Burney joins prosecutions

FORMER British lawyer Lee Burney was appointed as the fourth assistant director of public prosecutions in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Director of Public Prosecution Christopher Pryde said Mr Burney added value to the ODPP team with his experience of over 20 years in private practice and public service.

"Mr Burney brings with him considerable criminal advocacy experience. Before embarking on a career in public service with the British Army Legal Services, where he was prosecuting cases at home and abroad, he practised private law in Hong Kong for 15 years," Mr Pryde said yesterday.

Mr Burney, originally from England, graduated in Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 1988 and is admitted to practise law in England and Hong Kong.

"It is a great privilege to join the dedicated team at the ODPP and to serve the people of Fiji. I am particularly looking forward to assisting in the progressive professional development of the talented team of prosecutors within the office," he said.
