Global Witness statement on Royal Dutch Shell referring a former executive to the Dutch authorities

"Today marks a huge blow for Shell. After years of saying that there is no place for bribery or corruption in their company, they have finally admitted that one of their most senior executives may have taken kickbacks in return for an oil deal," said Barnaby Pace, Anti-Corruption Campaigner at Global Witness.

"As Peter Robinson along with three other former Shell execs face criminal charges in Milan for another corrupt deal, it looks like Shell is starting to crack".
