Royal Dutch Shell terrorist tactics against Malaysian whistleblower

“For his audacity in raising the reserves issue, Dr Huong was demoted, appointed as an asset manager with responsibility for helicopter flights.

Corruption in Malaysia


Dear Sir,

I had read through your website

I wish to highlight a problem here in Sungai Petani City , Kedah, Malaysia . It is regarding the largest (main) army ammunition depot and housing of explosive materials located in the city Sungai Petani Kedah , Malaysia. The federal government is ignoring a time bomb waiting to explode,  the largest army ammunition depot placed beside (2 Major Housing Areas) Taman Melor , Taman Orkid, 2 Schools and lands belonging to the general public with an estimated population of 5000 to 7000 in the said 2 Housing Areas areas. If the army ammunition depot explodes the killing zone will be 1 – 3 kilometers (maybe even more), it will also wipe out the Sungai Petani town as well. read more
