Shell must suspend operations in Syria

IKV Pax Christi believes that all cooperation with the regime in Syria is illegitimate and that Shell must suspend its operations immediately. In Syria it is impossible for Shell to ensure that it is not involved in human rights violations. Shell has no other option than to suspend all operations until violence against demonstrators has completely ended, says a statement issued by IKV Pax Christi.

Shell is a major player in the Syrian oil industry. Shell owns 20% of Syria’s largest oil producer Furat Petroleum Company, that sells all its oil to state-owned General Petroleum Company, that exports 39% of Syrian production and that largely supplies to the domestic market. The Syrian tanks shelling civilians are likely to run partly on fuel provided by Shell. The same goes for police cars and the vans of the security police that strike terror in the streets of Homs and Tall Kalakh. Shell has a license to operate from government and no more from Syrian society. read more

Shell accused over Syrian oil exports

Royal Dutch Shell has been accused of working “hand in glove” with Syria’s regime after the energy company chartered a tanker to export almost 600,000 barrels of the country’s oil. A spokesperson for Shell declined to confirm or deny the vessel’s arrival in Syria, saying only that the company does not comment on “commercial information”.

Hundreds of people have been killed since popular protests against the regime began in March. The army has responded to the unrest by opening fire on unarmed demonstrators in the country’s largest cities.

By continuing its commercial relationship with Syria despite the bloodshed, critics say that Shell is complicit in Mr Assad’s repression. “Shell continues to work hand in glove with the regime. The people of Syria rise up for freedom, but this company has placed itself firmly on the side of corrupt dictators,” said Lorenzo Paluello, a researcher for Platform. read more

ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC: OFFSPRING OF AN OFF-THE-SHELF COMPANY OF DUBIOUS ANTECEDENCE

By Alfred Donovan

As a result of proceedings Shell International brought against me in May 2005 via The World Intellectual Property Organization, we carried out a financial investigation of the setting up of Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

We discovered from Companies House documents that the company is the offspring of an off-the-shelf company – FORTHDEAL LIMITED – a company of dubious antecedence.

In 2005, Shell management was so grossly incompetent that it forgot to obtain registration of the royaldutchshellplc top level domain name as part of the process of setting up the unified company: Royal Dutch Shell plc. read more
