Dear reader,

This time, we bring you two stories and a book.

Our editor Tim Luimes investigated the lobbying activities of the chemical industry to prevent a general EU-ban on PFAS.

Olivia den Hollander describes how Dutch insurance companies operate when they suspect a client of a fraudulent claim. They hardly ever report such cases to the legal authorities but handle them themselves – leaving the suspects with limited legal safeguards.

And I myself finally published my political biography of Shell, after working on it for more than 25 years.

Keep following us, we appreciate your feedback, and keep hitting that button below.


Best regards,
