PGS ASA, Watson Farley & Williams and Duensing Kippen Global Corruption: Racketeering and Defamation Defined

Norway: Don’t Mess with TEXAS!

Texans’ don’t need to Import Corruption.

Corporate Corruption is a Substantial Cost for Law Abiding Businesses and Customers. Corporate Corruption Pollutes the Global Market Place.

PGS ASA has been determined to decieve the upstream oil and gas industry. PGS ASAs UK affiliate, PGS Exploration UK Limited, sponsored a US citizen and Thai-USA family on a work visa under contract governed by the laws of England. PGS ASA defamed and defrauded the USA citizen whistleblower, illegally terminated SDK from employment and blacklisted him through transferring (US Federal mail/wire fraud) defamatory forged documents to Houston, Texas. SDK has published legally protected public disclosure presenting evidence of PGS ASA crimes. PGS ASA has never acted on contractual Confidentiality / non-disparagement clauses to legally rectify the situation. PGS ASA has avoided their legal obligations under the laws of England (and Norway) to protect the company reputation. PGS ASA has continued to defame and defraud the whistleblower, SDK, and the oil and gas industry through misrepresenting whistleblowing as defamation. SDK PUBLISHES THE TRUTH! PGS ASA extorted SDK through illegally using the Thailand criminal justice system and misrepresenting protected disclosure as criminal defamation. PGS ASA HAS NEVER LEGALLY PROVED DEFAMATION. PGS ASA is defrauding the Thailand courts. PGS compelled the signing of a contract in Thailand to silence SDK. PGS ASA has harassed and filed false criminal charges in Thailand against SDK. I am tired of the BULLSHIT!
PGS ASA: Bring your false THAILAND claims to TEXAS!
FBI: PLEASE INVESTIGATE NORWEGIAN CORPORATE ORGANIZED CRIME.
Chairman Qvam, et al.:
The PGS board of directors and several senior managers are corrupt and have behaved immorally and criminally to the detriment of the enterprise and its stakeholders.
PGS board of directors and several senior managers, including compliance officers, need to be investigated thoroughly by a third-party for corruption and fraud.
(Published online 18 June 2017 and referenced with 9 September 2018 (more than 1-year after publication is not actionable, per UK Limitation Act 1980) Criminal Defamation claim filed in Thailand by PGS ASA UK Subsidiary)

PGS ASA investors who are not entirely pleased with the company performance since 2013 (at least) should DEMAND a thorough police investigation of the PGS ASA board of directors. Their alleged actions warrant termination, criminal prosecution and a class action suit for damages. The board of directors corruption revealed by whistleblower SDK has damaged PGS ASA market value substantially.

Walter Qvam is the PGS ASA Chairman of the Board of Directors. I published Open Letter to Petroleum Geo-Services ASA Board of Directors (18-Jun-2017). SDK never received any response. In September 2018, more than the one-year allowed by the UK Limitation Act 1980 to file a defamation claim, PGS ASA hired a Thailand legal firm Duensing – Kippen (Tippaya Moonmanee & Olaf Duensing) delivered a criminal defamation claim to an address in Thailand where SDK resided. However, SDK was not at the address when the claim was delivered there. The claim referenced passages from the Open Letter within the claim written in the Thai language. Why didn’t the PGS ASA Board of Directors respond to the letter? And why did the Board of Directors believe a good response was to translate passages into the Thai language? Does this really seem like the best way to solve a problem?
PGS ASA has used Search Engine Manipulation to Suppress Negative Legally Protected Public Disclosure – Whistleblowing – and Misinform Investors and Stakeholders. PGS ASA has never actually stated what specifically is untrue within SDKs publications. PGS ASA has been requested multiple times to explain a 25 October 2013 Memo that was used to support my termination settlement contract. The Memo is alleged to be a defamatory forged document referencing documents and events which do not exist. It was used to illegally terminate a foreign worker whistleblower fraudulently on false pretenses. PGS ASA, Watson Farley & Williams, and LZW Solicitors conspired to utter this forgery as well as withhold medical care from SDK to advance their fraudulent termination settlement contract.

The legal agreements between PGS ASAs UK affiliate, PGS Exploration UK Limited and SDK are governed by the laws of England. The Confidentiality terms and conditions prohibiting parties from disparaging one another were included within the original employment contract signed in 2010 as well as the termination settlement agreement/contract signed 5 December 2013. The legal bar for disparagement is much lower than defamation. Yet, PGS ASA never chose to litigate on contractual breaches governed by the laws of England? In April 2018, PGS Exploration UK Limited Secretary, Carl Richards, hired Thai legal firm Duensing Kippen to file criminal defamation charges while the foreign worker (USA citizen), victim of crimes and whistleblower resided in Thailand. How is this legal and not a breach in the original terms and conditions of the contracts governed by the laws of England? Why is this not fiduciary negligence for the Secretary of a English company not to act on breaches in the legal terms and conditions of a signed legal instrument? There can be no defamation without disparagement. Further, under English law, defamation is not a crime. The whistleblower and crime victim regarded the threats from Carl Richards and Duensing Kippen lawyer Tippaya Moonmanee to be extortion / blackmail. Further, how can an agent of a company governed by the laws of England give legal authority to a (foreign) lawyer to bypass legal agreements that they are bound to in their resident country. PGS ASA does not list any subsidiaries in Thailand.

PGS ASA defamed and defrauded SDK and the LinkedIn community through their pathological lies. PGS ASA are clearly aware of my social media whistle blowing. However, PGS ASA do not invoke the terms and conditions of contracts which prohibit disparagement. Instead, PGS ASA simply remove/delete truthful content by claiming it is “defamatory” to LinkedIn. LinkedIn restricts me for publishing protected public disclosure because PGS ASA lies to LinkedIn. PGS ASA is able to avoid the courts of England which govern our contracts. PGS ASA employees are rewarded for violating the PGS Code of Conduct and PGS Core Values. This essentially is PGS ASA bribing personnel to participate in the fraud and defamation of a whistleblower and continue to misinform the oil and gas industry making it less safe. PGS ASA executives pay and promote personnel to lie for the corrupt and narcissistic PGS board of directors and executives. The Compliance Team and Audit Team criminals are promoted to protect criminals on the board of directors and inside the Norwegian government. Norway has a dysfunctional corporate governance that lies to the global market. PGS ASA needs to be investigated along with connections to corruption in Telenor and Equinor!

THE REASON THAT PGS ASA USED (ILLEGALLY) THE THAI CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM WAS TO DESTROY EVIDENCE AND AVOID THE COURTS OF ENGLAND!

PGS ASA and SDK Contracts are still Active. Whistleblower SDK believes that the contract signed 13 December 2013 is a fraudulent instrument supported by defamatory forged documents which was executed to illegally terminate a foreign worker whistleblower. PGS ASA refuses to follow their own policy and conduct a thorough investigation because the PGS ASA board of directors are directly implicated in the alleged fraud and graft to harm the whistleblower and his family.
The legal relationship between SDK and PGS ASA is governed by the laws of England. Under English law, defamation is not a crime but a tort. PGS ASA has thwarted English and Norwegian law and pursued criminal defamation charges in Thailand. The whistleblower believes these actions are illegal (fraud, blackmail, etc.) and intended to pervert the course of justice and destroy publicly published evidence of PGS ASA board of directors crimes.

PGS ASA continue their offenses against a Whistlebblower

The corrupt PGS ASA board of directors continue to promote executive management that support the illegal actions against whistleblowers and shield those with fiduciary responsibility to PGS ASA from any and all accountability for corrupt actions.

SDK had stated within several publications that he was a whistleblower and therefore his content was legal and protected under the terms and conditions of the Confidentiality clauses both in the original employment contract and the 5 December 2013 termination settlement agreement / contract. In fact, the intent of these public disclosures was to force PGS ASA to act on the terms and conditions of their contracts. The main topic of the public disclosures was that PGS ASA is uttering defamatory forged documents as SDK personal data. This fraudulent data was illegally used to support a termination settlement contract under false pretenses to the detriment of a whistleblower who had revealed several compliance and legal breaches through SDKs submission of a workplace grievance, 20 September 2013. The law providing legal protection for whistleblowers which is referenced within both the terms and conditions of these contracts is the UK Public Interests Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA). I do not believe that litigation initiated on behalf of an agent of / or an English company has the authority to take away that legal right. An English company actions cannot be above the laws of England. Therefore, I have always regarded the PGS ASA subsidized litigation in Thailand against a whistleblower as illegal. The legal and contractual obligation of PGS ASA UK is to investigate whistleblowing claims and not to retaliate against the whistleblower, SDK. Retalitation against whistleblowers is illegal.

The Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) Ambush Meeting and the Definition of Fraud (24-May-2016)
Watson Farley & Williams’ Rhodri Thomas and Neeta Aulak have been accused by whistleblower and crime victim SDK of participating in the confidence fraud and perverting the course of justice through their uttering of defamatory forged documents used to illegally terminate and blacklist a whistleblower.
LZW Solicitors Philip Landau and Holly Rushton have been accused by whistleblower and crime victim SDK of participating in the confidence fraud and perverting the course of justice through their uttering of defamatory forged documents used to illegally terminate and blacklist a whistleblower. Landau and Rushton formally represented SDK but acted as double agents. SDK believes Landau and Rushton were bribed by PGS ASA / Watson Farley & Williams to work against the interests of their client, SDK. Email evidence has been published which supports these allegations.

SDK believes that his original whistleblowing claim was obstructed through a confidence fraud. PGS ASA, represented by the UK affiliate of firm Watson Farley & Williams and SDK legal counsel, Landau, Zeffert and Weir Solicitors (LZW) [now Landau Law] who acted as a double-agent, participated in a confidence fraud where uttered forged defamatory documents were created and / or processed to support an illegal termination contract. SDK has alleged and published online evidence that supports claims that PGS ASA bribed all of the lawyers involved with negotiating the illegal settlement contract which obstructed and deprived SDK his legal rights under English law and contract to file and process through the steps a workplace grievance. The workplace grievance submitted by SDK met the standard of whistleblowing defined by PIDA. These illegal actions facilitated the illegal termination of employment of a foreign worker whistleblower. PGS ASA processed the forged and defamatory content with the sinister and criminal intention to blacklist their victim of crimes from future employment in the geophysical exploration industry. The corrupt board of directors participated in this fraud of the marine seismic industry. Their illegal retaliation of a whistleblower was carried out to preserve a ficticious principled company reputation which cared for the health and safety concerns of its workers. Following this confidence fraud, PGS ASA publicly announced their membership in the UN Global Compact (23 December 2013) which admonishes every and all actions which PGS ASA had just participated in! PGS ASA even had the audacity to feature one of the main criminals in their confidence fraud, Simon Cather, Marine Contract Africa Regional President, as their anti-corruption role model within the PGS ASA 2013 Responsibility Report! This punctuates PGS ASAs disrespect for customers and shareholders through publishing known falsehoods intended to entice investment and confidence in PGS ASA. PGS ASA did not only defraud and defame a whistleblower, but defrauded the entire marine seismic industry. PGS ASA and Watson Farley & Williams’ NOT invoking the Confidentiality Clauses in the Contracts that they formed demonstrates either a reckless disregard for the PGS ASA reputation that they have a fiduciary responsility to protect or active participation in crimes against a whistleblower. Thus, any damages to PGS ASA reputation is in fact in either case the fault of the PGS ASA board of directors.

Why did PGS ASA wait until my blog post articles became defamatory and not simply disparaging? My initial post was on LinkedIn Pulse 3 July 2015.

My Philip Landau and Watson, Farley & Williams (WFW) London Solicitors Testimonial ( 8 November 2016 updated 9 April 2017 )

No One Had ever Complained to me Directly Regarding Online Publications Prior to 26 March 2018

A person purporting to be PGS Exploration UK Limited company secretary, Carl Richards, first threatened legal action as a private person from an unverified personal e-mail account. Had my content been in breach of any legal agreements, Carl Richards on behalf of PGS Exploration UK Limited should have referenced the signed legal agreements governed by the laws of England and not litigation in Thailand. “Carl Richards” who sent this e-mail never verified his identity nor answered a plethorad of legal questions. “Carl Richards” was asking for the removal of posted articles with his name mentioned only. Whistleblowing articles had been posted since 3 July 2015. Under the UK Limitation Act 1980, the applicable limitation for defamation is one year from the date of accrual of the claim, which in libel claims accrued at the time of publication. This would mean no action could be made on my publications predating March 2017. Further, PGS ASA had never fulfilled their fiduciary obligation to investigate my whistleblowing claims. PGS ASA compliance was contacted multiple times from April – September 2016 (these communications have also been posted) and provided content and links to content to reference for comment. PGS ASA never even commented on any content. I do not believe that Carl Richards could legally launch a claim divorced from his legal position with PGS Exploration UK Limited. PGS ASA, as usual, never answered any of these questions.

In September 2018, PGS ASA, delivered “Legal Claims” to SDK in Thailand. PGS ASA had never commented or reached out to SDK about his publications prior to delivering “criminal defamation” charges through through legal firm Duensing Kippen. Duensing Kippen lawyer Tippaya Moonmanee had never stated she was representing PGS ASA prior to this time. In fact, Carl Richards had been explicit in the fact that he was prosecuting his case apart from PGS ASA as an individual. Two criminal complaints were delivered to the address where I was residing in Thailand just after I had departed. I was not there to receive these threatening “Legal Notices” which were written in the Thai language. The summons’ were also written and e-mailed to SDK in the Thai language to SDK (or his relatives) in Thailand. Neither Carl Richards not PGS ASA had ever specifically identified defamatory content. PGS ASA wanted all SDK publications to be removed and refer to all content published on private site nopgs.com erroneously as “defamatory.” I considered this global misrepresentation of my legal and protected public disclosure (under English law) to be fraudulent.

Lawyer Tippaya Monmanee with Thailand legal firm Duensing Kippen contacted me by e-mail in May 2018 threatening legal action on behalf of Carl Richards. At this point, PGS ASA had never answered several important questions. However, as I was residing in Thailand at the time, I had to take these e-mails seriously. I did not then, and do not now, regard the litigation initiated in Thailand as legal. Defamation implies a false statement. I had taken care not to write known falsehoods and also supplemented my allegations with evidence (email and other time-tagged records). From April – September 2016, SDK sent several emails with content or links to my legally protected public disclosure to PGS ASA Compliance Hotline. PGS ASA never acknowledged nor investigated my evidence supplemented accusations of criminal and non-compliant acts by parties who processed the 20 September 2013 grievance / whistleblowing document. PGS ASA and Carl Richards’ objective was to force the removal / de-publication of evidence of PGA ASA board of directors and executive non-compliant and criminal acts. The new litigation is sponsored only by PGS ASA. Carl Richards, who initiated the sham litigation, has dropped out of site and is not included in the more recent “Legal Notices” which falsely claim my legal and protected public disclosure under English law is “criminal defamation” in Thailand.

I believe that PGS ASA, Watson Farley & Williams, Duensing Kippen, and Carl Richards are defrauding the Thai criminal justice system, the global geophysical industry, PGS ASA investors and stakeholders, and of course SDK through their vexatious litigation in Thailand against SDK. Only criminal morons would need to translate content published in English into Thai to prove defamation! Shareholders and investors must demand a thorough criminal investigation.

PGS ASA is actively continuing their misinformation campaign through labeling SDK published content as “defamatory” and not sincere legally protected public disclosure. PGS ASA continue to their defamation and defrauding of a foreign worker whistleblower. PGS ASA is able to promote personnel (bribe) to protect the false narrative and the PGS ASA board of directors from explanation and accountability. PGS ASA board of directors and executives are knowingly misrepresenting SDK personal data that they process as legal and accurate even though the forged documents do not bare the signature of the data subject and contradict facts contained within e-mail documents. SDK personal data being processed by PGS ASA does not meet the most basic legal standard or best practices. Norway’s government has been anemic in their actions to investigate whistleblower claims and protect the economic interests of PGS ASA investors. It seems that the Norwegian government sponsors, protects and promotes corrupt corporate executives in order to preserve Norway’s false reputation as a much lower corruption country to entice business.

Duensing Kippen lawyers Olaf Duensing and Tippaya Moonmanee directly participated in the alleged confidence fraud, extortion and blackmail of a whistleblower.
SDK wants PGS ASA to confirm which content it has processed. The UK Limitation Act 2010 does not allow claims of defamation for publications which have been in the public domain over one-year.
PGS ASA, through PGS UK Head of Legal, John Francas, does not specify which published content has been processed by PGS ASA. John Francas / PGS ASA are misrepresenting in their SAR response. PGS ASA had been provided with content and / or links to legally protected public disclosures from April – September 2016. Included with these was another SAR in 2016. Copies of these emails were provided to PGS ASA DPO, Daphne Bjerke, PGS ASA / John Francas do not mention how the 2016 emails sent to PGS ASA compliance was processed.
In July 2018, PGS ASA was still claiming the validity of the 5 December 2013 settlement agreement governed by the laws of England. However, in September 2018 PGS ASA sponsored litigation demanded that SDK sign a contract governed by the laws of Thailand. The contracts signed in Thailand were completely unnecessary and contained similar non-disparagement or gagging clauses. Gagging clauses are illegal under Norwegian law and unenforceable under English law (PIDA, 43J).
Under staffed ICO and ActionFraud (police) facilitate White Collar crime.
John Francas, on behalf of PGS ASA, knowingly misrepresents the SDK personal data which PGS ASA processes. PGS ASA is allowed to continue their harassment and litigation in Thailand without addressing the multitude of inconsistencies and lies.

PGS ASA CONTRACTS ARE NOW GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THAILAND?

PGS ASA Bypasses their Written Whistleblower Procedures and Initiates Litigation in Thailand WITHOUT ANY INVESTIGATION

PGS ASA Compliance does not Respond to Numerous Complaints and Concerns

5 December 2013 Contract Confidentiality terms and conditions between PGS Exploration (UK) Limited & SDK

SDK Challenges the Legality of this Contract because the supporting personnel file documents being processed are inaccurate defamatory forgeries that bare no subject countersignature. I believe their creation was intended to illegally terminate and then blacklist a whistleblower. SDK began publishing online whistleblowing blogs/articles 3 July 2015. PGS ASA has never taken any legal action under the terms and conditions of contracts governed by the laws of England. Why not? UK Legal firm Watson, Farley and Williams advised on this contract.

PGS ASA (PGS), a Norwegian based multi-national company with affiliate offices located around the world, believes that I have damaged the company brand and its agent’s reputations to a criminal level – in Thailand?  By PGS ASAs own acknowledgement, the brand value has been diminished thousands of dollars (USD) through their extortive pursuit of legal justice in Thailand.  PGS ASA hired Thailand legal firm Duensing – Kippen to deliver these civil and criminal complaints on behalf of their UK affiliate PGS Exploration (UK) Limited (PGSUK) to their former worker contracted under the laws of England.  By what legal authority can lawyers in Thailand deliver such complaints? PGS ASA has no affiliate offices in Thailand and besides no contracts were ever signed between us even if they did.  UK Legal firm, Watson, Farley and Williams advised on these contracts governed by the laws of England? Why isn’t their competence being challenged?

What PGS ASA shareholders and potential investors must consider is what levels of incompetence and/or corruption must exist within the direction and management of PGS ASA that would require the abandonment of Norwegian or English legal due process in favor of the Thai legal system to address such damage to the corporate brand? 

PGS ASA has already acknowledged that the PGS ASA brand has been damaged to a criminal level.  Their Thai claims state financial damages, as well. But whose fault are these damages really? Real legal due process has been thwarted. Citizens of Norway and the world must ask what levels of corruption must exist within the Norwegian corporate governance processes that would allow a Norwegian company board of directors and executives the ability to solve problems outside the corporate legal framework of Norway? Similarly, for the UK affiliate, outside the legal framework of England? I have published real evidence that the PGS ASA board of directors and executive management were very directly involved in a criminal conspiracy and assault of me and my family – emphasis my children! I have begged for intervention by government law enforcement to conduct a thorough investigation.  There has been no answer to reasonable requests from from a dysfunctional UK ActionFraud. I was a foreign worker employed on a Tier 2 visa when I was an initial victim of crimes perpetrated by the Norwegian organized crime syndicate UK affiliate.  I have had to be bound by the legal framework under the laws of England for several years. PGS ASA has been able to ignore legal contractual confidentiality clauses explicitly in place to protect against disparaging public disclosure.

It is the board of directors job is to guide the business legally and successfully.  These are concurrent and not mutually exclusive requirements. In Norway, legally means following the laws of Norway and not the laws of the Kingdom of Thailand.  For directors of an English company, this similarly means that the laws of England must be followed. It is my view that such a reliance on the Thai legal system by Norwegian company PGS ASA demonstrates serious corruption. At the very least, such directing and management demonstrates serious dysfunction of internal governance processes. It is not legal to pay someone to commit a crime on your behalf. Diana Lovejoy, a USA citizen, was sentenced to 26 years to life in prison for hiring a man to kill her husband.  The would be assassin was sentenced to 50 years to life. Her husband was not killed, but the hiring of someone with the intent to kill was a serious crime in of itself. By what legal authority does the PGS ASA board of directors have to hire a Thai legal firm to exercise defamation claims outside the legal contractual confidentiality clauses governed by the laws of England? I have asked several times, how can one be guilty of criminal defamation under Thai law and not in contractual breach under English law when the “plaintiff” is an English company governed by the laws of England? How is no response by PGS ASA general counsel Lars Mysen not fraud?  

PGS ASA hired Thailand law firm Duensing – Kippen to break UK laws provided through contract.  Duensing – Kippen harassed, blackmailed and extorted me and my Thai family members.  In fact, much of this harassment was done to my Thai family members whilst I was in the USA. PGS ASA did not possess the legal authority to deny me my rights under English law, and therefore neither does Duensing – Nippen as an agent of a company governed by the laws of England.  I believe that PGS ASA bribed Duensing – Kippen to break English and Thai laws on their behalf, which is illegal! My published disclosures claim that PGS ASA legal advisers under English law, Watson, Farley and Williams were previously bribed to utter forged documents to support a false pretense for a fraudulent settlement contract agreement. Both PGS ASA and Watson, Farley and Williams also withheld advised medical treatment and destroyed evidence to affect the fraudulent settlement contract. PGS ASA board of directors oversaw and approved of all of these violent illegal premeditated acts intended to harm a whistleblower and his family. NO LAWYERS REPRESENTING PGS ASA CAN AUTHENTICATE THE PROCESSES AND DOCUMENTS USED TO TERMINATE MY EMPLOYMENT. Which means PGS ASA and their legal advisers are all involved in a health harming criminal conspiracy to defraud and defame a whistleblower. Norway promotes and protects these accused criminals rather than investigate them!

I therefore believe that there must be corruption at the government level of Norway overseeing their oil and gas industry that allows such brazen behavior by its corporate executive class.  

Executives who do not recognize harassment and workplace bullying as a serious health and safety issues are not qualified to lead offshore operations. Executives who engage in fraud, bribery, and defamation to pervert the course of justice and hide their crimes should be in jail!

USA FBI – THAI POLICE : PLEASE INVESTIGATE DUENSING – KIPPEN; WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS; & PGS ASA CORRUPTION

UPDATE 9-APR-2020

This publication is legally protected public interests disclosure, or whistleblowing, provided through contracts governed by the laws of England referencing UK Public Interests Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA). Watson, Farley & Williams advised PGS ASA on contracts between PGS ASA and SDK governed by the laws of England. Why are Watson, Farley & Williams silent now?

Duensing Kippen have allegedly been bribed by PGS ASA UK subsidiary to illegally breach contracts governed by the laws of England and blackmail / extort a USA citizen foreign worker whistleblower. The (fraudulent) contract that SDK was compelled under threat of criminal prosecution in Thailand is illegal under Norway law and gagging clauses unenforceable under UK laws. The Duensing – Kippen contract had two resolution jurisdictions: The Kingdom of Thailand and USA, Houston, Texas. Lawyers Tippaya Moonmanee and Olaf Duensing misrepresented their qualification to adjudicate in US Federal Court. MORE FRAUD!

On 15 May 2018, Thailand law firm Duensing – Kippen formally acted to become a co-conspirator to defraud, defame and endanger the health and welfare of a USA citizen, his Thai citizen wife, and their Thai – USA children. Duensing – Kippen delivered an illegal letter making knowingly false claims at the behest of Norwegian company PGS ASA, Global law firm Watson, Farley, & Williams, along with UK Law firm LZW Solicitors. I believe that Duensing – Kippen avoided normal due diligence and knowingly ignored violating contractual jurisdiction issues and whistleblower protection laws (PIDA). The forementioned legal firms were bribed by my former employer, PGS ASA, to violate the law and invalidate previous agreements governed by the laws of England. As an agent of an English company, Duensing – Kippen are breaking the laws of England and Thailand to persecute a USA citizen victim of fraud and abuse. Threatening e-mail correspondence to a USA citizen is mail/wire fraud and RICO Act violations. The conspirators wanted to silence my evidence backed accusations of crimes and escape answering accusations in the English legal system where multiple laws were (alleged) violated. SDK submitted his first report to UK ActionFraud (police) 24 August 2015 upon my first realizing I was a victim of fraud. I have submitted several reports since then! The PGS ASA and Watson, Farley & Williams corporate governance and legal compliance / audit aparatus are dysfunctional and criminally corrupt. The UK police aparatus are also notably disfunctional and most fraud reports are not investigated and fraudsters are free to run amuck!

Most my posts have been a plea for government legal authorities to take action and investigate. My accusations are backed by evidence, unlike the ridiculous fraudulent claims submitted by Duensing – Kippen on behalf of PGS ASA!

Victims of organized corporate crime do not have the resources nor authority to punish white collar criminals, such as the several identified within my blog posts and articles. PGS ASA and Watson, Farley & Williams have all of the necessary avenues of legal recourse available to them within the English legal system.

PGS ASA and Watson, Farley & Williams are illegally using and corrupting the Thailand criminal justice system to avoid the English legal system.

  • Bribery
  • Blackmail / Extortion

I am a USA citizen married to a Thai woman. From September 2010 – December 2013, I worked in England. PGS Exploration UK Limited, 4 The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge, England KT13 0NY (PGSUK) sponsored me on a employment Tier 2 visa (Special Occupation List). My wife and I, along with our Thai – USA citizen children were all sponsored by PGSUK to live in England. D We were all owed a Duty of Care by PGSUK when we lived there from 26 September 2010 – 31 December 2020. PGS violated the terms and conditions of my employment contract multiple times. When I complained to key Norwegian executives about the misconduct, breach of contract, health and safety violations, and violations in UK law, parent company, PGS ASA retaliated. I was illegally terminated through fraudulent contract supported by uttered forged documents intended to illegally blacklist me in the industry. The fraud reached the very top of the organization and its board of directors. Watson, Farley and Williams negotiated the final termination settlement contract terms and conditions, as well as advised PGS on my Tier 2 visa. All involved lawyers have remained silent.

Two contracts were signed between myself and PGS Exploration (UK) Limited. Both were governed by the laws of England and contained clauses protecting whistleblowing through the Public Interests Disclosure Act 1998 [PIDA]. Where does Duensing – Kippen get the legal authority to breach / bypass contracts governed by the laws of England?

Duensing – Kippen decided to aid in the assault and robbery of me and my law – abiding Thai family. Duensing – Kippen’s threats terrorized my mother – in – law to the extent that she went to the hospital. She was very very traumatized and made ill by the illegal actions taken by Duensing – Kippen.

The charges drafted by Duensing – Kippen are fraudulent and supported by no evidence whatsoever. All lawyer refuse to acknowledge my publications as legal and protected public disclosure exposing criminal activity at the highest level of three (3) organizations: PGS ASA, Watson, Farley & Williams, and Landau Law (formally LZW Solicitors). The three (3) companies, two of which are law firms, participated in forming the final termination settlement contract which I claim to be fraudulent. All agents mentioned within my publications are all located in England. The contract is written in the English language. However, PGSUK is paying Duensing – Kippen to translate publications from English into Thai? .

Duensing – Kippen has decided to become an active part of the criminal conspiracy and cover-up through further damaging and traumatizing the victims crimes perpetrated by their client, PGS Exploration UK Limited. THESE ARE MY CLAIMS, BACKED BY DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE. I PLEA FOR A FAIR AND OBJECTIVE THOROUGH INVESTIGATION – what PGS ASA policy promises. UK Police are disfunctional and have refused multiple reports/requests to investigate.

Duensing – Kippen presents NO EVIDENCE of DEFAMATION. Carl Richards is a lawyer and former Company Secretary for PGS Exploration UK Limited. Why isn’t Richards citing the terms and conditions of the employment contract he oversaw that’s governed by the laws of England?

PGS ASA is illegally trying to gag a whistleblower

No need for translation.

Duensing – Kippen has no verifiable / legal evidence of defamation by SDK. The 2019 claims have never been delivered to the defendant. PGS ASA through Thailand law firm Duensing – Kippen deliver their claims in the Thai language to the home of SDK Thai relatives and not his legal address. PGS ASA and Duensing – Kippen demand that I travel from USA to Thailand to address these legal claims when my publications have already provided evidence that PGS ASA bribes lawyers to pervert the course of justice. PGS ASA has been accused since 2016 of criminal conspiracy and bribing Watson, Farley & Williams (UK) and Landau Law (UK) to utter forged documents and engage in fraud to damage a USA citizen whistleblower. Duensing – Kippen has been aware of my claims of being a whistleblower since 2018 when Carl Richards, former PGS Exploration UK Limited company secretary, initiated threats of legal action in Thailand. I posted then that I believed his threats to be blackmail/extortion. I continue to believe this today. Duensing – Kippen and PGS ASA have always ignored my claims that my publications were legal and protected. PGS has never followed the laws of England nor the UK company policy. PGS has never investigated my claims.

Their client is uttering forged documents that were used to support the illegal termination of a Tier 2 sponsored visa holder. PGS ASA and Watson, Farley & Williams UK affiliates have defrauded UK, Norway, USA, and Thailand government agencies. PGS ASA & Watson, Farley & Williams have misrepresented defamatory forged documents as legal documents. PGS ASA and Watson, Farley & Williams have also misrepresented protected public disclosure (whistleblowing) as defamatory in the Thai legal system through law firm Duensing – Kippen. I can prove it in ENGLISH. Translation into Thai language is wholly unnecessary misappropriation of resources by PGS ASA to deflect from their crimes commited under the laws of England. If what I have written in the English language is defamatory, why is it necessary for a UK company whose contracts are written in the English language governed by the laws of England to translate into the Thai language? How did Duensing – Kippen determine the published content was defamatory (untrue and harmful)?

PGS ASA and WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS: STOP YOUR UK ILLEGAL HARASSMENT, UTTERING FORGED DOCUMENTS and USA FEDERAL RACKETEERING-INFLUENCED CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS ACT (RICO) VIOLATIONS.

USA FIRST AMMENDMENT RIGHTS TRUMP A FRAUDULENT COMPROMISE AGREEMENT PROFFERED BY PGS ASA, A NORWEGIAN COMPANY, TO NEGATE TWO PREVIOUS AGREEMENTS SIGNED BY THE WHISTLEBLOWER AND PGS ASA UK AFFILIATE, PGS EXPLORATION (UK) LIMITED.  BOTH SIGNED AGREEMENTS CONTAIN NON-DISPARAGEMENT CLAUSES GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF ENGLAND.  BOTH AGREEMENTS ALSO PROTECT WHISTLEBLOWERS THROUGH THEIR REFERENCE OF THE UK PUBLIC INTEREST DISCLOSURE ACT 1998 (PIDA).  GLOBAL LAW FIRM, WATSON, FARLEY, & WILLIAMS UK AFFILIATE ADVISED ON BOTH OF THE EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS AS WELL AS ADVISING ON THE USA CITIZEN WHISTLEBLOWER EMPLOYMENT (TIER 2) VISA.  WATSON, FARLEY, & WILLIAMS ALSO HAVE OFFICES IN THAILAND.  WHY ISN’T PGS ASA USING WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS TO ADVISE ON THEIR CRIMINAL THAI DEFAMATION CASES? 

SINCE 2016, SDK HAS PUBLISHED DOCUMENTATION TO SUPPORT ALLEGATIONS THAT WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS AND PGS ASA WERE INVOLVED IN A CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY TO UTTER FORGED DOCUMENTS TO SUPPORT AN ILLEGAL TERMINATION OF A FOREIGN WORKER WHISTLEBLOWER.  PUBLISHED DOCUMENT EVIDENCE ALSO SUPPORT ALLEGATIONS THAT SDK COUNSEL MISREPRESENTED THEIR CLIENT – ME – AND ALSO WERE BRIBED TO UTTER FORGED DOCUMENTS TO SUPPORT A DEFAMATORY FALSE PRETENSE FOR THE TERMINATION SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT.  IT IS MY BELIEF THAT WATSON, FARLEY, & WILLIAMS HAS BEEN DRIVING THE ILLEGAL PROSECUTION OF CRIMINAL DEFAMATION CHARGES AGAINST WHISTLEBLOWER SDK TO ILLEGALLY FORCE THE DEPUBLICATION OF EVIDENCE (DESTRUCTION OF EVIDENCE) SHOWING WATSON, FARLEY AND WILLIAMS, PGS ASA, LANDAU LAW (FORMERLY LZW SOLICITORS, LONDON).  PGS ASA AND WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS HAVE ENLISTED THAI LEGAL FIRM DUENSING – KIPPEN TO PROSECUTE FRAUDULENT CLAIMS AND TO BLACKMAIL AND EXTORT THE WHISTLEBLOWER AND HIS THAI FAMILY INTO SILENCE. 

THERE HAS BEEN NO SDK DEFAMATION

DUENSING – KIPPEN CASE IS BASED ON FRAUD AND FORGERIES.  THE TRANSLATION OF PUBLICATIONS FROM ENGLISH TO THAI DEMONSTRATES THE CORRUPTION AND IDIOCY OF PGS ASA AND WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS BOARD OF DIRECTORS’.  PGS ASA; WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS; AND LANDAU LAW ARE COMPANIES GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF ENGLAND. 

THAI LEGAL FIRM DUENSING – KIPPEN IS REPRESENTING COMPANIES GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF ENGLAND AND DOES NOT POSSESS THE LEGAL AGENCY TO BREACH ENGLISH LAW AND CONTRACTS ON BEHALF OF THEIR CLIENTS.

PGS ASA, WATSON, FARLEY & WILLIAMS, AND LANDAU LAW HAVE NEVER EXERCISED CONTRACTUAL PROTECTIONS FOR DISPARAGEMENT CONTAINED IN CONTRACTS GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF ENGLAND BECAUSE ANY LITIGATION CITING THE LAWS OF ENGLAND WOULD REVEAL THEIR PARTICIPATION IN A CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY TO DEFRAUD AND DEFAME A USA CITIZEN HEALTH AND SAFETY WHISTLEBLOWER.

.

SLIDE SHOW – Watson, Farley and Williams (WFW) serve as ADVISORS to PGS Exploration (UK) Limited on Matters of Employment Law.

The most relevant document for all the lawyers mentioned within my blog post articles to explain is the 25 October 2013 Memo signed by (then) PGS EVP Marine Contract, Per Arild Reksnes and PGS SVP Global HR Terje Bjølseth.

There is very little for any whistle blower to gain from deception and distortions.  By action and words, several concerns have been presented with supporting evidence.   

Boycott Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) Capital Markets (25-Jul-2016)

These prose chronicle multiple infractions of corporate governance, as well as provide evidence of serious wrong-doing that should sound alarms whether true or false. Either way, the publications should prompt action and engagement. The articles have been viewed by thousands within and outside the marine geophysical sector. They show-up in first page results to Google™ searches associated with PGS CEO Jon Erik Reinhardsen.

Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) and the Veneer of Governance (8-May-2016)

A fair and thorough investigation addressing a whistleblowing claim is my legal right under English law and contract.  Such a request is not defamation.  PGS ASA (PGS) has been defrauding and defaming me since before June 2013.  There has been a continuum of perverting the course of justice with the malicious intent to harm me and my family physically and financially.  PGS’ behaviors have been cruelly abusive and illegal. Thus, the collective silence of the abusers. And PGS and several of its corrupt agents know it.  This is why PGS has had to bribe lawyers and other internal and external personnel to manipulate the fair legal processes owed me under law and contract.  Through bribing lawyers, avenues of legal redress are obstructed. Victims of PGS ASA et al. crime and abuse cannot find justice – easily.  Just as shameful has been the (alleged) illegal acts conducted on PGS’ behalf by co-conspirator, law firm Watson, Farley and Williams (WFW).  The most relevant document for all the lawyers mentioned within my blog post articles is to explain the 25 October 2013 Memo signed by (then) PGS EVP Marine Contract, Per Arild Reksnes and PGS SVP Global HR Terje Bjølseth.I believe that PGS and WFW owe me hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions,  of (USA) dollars for their breaches in contract along with fraud, perverting the course of justice, and other illegal acts.  Likely several PGS and WFW executives should go to prison too. The police need to take white-collar crime more seriously. Dysfunction and apathy destroys victims lives.  The stakes are high. My initial whistleblowing claim was made in June 2013. Most every personnel and personal action taken by PGS to respond to my whistleblowing has been wrapped in illegal conspiracy.  PGS and WFW have knowingly defrauded UK and Norway government agencies. This is why principals PGS and WFW refuse to detail the documentation supporting their decision making process. However, PGS ASA Capital Markets investors must demand a thorough investigation and audit as part of their fiduciary duties they own their stakeholders.

The vantage point of time-passed and actions taken has allowed me to construct the breadth of the deceitful cruel and illegal actions taken against me and my family.  I have not been a quiet victim of PGS and WFW crimes. Since I first became aware of PGS’ nefarious and illegal behaviors, I have shared it publicly through blog post articles.  My first blog post article which named names was published on the LinkedIn™ Pulse platform (LI) 3 July 2015. PGS and WFW continued to defame me through their choosing not to invoke the non-disparagement (Confidentiality) terms and conditions within the employment contract and subsequent termination settlement contract which rests at the center of my blog posts.  Instead guilty parties and/or their enablers anonymously make their false claims of defamation to LI administrators. PGS and WFW did not want to address the published content and claims within my blog post articles in a courtroom.  PGS and WFW did not want to clarify or correct the content and claims.  PGS and WFW wanted my voice silenced and the content and claims de-published because they were fact-based whistleblowing exposing corruption.  In August 2016, I was restricted from LI. The social media network for professionals was unintentionally (we hope) aiding and abetting corruption through restricting my account that published protected published disclosure and credible allegations of criminal activity.  PGS and WFW never had to address my publications as whistleblowing which is protected within the Confidentiality clauses of both contracts. WFW formed these contracts on behalf of PGS’ UK affiliate, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited (PGSUK).  Following my restriction from publishing on LI, I continued publishing content on my own dedicated website, nopgs.com (NO Psychopaths in Geo-Services). I also started using Twitter™ to publish my whistleblowing claims and to link/direct users to more detailed articles with evidence of PGS/WFW wrong-doing published on nopgs.com.  

Throughout 2016, I tried multiple times to contact the PGS Compliance Hotline to voice my concerns, but never received a response.  I also contacted WFW risk and compliance and received similar stonewalling. PGS further defamed me to the entire LI community through stating that they carried out a thorough investigation when they never did.  I am certain of this because I know the facts. I am the subject of my personal data. I know exactly what happened. By this time, I had determined that both PGS and WFW, including compliance, were corrupt and vested in a cover-up.  It also began to be clear that my legal counsel, Philip Landau with employment law firm Landau, Zeffertt and Weir Solicitors (LZW), had also been compromised. In other words, in actuality, I had had no real legal representation for my grievance – which met the criteria for whistleblowing – with PGS.  WFW represented their client and my employer, the PGSUK in an illegally rigged settlement negotiation process that bypassed my legally guaranteed rights under English employment laws. With WFW guidance, PGS bypassed legally guaranteed grievance process steps as well as precautions for stressed employees, as I had stated that I was.  The most significant aspect of being the mark of a conspiracy to defame and defraud in retaliation for my June 2013 whistleblowing was the fact that I was a USA citizen employed through PGSUK sponsorship of my Tier 2 visa. With all of my avenues of legal recourse compromised, the cabal was able to gaslight and break English laws with relative ease.  This was all premeditated perverting the course of justice and fraud with the knowledge that such action harmed the health and safety of their target of abuse.  The objective of my online publications have been to provoke PGSUK into exercising the terms and conditions of my original employment contract and especially the termination settlement agreement contract which was the outcome of the rigged negotiations between PGS, WFW, and LZW which were predicated on forged defamatory documentation. 

Also, I had always wanted to go through the legal grievance process.  PGSUK offered the settlement to avoid the grievance process.  The underlying performance issues were never substantiated by any process or documentation and were in fact the basis for my grievance in the first place.

25 October2013 Memo
Boycott Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) Capital Markets (25-Jul-2016)

The mob exists in a make-believe world and then makes their decisions based on the fabricated self-delusion that they do not.  PGS executives say that they have core values, but they do not apply them to their decisions.  PGS executives say that their health and safety statistics are above industry standard, but they suppress and remove health and safety concerns from consideration and publication.

Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) Mob Gaslighting (30-Jun-2016)

My publications have provided e-mail and other evidence supporting my allegations.  PGS, WFW and LZW have publically misrepresented my whistleblowing, which was always legal and protected public disclosure within the definition of the UK Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA), to be defamation. PGS, WFW and LZW are all aware of this and that is why no legal action has ever been taken under the laws of England that governed my employment contracts.  In September 2018, the directors of the PGS UK affiliate, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited (PGSUK), 4 The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge, England, KT13 0NY (PGSUK); Rune Olav Pedersen, PGS CEO; Gottfred Langseth, PGS CFO; Christin Steen-Nilsen, PGS Chief Accountant, along with former secretary and PHS UK Head of Legal, Carl Richards, delivered criminal defamation claims to the house where I lived in Thailand.    I was not there. I had just left Thailand for the United States (US) and was not able to receive the claims in person until I returned (earlier than planned) in October 2018. That’s right, a multinational marine geophysical service company based in Norway with affiliate offices located around the world believes that I have damaged the company and its agent’s reputations to a criminal level – in Thailand? Over three years since my initial publications on LI had passed, PGSUK and Carl Richards delivered summons and criminal charges of defamation while I traveled abroad.  PGS does not list any offices in Thailand. On the other hand their legal representation in my case, global legal firm WFW, does have an office in Bangkok, Thailand. However, WFW has never threatened any legal action against me in spite of the fact that WFW has been mentioned in several of my articles. A different legal firm, Duensing Kippen – Attorneys & Arbitrators is representing PGS interests in Thailand.  

What shareholders and potential investors must consider with PGS Capital Markets is what levels of incompetence and/or corruption must exist within the direction and management of PGS that would require the abandonment of English (and/or Norwegian) legal due process and contract law in favor of the Thai legal system?  

Since July 2015 my published articles have been intended to alert PGS stakeholders of these risks.  PGS has a legal department that employs lawyers whose responsibility is to review PGS business contracts and ensure that they do not expose the company to excessive risks.  It is my belief that PGS’ inability to resolve contractual issues within the constraints of jurisdictional clauses exposes corrupt and incompetent management and is therefore a significant capital markets risk.  Both the original contract of employment and the termination settlement contract are governed by the laws of England. Further, WFW was involved in forming the terms and conditions of the original contract of employment, assisting in the Tier 2 visa application and approval process, as well as the eventual settlement agreement which I claim is a fraudulent instrument predicated on forged and defamatory documents.  PGS and WFW have refused multiple requests to confirm that the same documentation used to obtain the Tier 2 visa was also used to form the terms and conditions of the termination settlement contract agreement? Both of the legal contract agreements between PGSUK and myself were advised by WFW. Only the original employment contract and the termination settlement contract agreement bare my countersignature. All of the other personnel file documentation are signed by HR personnel and not my immediate supervisor. 

This begs the question as to how did WFW ensure the accuracy and legitimacy of the signed termination settlement contract? And also, how can their be criminal defamation claims in Thailand and no breach in the non-disparagement terms and conditions in either one of the contracts governed by the laws of England? WFW is a global law firm with office in both England and Thailand. WFW advised on both the original employment contract and subsequent termination contracts which both contained Confidentiality clauses citing PIDA protections. So, how has WFW advised PGSUK in their legal actions in Thailand with firm Duensing-Kippon (DK)? The compromise agreements that I was forced to sign under threat of prosecution for criminal defamation in Thailand bypass the WFW advised legal agreements formed under the laws of England. WFW certainly should be advising PGSUK in their Thailand legal actions. WFW has never been included directly in the “legal notices” sent to me in Thailand by DK. Why not? DK is essentially being used to disassemble WFW advised agreements and take the dispute out of the legal jurisdiction of England and into Thailand. This benefits all conspirators, most notably PGS and WFW. PGSUK, an English company, is investing significant resources to stay out of the English legal system. I cannot see how this is legal under the Companies Act 2006 or English contract law. PGS, WFW, and DK remain silent, as does LZW (now Landau Law) who was supposed to represent my interests from October – December 2013. 

The only formal employment action between me and PGSUK was the grievance.  There were only threats of a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) being investigated, which I qualified as harassment and bullying.  

What #PhilipLandau, #London #EmploymentLaw Solicitor taught me about Settlement Contracts (30 April 2017) p128-129

Most of all, PGS executives have abused their positions and violated their agency responsibilities of trust and confidence and duty of care to maintain a healthy and safe workplace.  Forgery and the uttering of forged instruments is criminal behavior.   

The Crimes of Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) CEO Jon Erik Reinhardsen (4-Sep-2016)

Where does DK get its legal agency to bypass agreements formed under the laws of England?  DK is an agent of PGSUK, an English company governed by the laws of England.  DK cannot assume authority to break the laws of England or legal agreements that PGSUK does not legally possess as a principal.  DK can only legally exercise the legal authority possessed by PGSUK. This is why I regard the legal actions being taken against me and my family in Thailand to be fraudulent.  Further, there remain several pertinent unanswered questions by WFW, PGS, and LZW. How can a “poor performing employee” be legally sponsored and employed on a Tier 2 visa? WFW advised PGSUK on my Tier 2 sponsorship and reviewed all documentation submitted to the UK Border Agency in both 2010 and again in July 2013 for the visa renewal. The other question is how was the personnel file documentation establishing “performance issues” articulated within the PGSUK 24 July 2013 letter (signed by David Nicholson) vetted for process compliance, accuracy and legality?  The opening negotiations by PGSUK by their representative WFW counsel, stated:

WFW has no authority nor qualified privilege to assess my performance as a Tier 2 visa sponsored employee of PGSUK. Without credible and compliant process documentation, WFW is defaming and defrauding me on behalf of PGSUK. And my counsel, LZW, is allowing this to happen? Similarly, the 24 July 2013 letter which was the predicate for my subsequent filing of a workplace grievance 20 September 2013 is defamatory as well. Without credible and compliant process documentation, PGSUK (i.e., directors and secretary) is defaming me because malicious prose also have no qualified privilege. Further, PGSUK have no direct knowledge of my work performance. I worked for no director nor secretary directly. My immediate supervisor, Edward von Abendorff, PGS Marine Contract, VP Contract Sales – Africa, has not signed any of the pertinent documentation, nor has the subject of any performance reviews, me! Even von Abendorff would not possess qualified privilege if their were malicious intent, such as bullying and mobbing an employee that they supervise to escape accountability for misconduct. PGS, aided by WFW, LZW and DK, have illegally weaponized the human resources department through the misuse of employment lawyers. Lawyers involved within my dispute with PGS have not performed their legally prescribed duties to their ability, but rather advanced a false narrative to protect PGS ASA. Lawyers involved in my case with PGS ASA have uttered forged documents lauding a defamatory narrative. The central question is what would motivate lawyers to behave this way?

When I eventually did deliver my formal grievance complaining of workplace bullying and harassment, along with multiple departures from PGSUK policy and UK contract and employment laws, I cited that the three principal bullies were, in fact, behaving with arbitrary caprice.

Carl Richards, Arbitrary and Capricious Company Secretary, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited (24 Feb 2018) p112-118

I have not received any requests to stop publishing my pieces by anyone, including those within PGS.  The simple truth is that what I have published is indeed true.  I know it.  Many know it.  As time passes and the truth is no longer disputed what will remain, at the very least, is a chronological record of non-action and apathy by PGS executives.

Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) CEO Jon Erik Reinhardsen Should Resign 2 (20-Sep-2015)
  • Watson, Farley & Williams (WFW) has offices in both England and Thailand. Why did Norway's PGS use law firm Duensing-Kippon (DN) to pursue claims against a whistleblower in Thailand?

PGS ASA USA RICO ACT/LAW VIOLATIONS

DEAR USA FBI,

PLEASE INVESTIGATE NORWAY’S PGS ASA ORGANIZED CRIME ACTIVITY.

– Sincerely, USA Citizen and Victim of a Corrupt Global Organization

There is no normal legal pathway that could describe how a contract dispute governed by the laws of England would be finally resolved within the Thai criminal justice system. The principal reason that contracts define legal jurisdiction and applicable laws is so parties of a a contract can plan and understand the rules of resolution if breaches occur. Settlement agreements are very binding. The laws of England are remarkably different then the laws of Thailand. Why would PGS ASA consider them interchangeable? I have for several years disputed the legality of the termination settlement contract agreement that was signed by myself and PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge, England, KT13 0NY [PGSUK] 5 December 2013. This contract is governed under the laws of England. I cannot force PGS Exploration (UK) Limited to invoke contractual terms and conditions which are designed to protect parties from publishing disparaging content about the other party. I cannot not be blamed for their collective apathy and negligence.

What was the point of the inclusion of such non-disparagement clauses? PGS ASA has never challenged public accusations of non-compliant and/or criminal acts of named PGS agents, most notably their former CEO and President, Jon Erik Reinhardsen. PGS ASA has never financed an investigation that would absolve themselves. PGS ASA has also never cited the public disclosures as a breach of contract. Instead, new litigation that bypasses the terms and conditions of currently enforceable agreement is initiated in Thailand? PGS ASA General Counsel, Lars Mysen, and PGS UK Head of Legal, John Francas, both refuse to explicitly confirm whether such litigation in Thailand is legal and/or compliant under the laws of England. PGS ASA could litigate under the Laws of England and exonerate themselves. The UK Companies Act 2006 makes it clear that it is the fiduciary duty of company directors (and secretary) to both follow English law as well as protect the company brand and reputation. There simply cannot be any criminal defamation in Thailand without their first being a breach by the other party of the Confidentiality terms and conditions of a contract governed by the laws of England.

The Theft of NOPGS.COM and the Destruction of Evidence

It is my belief that the Claims filed in Thai Criminal Court against SDK by PGS Exploration (UK) Limited are Fraudulent.

SDK Publications are known by the PLAINTIFF, PGS ASA / PGS EXPLORATION (UK) LIMITED to be LEGAL AND PROTECTED PUBLIC DISCLOSURE per Norway’s Work Environment Act (WEA) and UK’s Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA)

PIDA is Referenced Directly Within UK Employment Contracts

PGS ASA / PGS EXPLORATION (UK) LIMITED ARE KNOWINGLY MISREPRESENTING SDK PUBLICATIONS AS CRIMINAL DEFAMATION IN THAILAND

John “Fraudster” Francas

Licensed to practice law in England, Francas is too afraid to litigate in England where his illegal acts would be clearly revealed. Cowardly and corrupt Francas instead engages in nefarious fraud and blackmail at the behest of PGS ASA executives by misusing the Thai Criminal Justice System to persecute and harass a victim of their crimes into silence. I refuse to give-up my voice of truth!

I believe that John “Fraudster” Francas, newly appointed Head of Legal, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge, England, KT13 0NY (PGSUK), is a liar, cheater, and fraudster.  I believe Francas is a mercenary with legal credentials being paid and misused by corrupted interests to obstruct justice.  Francas knows what he is doing.  If Francas believes my claims are defamatory, then I implore him to make his legal case.

15375 Memorial Dr, Ste. 100, Houston, TX, 77049-4138

PGS Exploration (UK) Limited [PGSUK] Bypassed / Breached contractual commitments governed by the Laws of England. PGS ASA /PGSUK has NEVER TAKEN ANY ACTION on a civil breach of contractual confidentiality terms and conditions that provide parties with avenues of redress for disparaging publications. These contracts are governed by the Laws of England that provide WHISTLEBLOWER protections through the Public Interests Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA). As Late as 16 July 2018, PGS ASA / PGSUK referenced terms and conditions of a termination settlement contract signed 5 December 2013 between PGSUK and SDK, yet never cited specific breaches. Instead, PGS ASA took action using the Thai Criminal Justice system in September 2018?

Original Employment Contract, 27 September 2010, Governed by the Laws of England, References Confidentiality Terms to Protect PGS ASA from Disparaging Publications

Termination Settlement Contract Signed 5 December 2013

2018 GDPR Subject Access Request (SAR) Refusal to Respond

The 2018 SAR that SDK submitted requested PGS ASA comment regarding any processing with regard to my publications AFTER THE 2014 SAR. The response by PGS ASA / PGS UK Head of Legal, John Francas, on behalf of PGS ASA, misrepresents PGS and SDK data protection history. Another SAR was submitted in 2016 through PGS ASA Compliance. Rune O Pedersen was PGS ASA General Counsel at the time. Pedersen was provided with several published whistleblowing articles which also claimed PGS ASA executive and board of directors non-compliant and criminal behavior. These e-mails were forwarded to PGS ASA Data Protection Officer, Daphne Bjerke,with the 2018 SAR for consideration.

PGS ASA continued to contend that the 5 December 2013 termination settlement contract (TSC) is still valid as late as 16 July 2018. Many of my articles had contended that the TSC was a fraudulent instrument supported by forged documents. In September 2018, less than two (2) months later and over three (3) years after my first online published whistleblowing post, PGS decides to forward a claim citing Thai criminal law? How can the data subject and former employee not be in breach of the TSC but be in violation of criminal defamation in Thailand?

PGS Exploration (UK) Limited (England) Company Directors and Head of Legal’s Selected Contract Jurisdictions are both the Kingdom of Thailand and Harris County, Texas, USA. Not England?

The directors who proffered the contract with two legal jurisdictions for PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, Weybridge, England, are: Rune O. Pedersen, Christin Steen-Nilsen, and Gottfred Langseth. Former Secretary and PGS UK Head of Legal, Carl Richards signed a similar contract.
PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, Weybridge, England original employment contract was governed by the laws of England and confidentiality terms and conditions included provisions for whistleblowing through the Public Interests Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA) which is a legal requirement for English contracts. Contract terms and conditions that gag parties are voidable under English law (PIDA 43J).
The PGS Exploration (UK) Limited Legal Contract Jurisdictions are both the Kingdom of Thailand and Harris County, Texas, USA
Unconscionable conduct is also found in acts of FRAUD
 and deceit, where the deliberate MISREPRESENTATION
 of fact deprives someone of a valuable possession. Whenever someone takes unconscionable advantage of another person, the action may be treated as criminal fraud or the civil action of deceit.

Why did PGS ASA Human Resources, PGS ASA Legal, along with law firms Watson, Farley, & Williams and Landau, Zeffertt and Wier (LZW) [now Landau Law] fail to see a problem with processing unsigned and unverified employee records? Maybe PGS ASA bribed the other law firms to avoid accountability for illegal harassment, discrimination and defamation?

PGS ASA Fails Employment Law 101

Why did PGS ASA Human Resources, PGS ASA Legal, along with law firms Watson, Farley, & Williams and Landau, Zeffertt and Wier (LZW) [now Landau Law] fail to see a problem with processing unsigned and unverified employee records? Maybe PGS ASA bribed the other law firms to avoid accountability for illegal harassment, discrimination and defamation?

PGS ASA Compliance Saw NO PROBLEM processing Personal Data with No Subject Signature?
PGS ASA Human Resources Processes High-Risk Personal Data Void of Subject Signature?
PGS UK Legal saw NO PROBLEM with HR Processing Records without Subjects Signature?

The Data Subject (SK) HAS NOT SIGNED ANY DOCUMENTS SUPPORTING the Termination Settlement Contract Agreement, signed 5 December 2013.

Is this Carelessness or Fraud?

Subject SK did not work for, nor with David Nicholson, PGS UK HR Manager, the signatory of this defamatory non-compliant document.  The content of this document is unsubstantiated defamatory hearsay.  The content is not the derivative of compliant PGS Personnel Handbook or legal processes.  The content is malicious and therefore unprivileged.  The content also contradicts personal data provided officially to UK Border Agency to process a Tier 2 visa in July 2013. If this content is valid, then it means PGS defrauded UK Border Agency.  In June 2013, SDK informed DN that he wanted to submit a workplace grievance citing DN, et al. non-compliant / illegal conduct.  PGS management conspired to obstruct and deny my legal rights.
