Basic Prosecution Course for Statutory Regulators

May 7, 2018 11:00 pm

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has for the first time organized training for statutory regulators in its continuous effort to improve the prosecution service.

The Course is designed for regulatory and statutory bodies with the aim of equipping these officers with basic trial preparation skills in prosecuting matters under their legislation.

Since 2011 various laws have been enacted that give individual regulatory bodies the power to prosecute matters under their own legislation.

The ODPP provides assistance to regulatory prosecutors by advising on charges and providing basic training throughout the year.

Thirty-nine officers are attending the one month course at the Ministry of Civil Service Training Centre, Nasese, Suva.
