Saad Al-Hilli the man murdered in SE France, along with his wife and her mother, worked at Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, in Guildford’s research park, near the Royal Surrey County Hospital.

The CEO of  the company, Dr Matt Perkins,  issued the following statement:

“I am deeply shocked and saddened to confirm that one of SSTL’s long-term contractors, Saad Al-Hilli, has been formally identified as one of the victims of the shootings which occurred in the French Alps.

“Saad worked at SSTL as a Mechanical Design Engineer from November 2010. Saad’s colleagues will remember him as an experienced and committed engineer who worked as part of a tightly knit team. He was a personal friend to many of our staff here.

“Saad will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult and traumatic time. We are a close family at SSTL and our staff are understandably very upset by this event. I ask the media to respect their privacy as they come to terms with this terrible news.”
