Shell guilty of contempt

category mayo | environment | news report author Monday September 07, 2009 22:17author by fired_pet Report this post to the editors

Company may be sent for psychaitric report

SHell was found in contempt of a District Court order last week. The company was found by the judge to have entered common land in Rossport despite having been prohibited from doing so by a 2007 court order. Presumably the judge, when she returns to sentence the company next week, will treat them as harshly as she has treated opponents of the project to install the experimental gas pipeline in North West Mayo.

Previously court sittings heard evidence that Shell had applied to An Bord Pleanála for a compulsory acquisition order for lands under the Gas Act 1976. This is one of the first times a private company has used compulsory acquisition law in Ireland to advance their own profits.

In advance of the compulsory acquisition, Shell had claimed that inspections of the lands were required. But back in November 2007 the court granted an order prohibiting Shell from entering the commonage until all the provisions of the Gas Act were complied with.

At a court sitting in Ballina last week, the brave and impartial Judge said the court order was specific in its terms that Shell was prohibited from entering on to common lands at Rossport until the provisions of the gas act was complied with. Nevertheless, Shell contractors had entered the lands.

The matter has been adjourned for sentencing to Westport District Court on September 17th. No doubt the Irish justice system will be as strict with the giant multi national company as it with protesters who oppose its plans.

Royal Dutch Shell saved Hitler and the Nazi Party


... Further research has revealed evidence that a huge injection of Royal Dutch Shell funds by Sir Henri, saved the Nazi Party from collapse and in so doing, indirectly caused millions of deaths in World War II.

I have provided extensive verification evidence from reputable independent sources of the Royal Dutch Shell connection with Hitler and the Nazi. This includes evidence of a four-day meeting between Sir Henri and Adolf Hitler at his Mountain top retreat, The Eagles Nest in Berchtesgaden.

Declassified US intelligence records show Royal Dutch Shell was viewed as “a Nazi collaborator that used Hitler’s slave laborers”.

My confidence in the good judge is not strengthened by observing what her husband has been up to -- using scientific fraud (and his culpable ignorance) to suppress a public information report.

Today in Westport District Court was supposed to see the sentencing of Shell for the contempt of court charge that they were found guilty of on the 4th September. However Shell sought to have the case referred to the High court to have Judge Devins explain how she found them guilty of the contempt of court charge. Basically Shell are claiming that Judge Devins has erred in law in her decision (however they failed to specify how they think she has erred). Shell quoted from a law enacted in 1857 in order to seek to have the case referred to the High Court.

Judge Devins adjourned the case to October 8th, when she will decide whether the case will be sent to the High Court.

One guess as to why Shell sought this obscure course of action is that they are trying to delay the sentencing until after An Bord Pleanala decide on the planning application, in which the illegal information obtained on Rossport Commonage was used.
