Dear Mr. Donovan,

We are some of the Malaysian ex-employees who have been regularly following your website. We find it interesting and informative. We know that many of our ex-colleagues in Sarawak are also doing the same. As such, we feel it is a suitable place for us to share our thoughts and opinions on certain matters with our ex-colleagues. We will be sending an important letter which we hope you will kindly publish on your website as soon as we are no longer legally prohibited from commenting on the relevant matters.

In the mean time, we have a suggestion that you may wish to consider. Some of us do not have a broadband internet facility and it takes a long while for us to go through your huge website in order to locate some publications. In our case, we are most interested in happenings in Sarawak. Of course we are also following other events with great interest and learning from some of them such as the Rossport 5 case. Therefore, if it is not too difficult, could you locate everything on Sarawak under one grouping, e.g.:

We also wish to mention that having old values, we are quite uncomfortable with the joke on Sakhalin2 cost overrun which features Mr. Jeroen van der Veer. We feel it is perhaps a bit on the ‘dirty joke’ side and therefore distasteful.

Thank you and kind regards,
Mohamad Fuad Saar and others

Alfred Donovan has had business dealings with Shell stretching back almost 50 years. In the 1980’s & 90’s the sales promotion company he founded with his son, John (Don Marketing) created and supplied multimillion dollar national promotions for Shell on an international basis. He and his son probably hold the world record for suing Shell, having subsequently brought a series of court actions: five for breach of confidence or breach of contract, and two for libel. They have never lost a case against Shell. Details about the litigation are published on, the unique website owned by the Donovan’s. It contains the world’s largest collection of articles, news and reports focused on Royal Dutch Shell and its activities – astonishingly, over 6,000 web pages. Mr Donovan own and uses the registration to the dotcom domain name for Shell’s unified $200 billion (USD) company: Royal Dutch Shell Plc ( Shell made an unsuccessful attempt to seize it by instituting proceedings via the World Intellectual Property Organisation in May 2005. A WIPO panel gave a unanimous verdict in favour of Mr Donovan in August.
