Wrench Script for another user

Dear all,

I have two directories in /med/app/ :

Code:
drwxr-x---   7 fuse     staff       4.0K Jul 12 13:46 fuse
drwxr-xr-x  23 debmed   tabs         88K Jul 12 13:52 debmed

fuse & debmed are two separate users on the system.

I have a script in /med/appl/fuse/:
Code:
-rwxr-xr-x   1 fuse     staff        167 Jul 12 13:51 restartFuse.ksh

that I want debmed to run. I cannot change the permissions of the folders of either fuse or debmed.

How can this be achieved?

You could add debmed to the staff group in order that they could read the directory
