New PPS director appointed (UTV)
Former solicitor Barra McGrory QC has been appointed the new Director of Public Prosecutions for Northern Ireland.
Mr McGrory was previously a partner in a solicitor’s firm founded by his late father, Paddy McGrory – who represented the families of those killed in Gibraltar, including Mairead Farrell.
After working in criminal law, he became the first solicitor in Northern Ireland to be appointed as a QC.
On Monday Mr McGrory, a fluent Gaelic speaker, said:
“The Public Prosecution Service is at the core of the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland and leading it at this important time will be a great privilege.”
The appointment of a DPP has been the responsibility of Northern Ireland’s Attorney General John Larkin, since the devolution of policing and justice powers to the region in 2010.
Mr Larkin said: “I look forward to working with Barra as he leads the Public Prosecution Service through the challenges it faces in the years ahead.
“It is only right that I take this opportunity to pay tribute to Barra’s predecessor Sir Alasdair Fraser QC and the previous Acting Director Jim Scholes; both of whom are public servants of immense ability and dedication.”
