Question 12 to be answered by Eni
This is "Question 12" to be answered by Eni.
Introduction Question 12: My Social Networks vs Eni
Eni also stated in the company’s “offial document” Questions and answers before the Shareholders Meeting 2017 that my Social Networks are slandering and defaming Eni:
“In fact, as of 2014, Mr Flinto has escalated his communication initiatives for alleged ethical purposes with the creation of an Internet site, a blog and various social network accounts, entirely dedicated to Eni, which publish and continuously implement negative news about Eni, along with denigrating comments and images that damage the company’s image”.
Indeed, my Social Networks talk about Eni. I only transcribe what the Italian media (a few newspapers), and the global media notice about Eni. But there is no sort of slander or defamation.
Its important to remember that slander and defamation strike the “honor” of someone (or a company). But, when it comes to Eni, not at all am I slandering or defaming the company. And this because honor is classified as:
a) Subjective honor: it is that linked to the intimate of a person (or a company), to what they think of themselves, their self-esteem.
b) Objective honor: it is that linked to the judgment that others make of the individual (or the company), social consideration, the image that the individual (or the company) passes to the social group in which they are inserted.
However, in order to characterize “slander”, the imputed fact tem que ser falso, while in “defamation” it suffices that is is offensive to the reputation (Injury, in turn, affects the subjective honor of the victim, that is, the judgment that each one makes of themselves, not having the imputation of any fact).
But it is important to remember that, for facts that reach objective honor, it is possible to exercise the EXCEPETION OF TRUTH, that is, if the fact that is imputed to someone (or a company) is “true” there is no harm!
Besides, there is the EXCEPTION OF NOTORIETY, that is, if the facts are of “public domain” there are is also no harm!
Everything that I write on my Social Networks are of public domain.
12-A) The publications in my Social Networks are totally of “public domain”. So why di Eni say that “In fact, as of 2014, Mr Flinto has escalated his communication initiatives for alleged ethical purposes with the creation of an Internet site, a blog and various social network accounts, entirely dedicated to Eni, which publish and continuously implement negative news about Eni, along with denigrating comments and images that damage the company’s image”?
12-C) For a global company like Eni, “negative news” must be as important as “positive news”! Because “negative news” give the companies the opportunity to reverse a situation to turn it into “positive news”. Doesn’t the newspaper publish “negative news” all the time? Why can’t I do the same?
12-C) Does Eni respect “freedom of expression”? What does the company think about it?
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.
Follow daily the new questions in this Blog to see if the Italian oil giant will answer.
Question 12 is also in my LinkedIN.
