The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) was first established in the 1964 Constitution. The constitutional reforms which were on the agenda at the time, had provided for the conversion of the post of Procureur General into that of an Attorney General. However, the power of the Procureur to prosecute crime was vested in the newly created post of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) which, it was agreed, would be independent of the political executive. This was made clear in the Constitution which expressly provided that in the exercise of his power, the Director of Public Prosecutions shall not be subject to the direction or control of any other person or authority.
