  • Threat against John Donovan by officer leading Garda Ombudsman investigation of Shell/Irish Police Corruption allegations – Mr Johan Groenewald. 
  • Warning by Mr Groenewald about honesty of OSSL before he has even announced the result of his impartial investigation
  • Denial by Mr Groenewald that he tore up OSSL statements
  • As a result of revelations in the extraordinary email correspondence below, some Irish citizens may have reservations about his competence, impartiality, judgement, and plain common-sense to lead such an investigation
  • Some may conclude that due to his disregard of evidence, he has destroyed the credibility of his findings before they have even been published.

I sent an email earlier this week to Johan Groenewald, the officer in charge of the Garda Ombudsman (GSOC) investigation into OSSL allegations of Irish police corruption sponsored by Shell, relating to the controversial Corrib Gas Project.

I did not anticipate any response because Mr Groenewald had indicated through OSSL that he did not want to receive any emails from me.

Against expectations,  he did respond and has since engaged in a flurry of email correspondence with me, the tone of which was initially constructive and polite, but deteriorated earlier today when he resorted to issuing a threat and then sent a parting email message, before blocking my emails so I could not reply. read more and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan.

However, remarkable related events continue to unfold. 

OSSL says that it purchased and distributed free booze at Christmas time to Irish police officers on behalf of Shell. As part of a cover-up, Shell issued a press statement several months ago (above) denying OSSL allegations.  read more and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan.
