A few days ago I sent an email to Mr. Alan Shatter TD, the Irish Minister responsible for Justice & Equality.


I have now received an acknowledgement on his behalf, but no indication yet of what steps, if any, are being taken to investigate.

The corruption allegations made by OSSL, a supplier to Shell E&P Ireland, are so serious, alleged to involve *hundreds of Garda police officers, that the Irish government will have to take action to establish whether the allegations are true or false.

*”THREE HUNDRED COPS” is an extract from an email allegedly sent by OSSL to senior people at Shell including Michael Crothers and to Detective Chief Superintendent John Gilligan of the Garda (the Irish Police) on 27 March 2013, concerning alleged alcohol deliveries to the Garda allegedly made by OSSL on behalf of Shell E&P Ireland.

Why has Shell or the Garda not stepped forward to deny the allegations that have been in the public domain since September 2012?

All seems crazy to me.

UPDATE: Received this email from OSSL…

Dear Mr Donovan

It has been brought to my attention that you have just published information regarding

In the interest of accuracy on this matter the the non payment of this delivery of alcohol from SHELL to the IRISH POLICE remained a confidential matter between SHELL and OSSL at SHELLS insistence until FEBRUARY 2011 when OSSL sought the assistance of the IRISH POLICE in writing ( copy available ) to obtain payment .
