Shell worker victim of flagrant HSE breaches resulting in radioactive contamination

The readings were literally sky high … over 6300 Counts per second with the presence of Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation. the entire area was highly contaminated, but all warning signs had been removed and no personal protective equipment available. I do have a host of documentation to back up my case and I have been advised by my Member of Parliament and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to pursue this issue due to the horrendous nature of the incident accompanied with the Duty of Care that “Shell” should have initiated to show that they are serious about protecting employees, contractors and joint venture personnel.

The text in black italics above comes from an email I received on 27 November from a former Shell worker, Mr Keith MacDonald, who has a tragic tale to tell.

In August 2000, Keith worked for Al Furat Pet Co (AFPC) in Syria. Shell has a major stake (32%) in the company. AFPC is managed by Syria Shell Development (SSPD). Syria Shell Petroleum Development B.V. operates as a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc. Furthermore, Mr. MacDonald received his instructions at AFPC directly from Shell managers. He was to all intents and purposes working for Shell.  read more

Dutch law firm Prakken d’Oliveira Target of Shell Spying?

Email Sent To Prakken d’Oliveira by John Donovan, Sunday 10 December 2017

Be Warned: Your Law Firm is Almost Certainly Under Surveillance Again!

As Prakken d’Oliveira is aware, for more than two decades I have operated websites focussed on the *global misdeeds of Royal Dutch Shell. In more recent years, mainly via my websites royaldutchshellplc.com and royaldutchshellgroup.com. I make the above warning based on my own experience during a long drawn out acrimonious relationship with Shell.

Perceived as an arch-enemy, I have been the target of multiple spying operations carried out over many years at the behest of Shell senior management. I have irrefutable proof in the form of letters of admission by Shell and confidential Shell internal communications obtained in response to SAR applications under the Data Protection Act. UK police have carried out  investigations covering burglaries, threats of violence and repeated cyber attacks. read more

SHELL PROJECT HERCULES RIGGED TENDER PROCESS

RIGGED TENDER PROCESS

AJL arranged for the same favored agency to miraculously win a SMART contract that had been put out to tender, even though they never took part in the tender. This was analogous to a horse winning a race in which it did not run.

I found irrefutable evidence in discovery that AJL had masterminded the rigging of the tender process. The conspiracy involved other Shell staff, including his line manager and, at least, one senior executive still employed by Shell, Mr. Tim Hannigan. read more

Investigate Shell for complicity in murder, rape and torture says Amnesty International

Massive cache of internal documents and other evidence points to Shell’s complicity in horrific crimes committed by the Nigerian military in the 1990s

–      New Amnesty International report calls for a criminal investigation

Amnesty International is calling on Nigeria, the UK and the Netherlands to launch investigations into Anglo-Dutch oil giant Shell, over its role in a swathe of horrific crimes committed by the Nigerian military government in the oil-producing Ogoniland region in the 1990s.

The organization has released a ground-breaking review of thousands of pages of internal company documents and witness statements, as well as Amnesty International’s own archive from the period.

The Nigerian military’s campaign to silence the Ogoni people’s protests against Shell’s pollution led to widespread and serious human rights violations, many of which also amounted to criminal offences. read more

SHELL EVADING RESPONSIBILITY IN NIGERIA

My name is Esher Kiobel. I would like to tell you about my epic fight with the Goliath oil company Royal Dutch Shell, whose army of lawyers have battled since 2001 to prevent my case against the evil company from being heard in court. I hold Shell responsible for crimes against my family, including the execution of my distinguished husband Dr. Barinem Kiobel who was hanged along with fellow Ogoni, collectively known as the Ogoni 9. Ken Saro-Wiwa, a winner of the Goldman Environmental Prize, was also one of the Ogoni 9. read more

Message ends

Comment by John Donovan

The above message relates to Shell sponsored corruption of the Irish police force in relation to the Corrib Gas project. The Minister referred to in the message is Ms Frances Fitzgerald, T.D. – currently Deputy Prime Minister of Ireland whose actions in relation to corruption in the Irish police looks like they may bring down the whole Irish government. Later today I will publish my correspondence on Irish police corruption with the minister. 

It was at my instigation that the subject was first raised in the Irish Parliament.  read more

An unscrupulous Shell executive

Extracts from the ebook “John Donovan, Shell’s Nightmare” (now available on Amazon websites globally)

From pages 37, 38 & 39

PLEASE NOTE THAT LINKS TO THE EVIDENCE – SHELL INTERNAL EMAILS ETC IN THIS EXTRACT HAVE ALL BEEN DISABLED. THEY ARE, HOWEVER, ALL OPERATIONAL WITHIN THE EBOOK. 

Extract begins

The actions of an ambitious, unethical young Shell executive, intent on ruthlessly exploiting his position at Shell for personal gain, poisoned the previously excellent relationship we had enjoyed with the oil giant. Unfortunately, Shell senior management gave their full backing to the relevant unscrupulous executive: a decision they must regret as it has since cost the Group billions of dollars. read more

Corporate Reputation: 12 Steps to Safeguarding and Recovering Reputation

Extracts from chapter entitled “Reputation Loss” page 20:

One such empowered activist is arch Shell critic Alfred Donovan. No one was more surprised than Royal Dutch Shell PLC to learn that this 88-year-old British army veteran had purchased the Internet domain name www.royaldutchshellplc.com. The gadfly Donovan was a well-known, though underestimated, critic of the company. By acquiring the domain name, Donovan obtained the perfect platform to voice his criticisms of the oil giant. Who would have thought a decade ago that such an unlikely individual could stand up to a corporate powerhouse, waging a war of words against one of the world’s largest companies? read more

Case against Malcolm Brinded as stated by retired Shell Group Auditor

EMAIL SENT TODAY BY BILL CAMPBELL, RETIRED HSE GROUP AUDITOR, SHELL INTERNATIONAL. RECIPIENTS INCLUDE TWO TOP PEOPLE AT ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC. NO MENTION OF OPL 245. 

From: William Campbell Subject: Search Results The case against Malcolm Brinded – Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com Date: 8 November 2017 at 15:19:56 GMT To: [email protected] Cc: [email protected], John Donovan [email protected]

BEGINS:

Malcolm Brinded was appointed recently as President of the Energy Institute. The attachment covers a sworn deposition copied to a senior police officer at Grampian Police and the Scottish Justice Minister, and the Presiding Officer at the Scottish Parliament.  It is similar in tone and substance to a deposition made to the then Lord Justice General for Scotland in 2005.  This role is occupied by the most senior Judge within the Scottish legal system.

Suzanne Beard is the Head of Professional Affairs at the EI who monitors ethics and compliance at the Institute to ensure at all times members of the Institute uphold the good name of the Profession.  Sue has replied to my concerns that Malcolm has been open and honest about historic allegations made against him but I doubt very much if Malcolm has been as open and honest as he should have been. For clarity Beard should be made aware that Linda acts as counsel to the RDS Chairman Holliday. read more

Since the 1990s, Shell has been at war with John Donovan

Extracts from the ebook “John Donovan, Shell’s Nightmare” (now available on Amazon websites globally)

From page 16

Extract begins

It is fair to say that the first dozen years of the business relationship between Shell and Don Marketing was very successful for both parties. Not only in the UK but around the world. We enjoyed a mutually beneficial and trusting relationship.

In the two decades since 1993, the mutual admiration evaporated and the relationship became so acrimonious that The Times newspaper published a City Diary article in 2007 about Shell’s hostile relationship with my family.

Extract:

Since the 1990s, Royal Dutch Shell has been at war with a family who registered a website, royaldutchshellplc.com. The Donovan family, led by 90-year-old Burma veteran Alfred, perhaps quixotically want Shell to change its management. Shell has failed to shut down the site, which has attracted job applications and, allegedly, even a terrorist threat, all of which are dutifully passed on to the company. read more

OPL 245: WHY IS REPROBATE MALCOLM BRINDED STILL PRESIDENT OF THE ENERGY INSTITUTE?

EMAIL FROM BILL CAMPBELL RETIRED HSE GROUP AUDITOR SHELL INTERNATIONAL SENT TO SUE BEARD, HEAD OF PROFESSIONAL AFFAIRS, ENERGY INSTITUTE. PUBLISHED HERE BY JOHN DONOVAN  WITHOUT BILL’S PERMISSION. NO REPLY THUS FAR.

Dear Suzanne

Note that in relative terms the EI is recently formed.  Understand in your role as Head of Professional affairs you are interested in ethics, compliance with the law etc so it surprises me that you would appoint a serial lawbreaker Brinded as your President – but for the present could I simply ask in the public interest for clarification: read more

Unexplainable ascent of ethically flawed Malcolm Brinded

Malcolm Brinded – ethically challenged President of the Energy Institute and Chairman of the Shell Foundation. 

By John Donovan

I recently received an email asking how it is possible that the Energy Institute could have a crook as its president. A reference to Malcolm Brinded, alleged in the email to have a “history of quasi psychopathic behaviour towards hundreds of offshore workers put at risk for years to protect Brinded’s personal ambitions.”

Brinded was elected as President of the Energy Institute on 4 July 2017. Equally astonishing is the fact that Brinded also remains Chairman of the Shell Foundation. read more

LEADING THE WORLD IN PROMOTIONAL GAMES

The above bold claim, made in numerous whole page advertisements in trade magazines, was legitimate. To the best of my knowledge, no company before or since has devised such a wide range of innovative promotional games.

I authored articles about promotional games for magazines such as Marketing Week and have acted as an expert witness in court cases relating to promotional games.

We had business dealings with the major US TV networks. Following negotiations in New York and London with NBC Senior Vice President, Steve Sohmer, I signed an agreement for a joint NBC/Don Marketing project with Ray Timothy, President of NBC Television. Lars H Lenck, President of Don Marketing USA, a former Chevron analyst, was also a signatory to the contract. read more

Donovan family relationship with Shell

Extracts from the ebook “John Donovan, Shell’s Nightmare” (now available on Amazon websites globally)

From pages 12, 13 & 14

Extract begins

My families’ relationship with Shell stretches back nearly 60 years.

My father jointly owned a garage in the county of Essex, with new car showrooms and extensive workshop facilities. He held new car franchises for Standard-Triumph and later, for Chrysler.

My sisters (Lynne and Jessie) and I worked for him from the late 1950’s. Myself, initially on a part-time basis, from when I was a 12-year-old schoolboy.

We all worked as petrol pump attendants. There was no self-service in those days. Goodness knows how much lead we inhaled during those early years filling up countless vehicles of all kinds. read more

My Shell insider sources have received threats, including alleged death threats, as reported by The Irish Times in April 2011: Gardaí investigate alleged death threats to Corrib whistleblowers

The last message I received from one Sakhalin2 source advised that they had received a credible serious threat. I never heard from that particular insider again.

A press release issued by Shell UK in March 1995 provides some idea of the degree of acrimony and the wide scope of our campaigning activities. read more
