We have received serious allegations from a purported insider directed against a senior Shell executive.
The insider equated the alleged odious activities of the relevant executive with the sex scandals surrounding Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and John Edwards. Reference was also made to a related article in Time Magazine.
The purported insider claims that the alleged serial infidelity involving Shell staff is widely known among employees within the relevant Shell company.
Last week we sent an email to the relevant Shell executive supplying extracts from detailed information provided to us in emails we have received. We said that if the executive categorically denied the allegations, we would accept his word and take no further action. There has been no response.
Under the circumstances, we will supply to Mr Michiel Brandjes, the Company Secretary & General Counsel Corporate of Royal Dutch Shell Plc a copy of our emails to the Shell executive in question, who has had advance sight of this article. (text only)
