Letter: Company man

DAVID HELLIER's report 'Tiny keeps heat on Bock' (Business, 23 January) states that ' 'Tiny' Rowland has sent his personal head of security, Ken Etheridge, to Germany in what is believed to be part of a widening investigation by Lonrho into the affairs of joint chief executive Dieter Bock.'

I am Lonrho's head of security and not Mr Rowland's, I have not been asked to investigate the affairs of Mr Bock, and I have not travelled to Germany for more than five years.
