Kirk Anderson will be new D.P.P.
Local attorney Kirk Anderson has been appointed as Belize’s new Director of Public Prosecutions. Anderson will assume the high-pressure post come May first. In a brief telephone interview with News 5, the attorney says as soon as he takes over, he will be meeting with the staff to outline his plans for the department. He declined an on camera interview, stating that only after he takes up office will he be able to discuss his new job. Anderson, who as a high profile criminal attorney, has taken some extremely adversarial positions with the police, will now have to work closely with them on major cases. Anderson assumes the post from former D.P.P. Rory Field.
