Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde says the late Assistant DPP, Mosese Korovou was a quietly comforting and supportive presence in the office; always available to listen, always available to advise and always available to assist.
While giving the eulogy yesterday at late Korovou’s funeral, Pryde says Korovou was a mentor to many.
Pryde says Korovou rendered advice and appeared in court on a huge number of important and seminal appeal cases.
The DPP adds Korovou represented the State in a great many cases and at all levels of the criminal justice system adding he was respected by defence counsel and judiciary alike for his acumen, his ability, his intelligence, his judgment, and his professionalism in court.
Korovou started his career as a legal officer in the ODPP 18 years ago.
Korovou passed away last Saturday and was laid to rest yesterday.
