Fernand Spaak, a Bilderberg participant, was a Belgian lawyer and diplomat who was shot dead in 1981.

Background

Fernand Spaak was son of Paul-Henri Spaak.

Death

Spaak was reportedly shot dead in his flat in Brussels in 1981 by his estranged wife with a hunting rifle; she had previously threatened to kill him on a number of occasions. She then replaced the rifle in its bag and committed suicide by electrocuting herself with an electric iron in a bath.[1]

At the time of his death, Spaak was chief of staff for Gaston Thorn, then president of the European Commission.[1]
