Governor’s Office just now confirmed that John Masters, Director of Public has resigned; left the country and staff was unaware of the event.
At least one member of the TCI Bar Council this morning gives comment. Mark Fulford of F Chambers in essence said good riddance to Masters who had been wreaking havoc on the Office.
Fulford last week called for John Masters to resign; he said he is happy John Masters agreed to vacate the post.
Complaints, alleged retaliatory transfers, forced resignations, reported staff demotions, brazen cronyism and alleged victimisation were all exposed from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. The stream of reports led to an investigation, which was ongoing, by the Integrity Commission.
The Premier opted not to comment heavily on the investigation when asked. Only that ‘something’ was coming in the case.
H.E.’s Office today said simply, “The DPP has resigned for personal reasons and had left the TCI. A release to that effect will be issued later today by TCIG press office.”
John Masters, originally from Australia, took up the post April 2015. He had worked in the UK and Cayman Islands with 27 years experience.
