Nicholas Mockford, a 60 year old British executive for the oil company ExxonMobil has been shot dead in front of his wife in an assassination-style killing in Brussels.
He was shot three times after leaving the Da Marcello restaurant in Rue de Beyseghem at around 10pm on Oct 14.
The reason why news of this murder is just breaking now is because Belgian police imposed a news blackout and the areas government kept the story tightly under wraps.
The fact that such a high profile figure can be assassinated in a public place without any news appearing for two weeks just goes to show you how easily it is to manipulate public perception, hiding things from the media as well as the general population.
“We are all confused about what has happened. Nick was a genuinely lovely, clean-cut, mild mannered, family man.
I don’t think he would put up a fight or argue with someone trying to steal his company car. He was shot so calmly and so quickly, it smacks horribly of a professional hit, but we can’t fathom why. He isn’t the type to cave in to blackmail and it just doesn’t compute.”
