From Mr Ronald Eyres

Sir: The Shell flags fluttering outside the Queen Elizabeth II conference centre for the company's AGM on 18 May were lowered to half-mast in respect for Ken Saro-Wiwa, in prison for opposing Shell's oil drilling in Ogoniland.

In a message, recently smuggled out, he wrote: "I am being intimidated, harassed and dehumanised, even though I am supposed to be receiving medical attention. I am like Ogoni: battered, bruised, brutalised, bloodied and almost buried."

Yours faithfully,


London, NW5
