Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
At the end of 2017, the Dutch ambassador to Nigeria leaked confidential information about a major corruption investigation into Shell to the oil corporation. NRC daily writes this based on an integrity investigation into Robert Petri. He was prematurely replaced as ambassador to the Nigerian capital Abuja in early 2019.
A criminal investigation into Shell was underway at the end of 2017 because the oil company, along with the Italian oil corporation Eni, is said to have used nearly $ 1 billion in kickbacks for developing a big Nigerian oil field. Just before the FIOD Dutch tax investigative service left for Nigeria to gather information about the case, the ambassador and his wife visited the local Shell CEO. Petri is said to have admitted that he has ‘revealed’ the arrival of FIOD.
The ministry only intervened after two consecutive inspections: an integrity investigation into Petri, at the end of 2018, and subsequently a specially inserted investigation into the working climate at the embassy, at the beginning of 2019.
The initial investigation was prompted by a complaint about the ambassador’s integrity. It was about a trip he made with his wife in May 2018 on an aeroplane of a Nigerian gas company partly owned by Shell.
The two internal investigations revealed, eg, a sick working atmosphere at the embassy.
