The invoice for the alcohol has been the foundation of a two year blackmailing operation with OSSL bombarding money demands on Shell for alcohol Shell had already paid for in full. Consequently, the OSSL invoice is of huge significance in relation to alleged very serious corruption and associated blackmail on an unprecedented scale.
EMAIL FROM JOHN DONOVAN TO FRANCES FITZGERALD, JUSTICE MINISTER OF IRELAND.
From: John Donovan <johndonovan@
I am writing as a follow-up to my email of 4 November 2014.
Your office acknowledged safe receipt in the response sent on your behalf on 19 November.
I believe you will find that a number of TD’s will be contacting you on this matter.
There is a key piece of evidence that I suspect has never received the scrutiny it deserves.
I refer to the OSSL invoice to Shell &P Ireland dated 24 August 2012 mentioned explicitly in the Observer article and published several times by me.
Shell has recently confirmed in writing receipt of this invoice. See page 2 of the 13 page document entitled “Confidential Subject Access Request: Mr Desmond Kane, attached to a two page letter to Mr Kane from Shell E&P Ireland Limited dated 3 October 2014.
The invoice for Garda alcohol was generated by OSSL on August 24, 2012 and mailed to SEPIL on that day and is dated such, for deliveries it claims were made in 2007.
That constitutes absolute identification by Shell of the invoice and confirmation that it was received and read by Shell, which has never to my knowledge stated that the invoice is fake. Clearly that is not the case. It may be fraudulent, flawed or inaccurate, but it is not fake.
According to the invoice, the alcohol was transported across the border.
It shows a VAT number and other specific information.
Thus far there has been three Irish police investigations and two internal investigations by Shell.
What is the betting that no one has approached the Irish Tax and Customs authority to investigate the legitimacy of the all important invoice?
The Northern Ireland police and taxation authorities may also be interested.
The invoice is for alcohol supplied to the Garda on behalf of Shell. Mr Marc Fitzgibbon has confirmed verbally on record and in writing that the alcohol was discussed in his presence with senior people at Shell. There is now no question that it was supplied.
The invoice for the alcohol has been the foundation of a two year blackmailing operation with OSSL bombarding money demands on Shell for alcohol Shell had already paid for in full.
Consequently, the OSSL invoice is of huge significance in relation to alleged very serious corruption and associated blackmail on an unprecedented scale.
Have I got to report this aspect myself to the Irish Revenue? I am not even an Irish citizen. When is someone in the Irish government going to have this matter properly investigated once and for all?
The last investigation by the Garda Ombudsman was an absolute farce. The lead investigator was not interested in the invoice, even though I supplied it to him.
Please advise of what action, if any, you intend to take.
This time the claim that there is no evidence will not wash.
It exists and has been authenticated by Shell.
PS. I am sending copies of this email to every TD and Senator who have email addresses.
