In Norway, Whistleblowing is a Capitol Offense

Why does Norway hate Americans?

PGS ASA CEO & President Rune Olav Pedersen is a lawyer. So, Pedersen knows very clearly what a criminal peice of shit he really is. Pedersen was PGS ASA General Counsel prior to his ascension to CEO when the original crimes that he has been publicly accused of committing through numerous blog publication and image files were posted online.

Pedersen is also a director of PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Weybridge, England. As a director, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited an English company governed by the laws of England, filed two criminal defamation claims against former employee USA citizen SDK while he was living in Thailand citing Thailand defamation laws?

PGS Exploration (UK) Limited sponsored USA citizen on a Tier 2 visa so that he could legally work in England and so his dependent family member could remain in England. The employment contract between PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and SDK was governed by the laws of England.

SDK was terminated from employment through a settlement contract, similarly governed by the laws of England. SDK has contended that this termination was illegal and the settlement contract fraudulent. Nevertheless, both the original employment contract and the settlement contract contained Confidentiality terms and conditions prohibiting the publication of disparaging content.

In 2014, SDK submitted a subject access request for all personal data PGS processed about SDK. SDK learned that PGS was processing forged and defamatory records. These records were used to justify a termination from employment for performance based reasons.

PGS had proffered the settlement contract in response to a workplace grievance that claimed violations in the UK Health and Safety Act 1974 and the Equality Act 2006. The grievance also claimed harassment and bullying, misuse of the performance management system, and defamation.

In England, termination employment by settlement contract requires that the employee get advice from a lawyer/solicitor. However, a settlement contract cannot be used to stop the legally and contractual right to raise a workplace grievance before a conclusion has been rendered.

SDK is a geophysicist and not a lawyer. Over time, it has become clear that SDKs legal counsel, Philip Landau and Holly Hobson, with LZW Law at the time, accepted bribes to process a fraudulent settlement contract to export a USA citizen victim of crimes and whistleblower back to the USA without allowing his legal due process.

PGS bribed legal firm Watson Farley & Williams to similarly process the forged defamatory records to support the illegal settlement contract. SDK became aware that he was a fraud victim the moment he received his personnel file with the false instruments.

SDK was threatened with a lawsuit while asking about the contents of the personnel file 22 December 2014. Because of the binding nature of settlement contracts, I could not file any claim. This is because SDKs counsel had betrayed him. In effect, SDK never had legal representation. Landau and Hobson were participating in the confidence fraud.

SDK knew that something was wrong during the settlement negotiation process and was very close to dumping Landau – Hobson. However, SDK had no ties in England and wanted to exit the unhealthy and hostile environment with his family as soon as possible.

SDK published his first legally protected public disclosure 3 July 2015 on the LinkedIn Pulse platform. PGS did not take any legal action for breach of the contractual Confidentiality terms and conditions. On 24 August 2015, SDK submitted his first report to UK ActionFraud (police). No action was taken, as is all to typical for victims of fraud and white-collar crime.

No one takes SDK claims seriously because he signed a settlement contract advised on by a lawyer. That settles all claims. SDK continued to publish legally protected content – whistleblowing. SDK also made multiple attempts to contact PGS Compliance. PGS did not respond. On 20 August 2016, SDK was restricted from LinkedIn. PGS knew the settlement contract was fraudulent. They did not take legal action, but complained to LinkedIn to have SDK silenced.

SDK shifted all content onto and continued publishing content on that webpage and also publishing image content and links to his disclosure on Twitter.

In April 2018, SDK received emails threatening litigation in Thailand from PGS Exploration (UK) Limited Secretary, Carl Richards. In September, as SDK left Thailand for a trip to the USA, Thai legal firm delivered two criminal defamation claims. Conviction could be up to 3-years in prison in Thailand. One claim was on behalf of recently resigned Richards and the other by the directors of English company, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited: Rune Olav Pedersen (PGS CEO), Gottfred Langseth (PGS CFO) and PGS Chief Accountant, Christin Steen-Nilsen.

This terrified my Thai in-laws and relatives. Once again, SDK signed two legally dubious compromise agreements in Thailand. SDK immediately breached these “agreements” because SDK wrote a complaint to JOGMEC when PGS was negotiating the sale of one of their S-class Ramform vessels. PGS stated that SDK had breached the signed agreements and threatened to pursue criminal prosecution again.

During this traumatic period of waiting for a criminal trial in Thailand, was stolen and all content destroyed. This was destruction of evidence. SDK was prepared to go to trial without a lawyer because PGS bribes lawyers to fix outcomes. PGS accepted the Thai agreements. SDK moved his content to and continued publishing. SDK would continue to get threats from Duensing-Kippen on behalf of PGS.

SDK returned to the USA in 2019. Duensing – Kippen delivered “legal claims” to the homes of SDKs relatives to try to silence legally protected public disclosure. SDKs wife finally arrived in the USA in 2020. Duensing – Kippen continued to send packages for me in Thailand and in the Thai language.

PGS, Landau Law, and Watson Farley & Williams have never cited a breach in the first settlement contract. And following SDKs stating that all the emails being sent to him in the USA were illegal cyber-extortion and wire fraud, these threats finally stopped too by mid-2020.

Rune Olav Pedersen is a lawyer. He has control over 4 contracts containing prohibitions on SDK publishing content that disparages PGS or any of its stakeholders. No action is taken?

Only the first contract, which PGS breached, is legal. The other three are illegal instruments intended to silence the USA citizen and victim of crimes.

SDK is in the USA now. So, of course PGS does not try their threats and shenanigan’s in SDKs home country, because SDK has a better understanding of the law here, and of course the language.

Elements of the Norwegian government are complicit in the fraud, harassment, blacklisting and terrorizing of a USA citizen and his family. However, even the country of Norway and their racketeering ways doesn’t know how to handle one (former) Texan armed with the truth and evidence of their crimes.

Rune Olav Pedersen is just a criminal with a law degree who is given money to payout bribes to employees and law firms who lie to everyone and keep the Norway low corruption myth alive.

I was restricted on Twitter because PGS/Equinor mishandle whistleblowing claims and instead rely on social media censorship/restriction to silence the truth.
