[] – Guyanese born Attorney Arudranauth Gossai, has been appointed Acting Director of Public Prosecutions for St. Kitts and Nevis.

At age 36, Mr. Gossai is believed to be that country’s youngest DPP and was admitted to practice in the Bars of Guyana in 2004.

He previously served as the Crown Counsel in the Attorney General’s Chambers in St. Kitts.

According to reports out of that country, he has been appointed to act in the post for three months.  He made his first appearance at Court in his new position on Thursday.

A graduate of the Hugh Wooding Law School, the Guyanese born Gossai worked in St. Kitts and Nevis’ Attorney’s General’s Chambers from 2005 – 2012. 

During his stint as Crown Counsel, he also served as a member of the legal team representing the government, on several high profile ‘political’ cases.

He moved into private practice in 2012 working as an Associate Attorney with Gonsalves Parry.

Mr. Gossai has served as Counsel to the National AIDS Secretariat, and in various capacities with the Saint Christopher and Nevis Bar Association; he is currently a member of the Association’s Disciplinary Committee.  [West Indies News Network]  



  1. Yes indeed! It’s the human race. It would have been better if you asked what is the ethnic composition of that small Caribbean territory. I visited there several times as I have Guyanese friends who are teachers working in different schools in different areas

  2. I was one of the guyanese policemen that went to St. Kitts in 1968 and my guess is that your brother was Leslie Brooks. However there were only 13 of us in that first batch.

  3. The brilliant minds of Guyanese..St.Kitts and the other Caribbean Islands have always shown respect and appreciation of our Guyanese profession and legal minds ..My brother was among the first batch of 60 Guyanese policemen consigned to the St.Kitts/Nevis Police in 1968..followed by attorney Odell Adams as DPP…There are presently several Guyanese appointed as High Court Judges and Magistrates in Antigua Grenada and other parts of the Caribbean…Guyanese always shine any part of the world..where they reside..

  4. Mr Gossai must further his career outside of Guyana once the opportunities present themselves. His name alone will be the biggest stumbling block to get into high judicial office in Guyana under this APNU/AFC administration. Ethnic cleansing/ discrimination are well entrenched and alive.
