Former Crown Counsel and head of law reform in the Ministry of Legal Affairs Adlai Smith has been promoted to a high position in another Caribbean Country.
Smith will be traveling to St Kitts and Nevis at some point to occupy the post of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)
His application, according to the Kittian media was submitted through the Regional Judicial and Legal Services Commission’s website, and underwent a rigorous selection process, culminating in a successful interview conducted in July.
His imminent move from Antigua to St. Kitts represents a significant moment in Antigua’s legal landscape, they said
It was also noted that in the past Smith had previously applied for the DPP position in Antigua and Barbuda.
However, reports suggest that his application received no response.
In the new role, Smith will work closely with another experienced Antiguan, LaToya Lake, who has been overseeing St. Kitts and Nevis’ forensics department for the past three years.
