I, amongst others, have been seeing these calls for additional information
as very close to trolling / stalking. Taking your points in order however:

"Moral" requirements don't cut much ice in this situation. Like it or not,
WER Limited is obliged to operate under the Company Law of England & Wales
as that is the law it is registered under. The Company as a whole
represents Wikimedia in the UK. It doesn't, per se, represent individuals.
As I understand it, Paul will have to stand down at
the upcoming AGM,
since he was appointed not elected.
That is correct. One-third of the Board is required to resign each year
and may seek re-appointment.
Assuming you actually allow interested
parties to take part in the AGM (if you don't, you can expect
trouble), I strongly doubt he'll be elected without telling the
electorate a little more about himself.
As with every other registered company we will have an AGM to which all
members of the Company will be invited, they being the "interested
parties" required by law who are empowered to vote. As regards your
bracketed aside I do not appreciate threats and would suggest you cease
His on-wiki identity, at the very least.
As I said above, this repeated calling for what is, in every sense,
unnecessary information - from a legal standpoint - is becoming very close
to stalking. Should *any* member of or candidate for the Board wish to
disclose information about themselves in addition to that required by
Company Law to be published is their choice and theirs alone. It will
never be something demanded by the Company.
