I will not be intimidated, says DPP
The Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn, remains steadfast in her decision to end the Kentucky Kid case saying she refuses to be intimidated.
Speaking at an award ceremony put on by the Department of Correctional Services last night, Llewellyn said she was grateful to INDECOM head, Terrence Williams, for reminding her that she is anointed.
She says the challenges only help to improve her own professionalism and motivate her to continue to do the right thing.
Insisting that she was not throwing barbs at anyone, Llewellyn also told the function that being a public servant was not about being in a popularity contest.
The DPP says her office will not be drawn into doing what is expedient if it believes the course of action it is being asked to take is wrong.
She is also criticising those she calls uninformed commentators who help to form public opinion without knowing all the facts.
However, she says she will continue to speak and send out press releases to explain the actions taken by her office, given that it is accountable to the public.
