|Jeroen-van-der-Veer.com Two faces of Shell: Royal Dutch Shell Plc Chief Executive Officer, Jeroen van der Veer and the owner of RoyalDutchShellplc.com: Alfred Donovan|
The Wall Street Journal sketch above is reproduced in accordance with our "Fair Use Notice" Jeroen is the Chief Executive Officer of Royal Dutch Shell Plc Jeroen is the boss of bosses of the world's second largest oil company having a market value of $235 BILLION: Royal Dutch Shell Plc MEMORY LOSS: Jeroen was faced with a potential 20 year jail sentence after signing accounts that massively overstated oil and gas reserves. Jeroen lost a third of Shell's hydrocarbon reserves during five restatements COURT PROBLEMS: A US Federal Judge gave his consent in August 2005 for a securities fraud case to proceed against Jeroen in respect of the scandals which has put put Shell's reputation in terms of global odium on par with the likes of Enron. PENSION STABILITY: Jeroen has agreed to pay $90 million dollars to settle a pension fund claim from Shell's USA employees arising from the reserves scandal. A High Court Judge has found that Shell "unlawfully" misappropriated funds belonging to its Malaysian employees OVERSPENDING:: Jeroen has admitted to being "staggered" at the $10 BILLION DOLLAR cost overrun at the delayed Sakhalin-2 project in Russia. He seems to have forgotten that he bears ultimate responsibility for this latest debacle FORCES AT JEROEN'S DISPOSAL: In the ongoing Shell disputes with the Donovan's, including a domain name battle in 2005, Jeroen has at his disposal over 119,000 Shell employees, undercover agents and an army of lawyers LANGUAGE SKILLS: Jeroen speaks a number of languages including a strange lingo full of unintelligible jargon. Perhaps this is the mythical language known as double-dutch? PERSONALITY: Jeroen has been described in a ShellNews.net article as having all of the charisma of a piece of wet lettuce ROYAL CONNECTIONS: Jeroen apparently has delusions of grandeur - perhaps arising from the "Royal" prefix to the Royal Dutch Shell name. His fleet of four luxury executive jets which each cost about £19.5m, are fitted with cocktail bars, thick carpets and hi-fi systems. Apparently its nothing but the best for this high flying Dutchman and alleged fraudster IMPORTANCE OF ONLINE REPUTATION: In May 2006, it was reported that Shell is appointing a digital agency with "experience in turning around corporate reputations" "Shell seeks agency for online makeover" Jeroen is going to need all the help he can get!
The Wall Street Journal sketch above is reproduced in accordance with our "Fair Use Notice" Alfred is an 90 year old disgruntled former Shell marketing consultant (co-owner of this website) Alfred owns the top level domain name RoyalDutchShellplc.com which Shell unsuccessfully tried to seize in 2005 MEMORY LOSS: Alfred lost his walking stick while out shopping. However some traumatic memories never fade: The Independent: Lies, cover-ups, fat cats and an oil giant in crisis; Evening Standard: Shell 'has lied for 10 years' COURT PROBLEMS: Alfred has received a fine for driving at 37 miles per hour within a 30 miles per hour speed limit. Alfred would ideally like to take Shell directors to court for all of the threats made against him and his son over the years at their behest and directly by a Shell Chairman PENSION STABILITY: Alfred has never had to sue the British Army in respect of his war disability pension, even though it has been coughing up for it longer than it probably anticipated. Unlike Shell the Army has a caring attitude and does not censor former employees OVERSPENDING: Alfred decided to go wild and invest in some Viagra but then forgot why he wanted it. He has decided to postpone plans to purchase a fleet of of luxury jets after scandal ridden Shell has cornered the market FORCES AT ALFRED'S DISPOSAL: Alfred has no butler, no chauffeur, no spies, no lawyers, no private jets and no employees - just his son John - plus this low cost global platform on which to exercise his rights to freedom of expression LANGUAGE SKILLS: At his age Alfred has to collect his thoughts before he says anything. He is however still capable of writing a lucid blunt article about Royal Dutch Shell PERSONALITY: Alfred has been described as a "hard nut to crack". Jeroen would probably agree with one word of that description ROYAL CONNECTIONS: In 1999 Alfred warned Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands about a "a culture of deception and cover-up deeply ingrained at the highest levels of Shell”. Unfortunately Queen Beatrix ignored his warnings. According to a Sunday Times article in 2004 the Dutch royal family lost £250,000 million on Shell shares as a result of the reserves scandal SHELL TESTIMONIAL: For over a decade, Alfred has been acclaimed by Shell management for his communication skills, including innovative utilisation of the Internet. Please read the astonishing testimonial in 1995 in recognition of Alfred's unrivalled expertise in goading Shell
Mr Jorma Ollila is the Chairman of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. He took up his non-executive position on 1st June 2006. This Wall Street journal sketch is reproduced in accordance with the "Fair Use Notice" below *This is not the website of Royal Dutch Shell Group nor is it endorsed by them, or affiliated with them in any way. Shell's legal statement regarding this site is posted below. If you wish to visit the Shell portal website without being exposed to over 12,000 web pages of news and information about Shell, including revelations, leaked Shell internal documents, you are only one click away: Click here for the Royal Dutch Shell Plc portal site shell.com Shell's website presents the activities of the World's No 2 oil and gas giant employing all the hype and spin that this $223 BILLION dollar multinational can buy. ShellNews.net provides the antidote in a "fair and balanced" way using the Fox News model. This is a non-commercial site: no subscription charges and no paid advertising.
LEGAL STATEMENT BY THE ROYAL DUTCH SHELL GROUP REGARDING THIS WEBSITE: I, Alfred Donovan, would like to remind Shell lawyers that the "group" has placed on record its acknowledgement of my freedom to air my opinions about Shell on ShellNews.net. I did of course already have rights under various freedom of expression conventions and declarations but its nice to know that Shell, one of the multinational rulers of our planet, recognises this fact. The Royal Dutch Shell Group made the following unusual statement in a legal document in regards to this website: - "The... Group... have been aware of the site since the beginning and whilst they would not endorse or agree with many of the comments made by the Respondent on the website, they have taken the view that the Respondent is entitled to express his opinions and to use the Internet as a medium for doing so." This statement drafted by Shell lawyers and authorised by the "Group", amounts to tacit acceptance/recognition of this website by Shell. It was submitted to The World Intellectual Property Organisation in May 2005 by Shell International Petroleum Company Limited on behalf of the Royal Dutch Shell Group in WIPO proceedings against me, Alfred Donovan, as the "Respondent" (owner) of the three domain names at the top of this web page, including www.royaldutchshellplc.com. (In August 2005, a three person independent panel of Internet domain name lawyers/experts unanimously rejected Shell's claim.)
It remains a mystery why Shell has taken an entirely different view regarding the fundamental human right to freedom of expression in respect of the former Shell geologist Dr John Huong (left), the well-known Shell reserves whistleblower, in relation to alleged defamatory postings under his name on our websites. EIGHT companies within the Royal Dutch Shell Group collectively obtained a High Court Injunction to silence him. That Injunction remains in force. They have subsequently threatened him with imprisonment. The next High Court hearing is due on 8 February 2007. It will hear an application by the EIGHT Shell companies in question for Alfred Donovan, 90 years old in April 2007, to be cross-examined in the Malaysian High Court in relation to the case.
