John Donovan 1984

By John Donovan

My company Don Marketing supplied the spectacularly successful Shell Make Money game that ran on Shell forecourts during 1984/5 in a number of countries, including the UK. 

Years later, Shell deliberately ignored the signed confirmation of agreement below while surreptitiously producing a subsequent flawed Shell Make Money without our knowledge or consent. 

Shell executives blatantly lied about what was going on but was forced to settle the matter after Don Marketing issued a High Court Writ.

I still have the original version of the Shell letter and even the franked dated envelope it was received in. That was fortunate because Shell later alleged that documents provided within our discovery were fake (false allegations Shell subsequently withdrew).

We later found out that Shell had withheld materially important documents it was legally obliged to supply within the same discovery process.

Paul King, the Shell executive who signed the letter had no involvement in the ruthless deceit. He had already left the company because of its depressing lack of ethics. As he pointed out in writing at the time of his resignation, Shell was no longer the company that he had joined.

My guess is that Mr King no longer had the stomach to continue working alongside the corrupt bunch of liars that took over Shell UK’s advertising and marketing department, aided and abetted by some members of Shell’s legal department.  Evidence is still available if Shell wishes to challenge what I am stating as fact. 

All a long while ago, but nothing much seems to have changed. Corruption and fraud continues, while Shell pretends to operate on an ethical basis within its claimed business principles.

The subsequent Shell reserves scandal was described in a BBC programme as the biggest fraud in history (now superseded by OPL 245). 

Ben van Beurden served as the presumably innocent private assistant of Sir Philip Watts who was forced to resign in disgrace (with an $18.5 million payoff to buy his silence) after the true sorry state of Shell’s hydrocarbon reserves had been covered-up for years. False figures had been routinely supplied to the U.S. and UK financial authorities on an annual basis.

BvB is now tainted by the Nigerian OPL 245 scandal after his off-the-cuff instruction not to cooperate with the police was recorded in a wiretapped phone conversation while a raid on Shell’s Dutch HQ was underway. In the same infamous call, he also mentioned Shell’s hiring of MI6 “people” (who represented Shell in the dastardly OPL 245 negotiations). Another unprompted utterance he must regret. 

Suffice it to say that Shell’s coverup-culture, International skullduggery and appalling corruption endures.

POSTING ON SHELL BLOG BY “SNIPER” 20 JUNE 2018

There’s a bit of pattern here. Corruption seems to be running through the veins of Shell. We see in all these recent tax articles how they seem to be snuggled up in bed with the Dutch Government. Will anything come of this? Of course not silly. It has been going on for years. There is even a department called Government Relations which is staffed by – yes you guessed it – former government employees. Where was Van Beurden a few days ago, for three whole days? The very secretive Bilderberg meeting in Turin (Guardian article by Charlie Skelton can be found on this website), along with many of the worlds elite businessmen and politicians, AND the Dutch king. The outcomes of the meeting were not something I saw on any of the Shell internal or external communication messaging. Funny that, seeing how they always share even the most mundane van Beurden news. So will Shell be brought to account for its actions in OPL? I somehow doubt it. But there is some hope. Will the real Slim Robinson please stand up.

REUTERS STAFF: JUNE 13, 2018 / 4:03 PM

ROME (Reuters) – Italy’s Supreme Court threw out an appeal from Shell and four former Shell managers to stymie a corruption trial that has also involved Eni’s chief executive, legal sources said on Wednesday.

The long-running graft case on alleged corruption in Nigeria, revolves around the 2011 purchase by Eni and Shell of Nigeria’s OPL-245 offshore oilfield for about $1.3 billion. The trial began last month, with the next hearing set for June 20.

The appeal was aimed at reversing the trial to the preliminary hearing stage due to what it said were procedural errors, but the court decided the appeal was inadmissible.

Nine current and former executives or contractors, including Eni Chief Executive Claudio Descalzi, have been accused by Italian prosecutors of paying bribes to secure the license to explore OPL-245. The field holds an estimated 9 billion barrels of oil but has never entered production.

All have denied wrongdoing. An Eni spokesman on Wednesday reiterated that Eni denied any wrongdoing.

If found guilty, those on trial could face jail.

A Shell spokeswoman said on Wednesday: “Based on our review of the Prosecutor of Milan’s file and all of the information and facts available to us, we do not believe that there is a basis to convict Shell or any of its former employees.”

As a rule, the Supreme Court does not comment on its decisions.

Italy’s Supreme Court rejects an appeal from Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) and four former Shell managers to reverse a trial on alleged corruption in Nigeria, which also has implicated Eni (NYSE:E) CEO Claudio Descalzi.

The appeal hoped to reverse the trial to the preliminary hearing stage due to what it said were procedural errors, but the court ruled that the appeal was inadmissible.

Nine current and former company executives or contractors, including Descalzi, are accused by Italian prosecutors of paying bribes to secure the license to explore Nigeria’s OPL-245 offshore oilfield, which holds ~9B barrels of oil but has never entered production.
