Stephan Adolph Kock, who was one of their special arms consultants, was, said Weaver on that occasion, 'a man with influence and contacts at the highest level, including Mrs Thatcher'.
...
(Stephan Kock, a shadowy character associated with Shell and said to be an MI6 agent, became a director of Astra and was instrumental in the supply of unlawful arms sold to Iran and Iraq.)

EXTRACT FROM PAGE 151

I asked him which major companies he had been connected with, and he mentioned Biddle Holdings and Shell Oil, which had been on the Midland brochure, and bluffed his way through, saying he had been connected with so many.

EXTRACT FROM PAGE 153 & 154

'Following his retirement from the army', the Midland brochure continues, Kock 'was for a period International Director for a major international Dutch mining and manufacturing group and subsequently again as International Director for the Shell Oil Company … '

But this is not strictly true either. As he was forced to admit to the DTI Select Committee, he was in fact a director of a metals mining company called Billiton, a Shell subsidiary known to provide 'retirement' posts for Intelligence officers. Kock was far from retired, however; for according to information he supplied for an internal Astra newsletter, at the very same time he 'carried out special assignments for the Foreign Office.'

F3.19 Astra Holdings plc ( Astra ) completed its acquisition of PRB on 11 September 1989. * 14 Stephan Kock was a non-executive director of Astra at the time of the acquisition. * 15 According to Mr Kock's evidence to TISC , he went with others to visit the PRB plants in Belgium on 19/20 September 1989.At the PRB plant at Kaulile he was told by the manager that PRB were involved in exporting unusual propellants. * 16 Mr Kock reported the matter to colleagues in the company and discussed it with them.He also says that he telephoned the intelligence services on 22 September 1989. * 17 He next came down to London from his home in Scotland on 11 October 1989 and made a full report.Intelligence documents confirm that Mr Kock telephoned from Scotland to ask for an urgent meeting.Intelligence documents also suggest that on 10 October , a preliminary meeting was held with Mr Kock at which he mentioned the take-over by Astra of PRB and suggested that PRB's books indicated some shady dealings in the past.It appears that the preliminary meeting was soon followed by another meeting.The source report on the meeting records the following information :.

PRB of Belgium

1. The British arms firm ASTRA Holdings has recently acquired a wholly owned subsidiary in Belgium ‘PRB sa'.
...
F3.20 Quite independently of Mr Kock , other information was simultaneously put forward by Astra for the consideration of the British authorities.
...
F3.27 In early November 1989 , a meeting was arranged at the Grantham offices of BMARC which was attended by Gerald James , Stephan Kock , an SAS officer and Mr Q. Evidence given to TISC by Mr James was that the objective alleged [ of the meeting ] was to look at equipment purchases.
...
Mr Kock has confirmed to the Inquiry that , subject to two points , the minutes of his evidence to TISC have been accurately recorded , although he does also say that some of the questions put to him were based on assumption or incorrect evidence by others.

* 16 - Evidence to TISC ( Mr Kock ) : HC 86-xii : Questions 3044-3060 ; 3116-3119.I have already referred ( supra ) to a propellant contract between PRB and the Royal Jordanian Armed Forces.

Stephen Kock served on the Special Air Services (SAS) Rhodesian C squadron, worked as an advisor to the Rhodesian prime minister, served in Malay during the Malay insurgency, worked as director of the international Dutch mining and manufacturing group and as the international director for Shell Oil. He was a central figure in the Malaysian arms deal at the center of the Pergau Dam scandal, worked as an advisor/consultant for Midland BankÕs Defense Equipment Finance Department (DEFD), established to finance arms deals.

In a letter dated June 16, 1989, on Midland Bank stationary, sent from Kock to Mohammed Hashemi, a representative of the Iranian Defense Ministry and of Tagell UK Limited, a major company working with Astra in the arms trade to Iraq and Iran, consultant Kock reassures Hashemi high level British officials, including Lord Peter Levene, were "making sure" the CATIC arms contract to the Middle East would "proceed smoothly."

Let me assure you that the UK government at the highest possible level regards the contract with CATIC as important and has taken steps to endure that matters proceed smoothly to completion," wrote Kock in the business letter, a copy of which sent to the Arctic Beacon.

Kock signed the letter as a consultant, citing Lord Levene's sanction of the PGS to China and then to Iran.

Besides the correspondence explaining Kock's role in the Middle East arms deals, copies of an MI6 internal memo, tracking Kock's every move after his duties were completed, show just how concerned British intelligence was in the early 1990's to keep Kock silent and from talking to the press.

This secret intelligence service memo, obtained by the Arctic Beacon depicts, Kock as a longtime reliable agent, but at the time of the writing MI6 officials were concerned that he turned into somewhat of a loose canon.

"Kock has been an enthusiastic and effective agent.

"Between September 1987 and January 1990 we met Kock periodically in London.For the most part, this contact was instigated by Kock and entailed him reporting on various arms-related matters…In October 1989 he volunteered information on the involvement of the Belgium company PRB, recently bought by Astra, in the supply of propellants for the Iraqi supergun project.

"This involvement antedated Astra's purchase of the company but we believe it relevant to the DTI inquiry into Astra which is referred to in the press.Elements of Kock's reporting were included in material about the "supergun circulated to government departments at the time by SIS.

"According to his account, Kock's role in relation to the Astra Holdings/PRB business was creditable…

"In January 1990 Kock was involved in a shooting incident outside his home in Scotland.
