Career

Allan Green was called to the bar in 1959 and became a recorder (part-time judge) in 1979. After a successful career as a prosecution counsel, he was appointed Director of Public Prosecutions in 1987. In this role he was responsible for the majority of criminal prosecutions in England, and in his term of office he had to deal with the appeals against conviction of the Guildford Four and the Birmingham Six. He resigned in October 1991 when he was spotted kerb-crawling in Kings Cross, London.[1] His wife committed suicide in 1993, two years later.
