    Who was the Belgian judicial adviser — King Leopold II?

    Oh yes it is!

    When my son was young we read all the Tintin books together (well, he was five, I read to him). I’ve read through the Congo book to the best of my French abilities (there’s no English edition, thank god), and it’s utterly appalling.

    Good one, Tom–the ghost of King Leopold II must be haunting judicial corridors in Belgium.
