REAL NEWS: Former Crown Counsel Adlai Smith has been appointed to lead public prosecutions in St. Kitts and Nevis, a reliable source tells REAL News.

Smith is said to have applied for the position – which had been advertised on the Regional Judicial and Legal Services Commissionwebsite – among other persons.

The source says he was interviewed in July and has since been informed that he is the successful applicant.

Reportedly, Smith will soon leave Antigua to take up his new post in St. Kitts, creating a vacancy in the Law Reform office.

In St. Kitts he will work in close cooperation with another Antiguan:

LaToya Lake, who has been head of that country’s forensics department for the past three years or so.

Interestingly, the source says, Smith had also applied for the post of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) here, in Antigua and Barbuda – but his application, reportedly, was never even acknowledged bythe relevant authorities.

Insiders allege that Smith was snubbed because of previous tensions between him and former DPP Anthony Armstrong and the resulting polarization of the staff, which led to him being transferred.
