Allegations against Royal Dutch Shell: Truth is not libel

COMMENTS FROM A FORMER EMPLOYEE OF SHELL OIL USA

Read your comments about Shell not suing Bill Campbell for libel. Obviously, they have not done so because they could not win. Truth is not libel.

One might ask why RD Shell has not sued you for libel. You have accused them publicly of all manner of nefarious undertaking. As I recall, you recently even accused them of engaging in espionage against a sovereign government and military ally of the United Kingdom, the United States. Yet not a word out of RD Shell management. Why? Obviously, this particular allegation must probably be true as well. In the US that is a crime that has no statute of limitations and carries with it a life sentence, without possibility of parole, by the way, when the object of such endeavors are nuclear weapons design secrets.

And now all the Wiki-leaks disclosures about RD Shell’s ‘shadow government’ in Nigeria that Shell management is furiously trying to deny. Who could they sue for libel on this disclosure? Their own VP, Ms. Ann Pickard? The US State Dept.? Or the fellow who broke the story?

I bet Ms. Pickard’s career is now ‘toast’, however. Loose lips ….. One wonders how much that ‘blunder’ is going to cost Shell. That depends upon how effective their ‘shadow government’ is, I suppose.

All of this ‘truth’ this must be very frustrating for RD Shell management and their army of glorified, blood sucking ambulance chasers.
