The offices of the Director of Public Prosecutions have relocated to the Cayman Financial Centre Building on Dr. Roy’s Drive known as Bermuda House.
As of 1 July, the office ceased to occupy the dms Building. The decision to move the office of the DPP to the new location and not the new Government Administration building was addressed by the office in response to an FOI filed by the Caymanian Compass.
“……. We have conducted an extensive and diligent search of the records held by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and we did not locate any records which relate to your request. Notwithstanding this, decisions regarding accommodations at the Government Administration Building were taken at a Cabinet level,” said DPP Information Manager Marilyn Brandt.
Acting Governor Franz Manderson, during the 20 August Throne Speech, stated that the office of the DPP had completed the process of physical separation. Officials at the Office of the DPP said no official press release was sent out regarding the move because the information had already been in the public domain via Mr. Manderson’s Throne Speech. The Office did email the heads of various law firms informing them of its relocation.
The cost of the move to Bermuda House, inclusive of office supplies, furniture and renovations was listed as $134,662.27.
