Attorney at Law, Daasrean Greene, has been appointed Director of Public Prosecutions.
Greene succeeds Victoria Charles Clarke who retired in March this year.
The new DPP has confirmed his appointment, but says he will make a formal statement on his new post at a later date following his official swearing in.
“I have not been formally sworn in – at that time we will discuss all the issues etc,” Greene said.
Prime Minister Allen Chastanet earlier today said he was looking forward to meeting with the new DPP this morning.
Chastanet reiterated that the two main priorities for his new administration are justice and security.
“I am hoping the DPP – because it is his decision as to whether we can bring in a Special Prosecutor, but I will try to encourage him as much as possible to bring in a Special Prosecutor not only to deal with the IMPACS case but I also believe that we are going to need help on the Lambirds case,” the Prime Minister disclosed.
Daasreean Greene has been a practicing criminal lawyer since December 1999.
He studied at the University of the West Of England and is a member of Lincoln’s Inn of England.
The new DPP will take up his appointment on October 17, 2016.
His contract is for one year.
