According to an Irish Independent article, the former Irish Justice Minister, Alan Shatter, who corresponded with me in relation to the OSSL corruption allegations against Shell and the Irish Police, has launched a blistering attack on the bosses of the watchdog Garda Ombudsman service (GSOC).  

The GSOC is the hopelessly incompetent outfit responsible for a so-called “investigation” of the OSSL allegations. In fact, they never even approached a key witness, Mr Marc Fitzgibbon, a senior Dublin lawyer. He was personally present during a series of meetings with top people at Shell, when OSSL demanded and Shell agreed to pay OSSL for  goods and services used to bribe various parties on behalf of Shell, including senior Irish cops. 

Displayed above is part of the content of an email sent earlier today by OSSL to the new Irish Justice Minister, Frances Fitzgerald. 

If this is all unfounded lies, why hasn’t Shell taken legal action to prevent publication of such damaging allegations? The company has a legal army of several hundred litigators backed by unlimited financial resources. Why the reticence to protect Shell’s reputation? Draw your own conclusions.
