Malcolm Brinded Charged

Bill Campbell asks: Did Malcolm fail to wipe the crime scene free of fingerprints?

We have all seen the movies where the bad guy covers up his deadly deed by wiping clear any sign of his presence at the crime scene. Malcolm was good at this, taking care on the 11th September 2003 to have destroyed the HSE files in The Hague and the audit files in the phase 3 building of Tullos removing forever the incriminating evidence re his involvement and contribution to the deaths on Brent Bravo that day.

Surprising therefore, that when the Dutch police searched the offices in The Hague on 17 February 2016 approx 3 years after Malcolm’s surprise and unexplained departure from RDS they found a whole stack of what I understand was incriminating stuff in a file cabinet in Malcolm’s old office now occupied by the new Shell Chairman who had taken over from Ollila.

Simon Henry sure thought it was a potential smoking gun when he informed BVB on the tape recording that this whole stack of stuff they have obtained belonging to Malcolm is (nervous chuckles) probably MORE INTERESTING to the police (1). More interesting indeed, is that why Henry cut his losses and left the crime scene to escape getting personally involved.

(1) reference to taped telephone conversation 17/2/16 between SH and BVB.
