Vincentian Valston Graham has been confirmed as the new Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in St. Kitts & Nevis, the Attorney General (AG) in that country disclosed on Thursday, September 8.
“Yes Graham has been approved by the Judicial Legal Service Commission as the new Director of Public Prosecution,” St. Kitts AG, Mr Vincent Bryon told The Observer.
Byron said the official announcement will be made shortly. Graham, a native of St. Vincent & the Grenadines and a Belonger, is expected to take up the post in St. Kitts on a two-year contract next month, according to information.
The senior prosecutor, who is known for securing many convictions in high profile cases, has been with the local DPP’s office for close to eight years.
Graham joined the DPP’s office in November 2008 and immediately started to work alongside former Director of Public Prosecutions, Jamaican native Terrance Williams, as a criminal prosecutor in a number of major cases.
The former Inspector of Police then ventured out on his own, leading the prosecution in most of the murder, manslaughter, armed robberies, rape, fraud, money laundering and drug cases, winning the majority.
Graham had also sat in the popular extradition case of Earl ‘Bob’ Hodge and four others in relation to an alleged 13 year-old drug ring between the U.S. and the BVI.
He has been publicly commended by former resident Judge Albert Redhead for his style of prosecuting.
