Attorney-at-Law Daasrean Greene was officially sworn in as the country’s new Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), this morning at Government House.
Greene, whose contract will last for one year, took the oath of office before Governor General Dame Pearlette Louisy.
He will have the task of deciding on whether to appoint a special prosecutor to deal with both the IMPACS Lambirds cases.
The new DPP will also be responsible for addressing the backlog of court cases that continue to be a major impediment to the local justice system.
Greene has been in legal practice since 1999.
He obtained his legal education from the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol).
He joins Sixtus Stephen Brette, who was appointed acting Deputy DPP on June 20, 2016.
