Statement by former Royal Dutch Shell executive John Johns: RDS Forensics has arrived!

At the request of John Johns we have today (11 June 2010) removed information previously printed below (published on 5 May 2010) that was copied from his Royal Dutch Shell Forensics Website.

That website is apparently no longer operational because of pornographic advertising appearing on it over which Mr Johns had no control.

Although initially profusely welcoming the free publicity we generated for his website, Mr Johns objected when I raised legitimate questions about him and his motives. Mr Johns has recently sent several legal notices threatening defamation proceedings and demanding the removal of his copyrighted material which appeared on this web page.

I have no intention of retracting my comments, which were justified. Indeed, I will shortly publish an article on this subject in the light of further evidence confirming that he has corresponded with me previously using aliases, including the pseudonym “Mr X”.  The strange behavior exhibited by Mr John Johns in correspondence does not qualify as being transparent as he falsely claims to be. Mr Johns is a hypocrite.

Brief incomplete summary of the content of the removed copyrighted material, which included a photograph of Mr John Johns.

Mr Johns welcomed visitors to his website.

He acknowledged the publicity had generated for his website.

He said that I had not checked out the membership information on his site and that he was going to ask me to publish a correction.

He said: “Lets be clear and transparent to help Mr Donovan and others.”  (I have added the bold print)

He then set out his background. Worked for Shell for 15 years; worked in finance management; worked at Shell New Zealand (as MIS manager); also as Finance & Planning Manager for Shell Aviation in the Far East. Says he was rated as being an “Outstanding” employee.

Suggested I should get help with my research.

Repeats claim to being transparent: “To also help Mr Donovan and other visitors we want to be fully transparent.”

Claimed to have cases active and pending against Shell.

Says he was Chairman of a Shell Audit committee.

Praises the courage of his New Zealand lawyer.

More puff about the values of RDS Forensics.

Solicits input and trust from from third parties.

More puff about honesty and integrity.

Comment by John Donovan

Previously we had nothing but a claimed name of John Johns associated with RDS Forensics. A Google search of the name John Johns linked to Shell or Royal Dutch Shell produced no results. Perhaps due to my comments, John Johns has today issued a press release revealing his claimed background. It appears, though it isn’t clear, that he may be in litigation with Shell and possibly seeking similar fact evidence? I did check the listed members when we first received a link to the site. None were listed. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
