For a moment, it seemed that the Chartered Institute of Taxation was courting controversy: its latest high-profile member is, according to the man's own press release, 'one of very few fellows, if not the first, to come from a criminal background'.

A old lag who retrained as an accountant while doing porridge, perhaps?

Er, no.

Jonathan Fisher QC is 'one of the country’s leading barristers in fraud and financial crime cases', and now he can also call himself a chartered tax adviser.

Clearly, he has many talents - although being able to choose a literate PR agent obviously isn't one of them.
