OSSL BLACKMAIL PLOT AGAINST SHELL

To its credit Shell has not given in to the subsequent money demands, but neither has it apparently reported the matter to the Irish Police. One can see the difficulty.

Little known key role of Michiel Brandjes in Shell reserves scandal

However, unbeknown to Van de Vijver, Michiel Brandjes (right), who was alarmed by the findings of the report, sent a copy to a New York law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore. This meant that events were no longer in the control of Shell. Instead, Shell’s most sensitive issue since its close association with Adolf Hitler […]

Hugh Mitchell named as Shell interim legal boss

We can only speculate about the sudden resignation of Peter Rees QC days after Ben van Beurden took up his new role as Chief Executive Officer of the company.

How Shell exploited the tragedy that befell a filling station franchisee

Tiresome outrageous allegations by OSSL against Shell

Posting on our Shell Blog 19 Sept 2013: The practice of accusing Shell of something outrageous and then claiming that lack of rebuttal equates to proof of that claim is getting quite tiresome.

BG Group CEO Chris Finlayson, past indiscretions at Shell

In summary, Finlayson (right) sees himself as a victim to the goings-on in 1999, just one of many victims in the then Shell Expro, described in our Audit notes as a hostile environment of extreme denial.  I can concur that Chris was a victim, when for example he made light of the Touch F-All scandal […]

SHELL INDUSTRIAL SCALE CORRUPTION OF THE IRISH POLICE

Astonishingly, none of these Shell officials, nor John Gilligan, Alan Shatter, or anyone else in the Irish government, police, or any oversight body, has asked me to supply the voluminous evidence.

SHELL SPONSORED CORRUPTION OF THE IRISH POLICE

Under the circumstances, I wondered if a pilot scheme was underway in Ireland already, with Shell sponsoring the Garda?
