Voting computer firm to sue govt

Sdu, which makes voting computers, is to launch a multi-million euro claim against the Dutch government for refusing to approve its new machines for use in the March 7 provincial elections.

The company says the government’s decision will cost it €1.35m in lost earnings. It now wants to recover its losses, plus a sum for damage to its reputation.
Sdu was sold by the state to private equity firms ABN Amro Capital and Allianz last year.
