WMR has received additional details in the case of the Tinners family, long suspected of being key members in the CIA's counter-nuclear proliferation team and cooperating elements for the outed Brewster Jennings & Associates CIA front company.

On May 31, 2006, WMR reported, "the Swiss Federal Prosecutor's Office has complained to the United States that the Bush administration has failed to cooperate with Switzerland's efforts to track the A Q Khan  nuclear proliferation network. The Bush administration's multiple refusals to assist Switzerland in probing the Khan network, which was a major target of the CIA's Counter-Proliferation Division, Brewster Jennings Associates, and Valerie Plame Wilson, was revealed by former UN weapons inspector David Albright. Switzerland arrested three members of the Tinner family -- Friedrich, Urs, and Marco -- for illegally supplying centrifuges from a Malaysian company to Libya. Urs Tinner has been rumored to have been a U.S. intelligence asset."

On February 19, 2008: "WMR has now learned from Swiss sources that last November, the Swiss Federal Council, the Budesrat, passed a secret resolution to destroy critical evidence in the Tinner case. Among the documents ordered destroyed were plans and drawings involving nuclear weapons. The documents had been seized by Swiss prosecutors in their case against the Tinners.

WMR has further learned that the Bush administration put pressure on the Swiss to cease their prosecution of the Tinners and destroy all the evidence seized."

WMR has now learned that the documents in question have been destroyed by the Swiss government. After revelations in the press (including WMR) about the documents, the Swiss government passed a secret resolution authorizing the destruction of the documents.

Socialist member of the Swiss Nationalrat Andre Daguet has tabled a question on the documents. He wants to know whether the documents have, in fact, been destroyed and when they were destroyed.

The documents reportedly contained the methods by which the CIA paid the Tinners.
