Peter Judge MBE has been named as the next Attorney General of the Falkland Islands. Mr Judge, who is scheduled to arrive in March 2014, will succeed current Attorney General Mark Lewis.

 Mr Judge has been a lawyer for more than 17 years with substantial experience working with governments, as well as leading teams and major projects. He has previously served as Executive Director of Legal Services & Procurement and Group Company Secretary for One North East, the development agency for North East England.

Peter comes to FIG from Durham University, where he served as the University's first independent University Secretary, and has project-managed a major review of the University's governance arrangements.

Deputy Governor Sandra Tyler-Haywood said “There was a strong field of candidates, it was pleasing to see the interest, not just from the UK but from other Commonwealth countries in working in the Islands. Mr Judge showed strong skills and experience across a range of areas. His appointment is good news for the Falklands.”

Mr Judges's wife, Candice, will join him in the Islands later in the year, as the family are expecting their second child in late May 2014. (PN).-

    You can just imagine the likes of Marcos, et al, asking WTF is an Attorney General?

    Compliance with the Legal system of the country is an alien concept to them.
