Email purportedly sent on 14 June 2012 by Shell Libya staff to senior Shell managers.
The email is in reaction to Shell’s recent decision to terminate its exploration contracts in Libya.
Shell apparently preferred to deal with Mad Dog Gaddafi.

Subject: Demands of Shell Libyan Staff
Jan et all,
Shell used unethical methods to announce it’s going out from Libya, ignoring all international and official protocols in such matters, you chased NOC chairman in Turkey and abused the use of verbal understanding, even more you have damaged the reputation of NOC, negatively affected the potential of Sirte Basin even though all know that Shell failed due to wrong decisions and wrong people in the company EXPATS of course who damaged wells with staff with no capability of what so called Shell Expats.
Even more, you have made all employees lose their value in the market by your quick announcement, this require certain actions to be taken.
In the past you have abused the use of your authorities with Libyan staff and covered on a thieve who abused his role and terrorized his staff and others. Cars bidding is a proof of the negative intention of what so called crisis team.
Now you want to leave Libya, go and leave, Shell is not the only in the world however it is the top in being the worst multinational company in the whole world.
We Have straight forward demands
Compensate all Libyan staff core team and redundant with two years salary no differentiation at all and non taxable.
Apply Libyan Law on Salah shafai for his abuse
Legally review the cars bidding carried out by Crisis team.
Ahmed Aoun and HR manager must be replaced with immediate effect
Remove any authorities from Ibtisam Ghadafi and Zohour Alshilli for abusing their role and mistreating SEPLG staff.
Finally, you still think that we cannot act, bad for you …..we know when and how to act. We have enough evidences to convict Shell senior management and ruin the company reputation.
Finally have some decency and dignity in your last days and show some respect to Libyans who went through revolution and killed the tyrant, such people have all the ability and with no doubt are capable
