Ex-corruption fighter handed top justice job

A former corruption fighter has been appointed as Western Australia’s new Director of Public Prosecutions, with Robert Owen confirmed in the job he has been acting in since earlier this year.

Mr Owen began his five year tenure as DPP this week, an appointment confirmed by Attorney General John Quigley.

He replaces Amanda Forrester SC, who moved from the bar table to the Supreme Court bench in July this year.

A former police and intelligence officer with the WA Police Force and the Corruption and Crime Commission, Mr Owen was admitted to practice as a lawyer in 2008.
