BELGIUM – Police are investigating the death of a NATO chief after his body was found in his car under suspicious circumstances.
On December 16th, Yves Chandelon, 62, was found dead in the Belgian town of Andenne with a gunshot wound to the head, only miles from his home and office in Lens.
The gun found at the crime scene did not belong to that of Chandelon, it has been reported.
What is raising suspicion, is the gun which killed him was found in the glove box of his vehicle. Suicide has been ruled out.
Vincent Macq, a local prosecutor, stated that a post-mortem is yet to be carried out.
Former director of The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Luxebourg complained of getting strange telephone calls before he died and “felt threatened,” according to Belgian newspaper group, SudInfo.be.
Mystery continues to shroud his death, with growing concerns about the circumstances of the case and ‘a number of unanswered questions surrounding the strange death.’
Marcq is investigating the fact that ‘Chandelon was responsible for probing terror financing as part of his high ranking job.’ Additionally, Chandelon was responsible for internal accounting at NSPA and external investigations into money laundering activities and terrorist financing, reports Express News.
The report states: ‘Chandelon was employed by the NATO support and procurement agency (NSPA) in Capellen in south-western Luxembourg, 7 miles west of Luxembourg City.’
It has also been reported that he was in Belgium at the time of his death because he was visiting a friend.
It has yet to be determined by Police whether Chandelon received any threats related to his work and could provide evidence as to why the gun used was not registered in his name.
The eve before his death, Chandelon attended his office Christmas party.
