SIMON Corbell has congratulated Jon White on his elevation by the ACT Bar Association to Senior Counsel.
“I congratulate Mr White on his appointment as a Senior Counsel in the ACT,” Simon said.
“As Director of Public Prosecutions Mr White has handled numerous high-profile cases, including murder trials, and he is thoroughly deserving of this recognition.
“Mr White has successfully taken the DPP through a period of significant change, and has worked to ensure prosecutions occur as promptly as possible, including through the moving of resources to front line prosecution services.
“Under his leadership, the DPP has played a significant role in supporting intensive criminal listing processes before the Supreme Court, which has significantly reduced the number of cases with long waiting times.”
