We receive insider information about Shell from a variety of sources. From disgruntled Shell employees; from Shell itself in response to Subject Access Requests; from information, Shell has sent to us by accident and from searching and retrieving documents from court files. We have, for example, published a leaked internal email from an incoming Chief Executive Officer of Royal Dutch Shell Plc on the same day he sent it, resulting in another huge embarrassment for Shell.
As indicated above, we receive insider information about Shell from a number of different sources.
The first is from Shell itself.
Shell has supplied Shell internal documents and internal emails directly to me in compliance with a series of SAR applications.
The internal documents revealed that Shell secretly set up a counter-measures team and mounted a global spying operation in a determined, but unsuccessful bid to stop the flow of Shell insider information to me.
Another source is from disgruntled Shell employees who have supplied insider information and Shell internal documents and internal emails.
