SOME SENSATIONAL INFORMATION BACKED UP BY DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE HAS BEEN SUPPLIED TO US TODAY BY BILL CAMPBELL, THE FORMER GROUP AUDITOR OF SHELL.
The same information containing extremely serious allegations has been emailed to Michiel Brandjes, Company Secretary and General Counsel Corporate of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. It has also been supplied by Bill Campbell to a number of other important parties including the HSE.
We plan to publish it all later today.
In the meantime, this is extract from the statement made by Bill Campbell:
“OF ONE THING YOU CAN BE SURE, SHELL WILL NOT IN ANY WAY DENY THESE CHARGES. THEY SIMPLY CANNOT. TO DO SO WOULD EMBARRASS THE ENFORCING AUTHORITY, THE REGULATOR, FOR IT IS THEY WHO PROVIDED ME WITH THE EVIDENCE AGAINST SHELL.”
