British Oil Executive Murdered In Belgium

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/belgium/9635407/Police-hunt-two-men-after-oil-chief-assassinated-in-Brussels-street.html

 

Interesting story with few details.  But I thought this part of the news story was noteworthy:

The Belgian prosecutor’s office said last night that there was a “judicial instruction” from Martine Quintin, the investigating judge, that meant they could give no “explanation” and no detail about the killing.

“This is usual in such a serious murder investigation,” a spokesman said.

Ordered to give no details . . . this is usual . . .in a serious murder investigation.  As opposed to an un-serious murder investigation, I suppose.

If the assailants are street muggers, I would think that a wide broadcast of details would be valuable in the cause of apprehending them.  If hit men, likewise.  

Unless somebody wants to be sure whose hitmen are involved.
