I doubt if Herge would have given a sympathetic character like Skut a dubious background such as being a Nazi collaborator. Other such characters are shown to be on the side of the villains: the submarine commander in "Red Sea Sharks", or Hans Boehm, the sunglasses-wearing pilot in "Flight 714" or Doctor Krollspell from the same story.

To be fair, Hergé himself was considered a Nazi collaborator, as he did work for a Nazi-controlled newspaper during the war. So maybe Skut had briefly worked for Nazis without being a Nazi? We simply don't know.
