cantankerous is always interested in the background of lawyers in the news. Interesting, isn’t it, that Jon Chapman, the News International Director of Legal Affairs, to whom the correspondence in Robert Peston’s ‘smoking gun’ News of the World police corruption scoop is addressed, worked as a senior in-house solicitor at Enron from 1996 until its bankruptcy in late 2001? From the Enron Scandal to the News International phone hacking and police corruption scandal. An impressive CV, indeed. Any predictions of where Jon Chapman will work next?
UPDATE: The Daily Telegraph reports that Jon Chapman has already left News International. It will be fascinating to see how Jon Chapman manages to further improve his already impressive CV. Let cantankerous know if you have any idea where he is now.
