Hakluyt – the corporate investigations spy firm linked to Shell

In an article published on 8 August by the Mail on Sunday, the UK company Hakluyt & Company Limited is described as a “corporate investigations spy firm“.

Hakluyt, founded and heavily populated by former MI6 officers, has been closely associated with its client Shell, at one point sharing common directors and major shareholders.

Sir William Purves and the late Sir Peter Holmes, a former Group Chairman of Royal Dutch Shell Group, were the ultimate spymasters at Hakluyt when it carried out undercover work on behalf of Shell in many Countries.

Sir William was Chairman of Hakluyt & Company Limited and Sir Peter, President of the so called oversight organisation, The Hakluyt Foundation.

Hakluyt is viewed by many Members of Parliament as the commercial arm of MI6.
