category national | crime and justice | news report author Thursday April 04, 2013 22:37author by RoyalDutchShellPlc.com Report this post to the editors

Bribes paid out

OSSL claim that their company was a supplier to Shell in respect of the Corrib Gas Project. They allege that acting on Shell’s instructions, OSSL has distributed bribes on Shell’s behalf to parties connected with the project, including the Irish police force (the Garda) who have been the subject of serious accusations of wrong doing by environmental activists protesting against the project. The main accusation being that the Garda has acted as an offshoot of Shell security.

SELF-EXPLANATORY EMAIL FROM JOHN DONOVAN TO LINDA SZYMANSKI, CHIEF ETHICS & COMPLIANCE OFFICER, ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC

From: John Donovan
Subject: OSSL Ireland
Date: 28 March 2013 13:42:04 GMT

Cc: michiel.brandjes@shell.com

Dear Ms Szymanski

I am writing to you in your capacity as Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer of Royal Dutch Dutch Plc.

In case you are not already aware, I want to formally bring to your attention allegations made by an Irish company OSSL against Shell EP Ireland.

OSSL claim that their company was a supplier to Shell in respect of the Corrib Gas Project.

They allege that acting on Shell’s instructions, OSSL has distributed bribes on Shell’s behalf to parties connected with the project, including the Irish police force (the Garda) who have been the subject of serious accusations of wrong doing by environmental activists protesting against the project. The main accusation being that the Garda has acted as an offshoot of Shell security.

OSSL allege that invoices have been falsified on Shell’s instructions to cover-up what has been going on.

This week, OSSL has provided what they claim is an authentic invoice to Shell dated 24 August 2012 amounting to over €35,000 for alcohol allegedly given as a corrupt payment to the Garda. Senior Garda officers are named on the invoice.

When looking at the header of the invoice it is strange to see that this includes a Hotmail address, does it not?

Well not really, right? It is a real small village and a really small company.

What would be interesting to confirm the validity of that invoice is to check it against shell's books if those amount appear there, then yeah right that would tend to confirm it ish.

If this is really the case that gardai took bribes, should it not be brought to the attention of their internal affair services?
