BRUSSELS – Belgian prosecutors are investigating the murder of a
British oil executive shot and killed in front of his wife as they
walked to their car after dinner at an Italian restaurant in Brussels.
Mr Nicholas Mockford, who worked for United States oil giant
ExxonMobil, was shot at least twice on Oct 14 but prosecutors declined
to say if they were investigating the case as a possible contract
Belgian media earlier reported police believed Mr Mockford had been
killed in a failed car hijacking, though the couple’s Lexus sports
utility vehicle had not been taken after the shooting.
ExxonMobil in Belgium said that Mr Mockford, 59, had worked as a
department head at its office in Machelen, on the outskirts of Brussels.
“Of course we are all shocked,” a company spokesman said. “There is no indication that the incident was work-related.” REUTERS
