Acting Attorney General Angelo Berbotto, was today appointed and sworn in as Attorney General for St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. Angelo took the Prescribed Oaths of Office in the presence of HE Governor Lisa Phillips (see two photos attached).
Angelo said of his appointment:
“Since stepping up as Acting Attorney General four months ago, it has been a steep learning curve – but along the way I have found nothing but encouragement from colleagues, Elected Members and SHG officers. I am backed by a fantastic and committed team in the AG’s Chambers who are not afraid of challenges.
“It is an honour to be appointed Attorney General of St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, and I am committed to doing my very best in this important role.”
Her Excellency Governor Phillips added:
“I am delighted to have sworn in Angelo Berbotto this morning as our new Attorney General, and I know that he will do a brilliant job.”
