Shell IT espionage and dirty tricks

The significance of a counter-measures team set up by Shell in March 2007 is now becoming clearer. We only became aware of it due to a Shell internal email dated 9 March 2007 released to us as a result of an application to Shell under the Data Protection Act.

Days later, on 21 March 2007, Shell initiated an IT project to “monitor internal e-mails from Shell servers globally to Donovan and is also monitoring web traffic to determine internal traffic to their website”. The relevant Shell internal email states: “There is history of several former employees taking internal laundry to Donovan also, internal e-mails have appeared on his website.”
