The auditor general of NATO was found dead under mysterious circumstances earlier this month. The body of 62-year-old Yes Chandelon was found with a gunshot wound to the head on December 16th in the Belgian town of Andenne, 62 miles away from his home in Lens. A local paper says that while Chandelon was the legal owner of three guns, the weapon found at the scene was not registered to him.
News outlets in the area are sharing reports of Chandelon’s family being concerned about the circumstances surrounding the death. Initial reports that it was a suicide are being ruled out as another local paper reported that the gun which they believe was used in the incident was found in the glovebox. There are also reports that Chandelon had received strange phone calls and “felt threatened” before he turned up dead.
An investigation into the death is being conducted and authorities are looking into the possible connection that Chandelon’s position at the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) could have garnered him some enemies. As auditor general at NSPA, Chandelon was responsible for internal accounting as well as external investigations looking into terrorist financing and money laundering.
