His Excellency the Governor, Martyn Roper, OBE is pleased to announce the appointment of Patrick Moran as the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The Judicial and Legal Services Commission (the “JLSC”) recently carried out an open recruitment process advertising the post both locally and overseas. Following a short-listing process, an interview panel interviewed a number of candidates for this post ultimately recommending Mr. Moran as the successful candidate. His Excellency subsequently accepted the recommendation.
“Mr. Moran brings to the post the necessary skills, experiences, and passion for criminal law and prosecutions generally” His Excellency said. “His tenure as Acting Director of Public Prosecutions over the last year has inspired confidence in his capacity to discharge the responsibilities of the post efficiently and effectively and to act in the public’s best interest”.
Mr. Moran’s appointment is effective 1 December 2019 for a three year period.
