Miss Kathy-Ann Pyke, Jamaican attorney, has resigned her post prior to the end of her contract, in undisclosed circumstances as a Government House press release suggests as of December 31, 2013.

 A three-line press release from Government House signed by Governor Adrian Davis, under caption Director of public prosecutions, states: “Ms Kathy-Ann Pyke resigned her position as DPP on 31 December 2013, by mutual agreement. Mr Oris Sullivan will take over as DPP, in an acting capacity for six months initially.”

 Miss Pyke who became the first Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in Montserrat, is resigning after two years and three months following her appointment in October, 2011.

 Governor Davis although stating from time to time his reliance on the independent decisions of the DPP is known to be sympathetic to outside opinions on the DPPs decisions.  TMR received information that the Governor involved the Jamaica police force as he questioned the veracity of Miss Pyke’s ill health which we know followed a vehicle accident in Jamaica, where she was a passenger.

 Indirect sources had revealed that Miss Pyke had been subjected to ‘undisclosed’ pressures from her superiors.

Miss Pyke who is still on island has declined comment.
