SHELL CORNERED ON CORRUPTION ALLEGATIONS

Screen Shot 2013-08-21 at 21.37.35You can bring this whole episode to a speedy conclusion if Shell simply states that the OSSL allegations are entirely false and the items listed on the related invoice dated 24 August 2012 entirely fictitious.  It would follow that if the allegations are false and the items on the invoice false, then bearing in mind that OSSL has been pressing Shell for payment on false grounds, Shell must surely be legally bound as a public company to call in the Garda and/or the UK police to immediately investigate the relevant Irish or UK citizens responsible for what would undoubtedly be a very serious criminal act. If Shell fails to clarify the situation by making an unambiguous statement along the lines I have suggested, then the good people of Ireland will be able to draw their own conclusions.

EMAIL FROM JOHN DONOVAN TO THE COMPANY SECRETARY & GENERAL COUNSEL CORPORATE OF ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC, MR MICHIEL BRANDJES

Mr Brandjes

I first wrote to you about the OSSL allegations nearly a year ago and have been regularly publishing articles on the matter ever since.

In recent days your company has stated that it unequivocally rejects the allegations made by OSSL.

Is that rejection based on your internal investigation?

If it is, it undermines the validity of the rejection because your investigation was carried out by Shell employees and consequently was not independent.

You can bring this whole episode to a speedy conclusion if Shell simply states that the OSSL allegations are entirely false and the items listed on the related invoice dated 24 August 2012 entirely fictitious.

It would follow that if the allegations are false and the items on the invoice false, then bearing in mind that OSSL has been pressing Shell for payment on false grounds, Shell must surely be legally bound as a public company to call in the Garda and/or the UK police to immediately investigate the relevant Irish or UK citizens responsible for what would undoubtedly be a very serious criminal act.

If Shell fails to clarify the situation by making an unambiguous statement along the lines I have suggested, then the good people of Ireland will be able to draw their own conclusions.

Finally, it is almost a month since my 96 year old father passed away. There has been no condolences offered by Shell. Not a singly word of sympathy.

Not even a pretence of being decent and civilised towards a long standing formidable adversary.

Under the circumstances I can no longer sign off emails to you with the customary “Best Regards”.

All I am left with is disgust with you and your senior colleagues.

A Long Term Shell Shareholder
