"I make Malala's words my own: 'I tell my story not because it is unique but because it is not" and I hope my story can be served as an example, motivation and inspiration to other whistleblowers who are being silenced and their careers and reputations buried around the world by companies that don’t respect their codes of ethics, by employees and executives who steal corporate coffers and the board that pretends nothing happens"

Question 04 to be answered by Eni.
This is "Question 04" to be answered by Eni. Introduction
Question 04: Promise
At the end
of 2013, the Italian press gave the news of who would be the new members of the
Board of Eni and made their bets on who would occupy the position of CEO. I
started writing to these people to tell my story that would complete 12 long
years in that year!
Only one of
these professionals replied to my email. It was Mr. Luigi Zingales, who
served as economic advisor to the Italian government. Despite the Italian
nationality, Mr. Zingales has been living in the USA for over 20 years and is
an economics professor at the University of Chicago. In his email, he stated
that he already knew my story and would do his best to help me (Doc. 01), if he was confirmed at Eni’s Shareholders
Meeting, which happened in May 2014.
Some time later, in another email (Doc. 02), professor Zingales stated that he was “working
in silence” in my favor. Weeks later, we were together in Brazil, when he came
to launch one of his books (Doc. 03). However, fifteen days after our meeting,
professor Zingales resigned from his post at the Board of Eni because of “irreconcilable
differences with his peers of the Board of Eni regarding how it should be the
company’s management” (Doc. 04).
4-A) Did the Board of Eni know that Mr. Zingales knew my
story and was willing to intercede for me before the other members of the Board
of the company?
4-B) What were these “irreconcilable differences with his
peers of the Board of Eni regarding how it should be the company’s management”
that made Mr. Luigi Zingales resign from the position of non-executive director
of the Board of Eni?
4-C) Was one of these “irreconcilable differences” the fact
that Mr. Luigi Zingales tried to help me with the Board of Eni?
I am Eni's Whistleblower that suffers "retaliation" from this company until today.
There will be a total of "15 questions" which, in these 17 years, Eni has not yet answered.
