He must have missed out on the Halliburton job

The "Last Word" column in the Saturday edition of The Dominion Post is a regular repository for quirky items, often reader-submitted. I'm sure the type is common to many newspapers. This entry from the 19 June edition caught my eye.
We couldn't help but notice a member of ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's legal team is none other than Giovanni di Stefano, last seen in these parts when he was exposed as a British conman after arriving in Auckland in 1990, claiming to have $100 million to invest in real estate. Before gaining Saddam as a client, di Stefano was living in Belgrade where he claimed as "good friends" another now-former dictator, ex-Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic, and another butcher, the infamous Serbian warlord Arkan, aka Zeljko Raznatovic. He sure gets around.
