Update on Shell Corrib Gas Controversy

From the Shell to Sea Campaign front line…

Opposition to the Corrib Gas Project in Ireland continues…

The 2006 policy of “no arrest” has been replaced with a policy of arrest, charge and get campaigners in jail out of the way. The abuse of the court system has been rampant with local retired teacher Maura Harrington jailed 4 times this year for alleged incidents during protest against the project. http://www.indymedia.ie/article/94011

Niall Harnett has also been targeted and jailed for alleged obstruction and assault on a Garda – despite video evidence shown in court which suggests otherwise. http://www.indymedia.ie/article/93525 read more

Royal Dutch Shell Withdrawing from Downstream?

ROYAL DUTCH SHELL WITHDRAWAL FROM GREECE

From a royaldutchshellplc.com contributor…

Responding to the comment that RDS is withdrawing from downstream, as evidenced by the withdrawal from Greece.

The Greece assets were acquired in 2000 in a swap with parts of the UK portfolio such as a terminal and unwanted (‘tail’) stations, the real driver for the deal was a local management desire for increased scale and to get a ‘seat at the table’ in the then SEOP organisation. the internal justification process – 501/502 as it was then known – was flawed in that the economics of the deal were questionable and the proposals put forward did not add up properly. There was a significant mistake in the analysis which omitted the actual opportunity cost of losing the UK assets. read more

BAE Systems whistleblower accuses Shell & BP of money laundering Al-Yamamah proceeds

IDscan-finalUPDATED DECEMBER 2010

A BAE Systems insider from the AL-Yamamah and AL-Salam Projects in Saudi Arabia, is supplying internal BAE, Saudi, and UK MOD documents to the US Department of Justice (DoJ) which is carrying out an investigation into alleged corruption.

The samples we have seen include correspondence between high ranking officers in the British and Saudi military responsible for administering the Al-Yamamah oil-for-arms barter deal.

One example is a letter marked”SECRET” from Brigadier General Prince Turki Bin Nasser Bin Addul Aziz, Royal Saudi Air Force Al-Yamamah Project Officer, to an MOD Air Marshal within Project Al-Yamamah.

Extract from a Guardian newspaper article “Prince Turki: The man with everything“:

“The man who allegedly received most from BAE’s £60m slush fund, Turki bin Nasser, is a rich man. He has nearly 200 classic cars, a £20m private Boeing business jet, a large yacht called the Sarah, a sumptuous mansion in Beverly Hills and houses in Barcelona, Riyadh, Dharan and London. His London home is in Sussex Square, near Hyde Park.” read more
