Crown Council Leaving DPP’s Office In Numbers Explaination Is Needed Says Scott Pearman OBA

The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (“DPP”) is a fundamental Constitutional Office that is essential to our Island.  


The office of the DPP is responsible for prosecuting all criminal cases in Bermuda on behalf of the Crown.  Simply put, the DDP prosecutes criminals on behalf the people of Bermuda. 


Although unconfirmed, the news of significant resignations at the DPP requires an immediate explanation.  The public needs to be assured this issue is being given the most urgent attention. 


This alarming news comes at a time when there is already a considerable backlog on prosecuting criminal cases in Bermuda. 


The stability and integrity of the office of the DPP is a matter of extreme importance to all Bermudians.  The Public needs to be informed what exactly has happened, why it happened, and how concerns at the DPP will be swiftly resolved?
