THE DARK SIDE OF ROYAL DUTCH SHELL

By John Donovan

Set out below is information compiled for certain third parties.

THE DARK SIDE OF ROYAL DUTCH SHELL

A series of sinister and extraordinary events took place after John Donovan issued High Court proceedings against Shell in April 1999. As can be seen Shell has admitted responsibility for some undercover activity (after it was exposed) and denied any connection with other related activity.

John Donovan High Court Writ Against Shell UK Limited issued 9 April 1998

Letter from John Donovan to Shell Transport director Sir Peter Holmes: 23 April 1998

Business Obituaries: Sir Peter Holmes: Improbable, buccaneering chairman of Shell

When he retired in 1993, he avoided taking up orthodox company directorships, but enjoyed becoming president of the Hakluyt Foundation, a discreet new outfit that provided intelligence for big corporations.
