Failing to supply sufficient breath, applications for extensions of custody, and affidavits opposing bail were some of the issues discussed during a talanoa session with the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The session was an opportunity for prosecutors from the police and other agencies as well as private practitioners to discuss issues with the DPP and legal officers from the ODPP.
The session concluded the formal workshop that was attended by twenty-six participants from the Police Summary Prosecutions Division and eighteen law enforcement agents from the Lautoka City Council, the Civil Aviation Authority, the Maritime SafetyAuthority and members of the private bar.
DPP, Christopher Pryde, says they remain committed to raising standards in prosecutions.
The ODPP also conducts 6-week basic and advanced prosecution courses each year.
