Attorney-General Nicola Roxon thanked Craigie for his distinguished service following his announcement that he would not seek re-appointment when his term expires in October.

Craigie has made a significant contribution to the Commonwealth’s criminal justice system and the Australian community since he was appointed as CDPP in October 2007.

During his tenure, the office of the CDPP has had notable successes in relation to the prosecution of complex matters, including the enforcement of terrorism, anti-money laundering, drug-trafficking, people-smuggling and child exploitation laws.  

"Over the past five years, Mr Craigie has provided dedicated leadership to his office and delivered prosecution services of the highest quality to the Australian community,” said Roxon on Thursday (August 9).

Under the guidance of Craigie, the office has also contributed significantly to the development of criminal law policy at a federal level.

“On behalf of the Australian people, the Government extends its gratitude to Mr Craigie for his contribution to Australian criminal law and wishes him all the best for the future,” said Roxon.

The Government will shortly advertise for the appointment of the next CDPP
