St Helena : St Helena: ATTORNEY GENERAL KEN BADDON
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 13.08.2013 (Article Archived on 03.09.2013)

ATTORNEY
GENERAL KEN BADDON



 



 Ken Baddon, St Helena’s
Attorney General, has informed the Governor that he will be leaving his post -
at a date yet to be decided - after October this year. Ken also made this known
to ExCo today.

 



Ken said:



 



“A year or so ago, I agreed
with the Governor that I would stay in office for a further year after the end
of my then current contract, which ended in October 2012, and perhaps then for
a year beyond that.



 



“After nine consecutive
years, I feel a growing sense that I owe some time to my aging mother in
England. I need to be somewhere from where I can get home faster and more
frequently – to spend time with her, and also with my son and my Partner.



 



“I have therefore agreed
with the Governor that I will stay for a short time beyond October of this
year, but not for a further year.



 



“I have enjoyed my time here,
the many friendships I have formed, and my work. If it were not so, how could I
have stayed so long? I very much hope that I shall return one day. Perhaps,
unless I return sooner, I will book my place on the first flight into St Helena
international airport.



“Pending my departure,
there is a lot of work to do. I intend to get on with it - and will be making
no further comment about my departure until its date is known.”



 



Governor Mark Capes said:



 



“Since the day I took up my
appointment as Governor of St Helena, Ken has given me consistently first class
advice and support. He is an excellent colleague who has given tremendous
service to the people of St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha.



 



“I’m sure that I speak for
his many friends and colleagues in the public service who will greatly miss his
friendship and expert advice. I am grateful to him for agreeing to my request
to stay on beyond the end of his contract in October, so that we have time to
identify a successor and so ensure a smooth transition.”



 



SHG and the Attorney General will,
later this year, agree a mutually acceptable departure date, at which time it
will be announced.



 



St Helena Government will shortly
begin the process of recruiting Ken’s successor.
