a company advised the Irish government 
to adopt electronic voting, supposed with "expert" status.

Did Groenendaal put any similar pressure on the Irish government or 
civil service at any stage such as during the CEV reviews?  Anyone know 
whether FOI requests have been filed for the relevant correspondence?
