The Borneo Post: Shell vs Dr John Huong trial adjourned to Nov 15

Posted 23 June 2005

The trial of Shell vs Dr John Huong has been adjourned to Nov 14,15,16,17 and 18.

The two-day preliminary hearing of the case saw only one witness taking the stand – Max Prins, a witness for Shell.

Dr Huong, an ex-Shell employee, is suing the company, alleging that he was unfairly dismissed. After a domestic inquiry was conducted by the company, it allegedly found the claimant to have been absent from meetings with his superior and not performing his work as instructed by his superior. The meeting was fixed by the claimant’s superior, Max Prins, every Friday morning from 7.30am to 8am.

Huong, a geologist by qualification, had worked with Shell for almost 30 years before his dismissal on March 28, 2003.

The case was heard in the Industrial Court with K Muniandy as the presiding Judge. The lawyer for Shell is Sim Hui Chuaog.
