I congratulate Mr Moraitis PSM on his appointment as Director-General of the Office of the Special Investigator.
Mr Moraitis brings his extensive public sector background to this important new role.
He has been Secretary of the Attorney-General’s Department since September 2014 and immediately before being appointed to lead my department, he had a long and distinguished career in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, including serving as Australia’s High Commissioner to Papua New Guinea between 2006-2009 and diplomatic postings in Paris, Madrid and Geneva.
I thank Mr Moraitis for the support he has provided me since I was appointed Attorney-General in December 2017 and for his very significant and much appreciated contribution to the Government. This period has been particularly intensive with major Government reforms and, since the last election, adding industrial relations to the department’s functions.
I wish Mr Moraitis every success in his new role.
