Chas, you're not supposed to write your own article :-) This is plainly WP:COI, but as you've not attempted to hide that fact, we can let it pass --gilgongo (talk) 18:02, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Following the deletion discussion, I'm going to do a first pass over this to weed out the worst bits. --gilgongo (talk) 11:41, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
OK done that. I didn't remove much of the actual content apart from this para:

"He is a frequent commentator on issues concerning international criminal and humanitarian law on television, radio and in publications. His trials have been the subject of extensive coverage and review within the international media such as: CNN, The BBC; The Guardian; The Times; the Sunday Times; The Financial Times; The Daily Telegraph; Le Monde; The Washington Post, The New York Times; Vietnam’s VN Express; South Africa’s Sunday Times; The East African Times, and Australia’s Herald Sun."

A fairly casual search for citations on the above "extensive coverage" came up with nothing. If anyone else can find any, you're welcome to try. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gilgongo (talkcontribs) 12:15, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
