Abstract
This paper analyses various international guidelines on the role of a Public Prosecutor and on
the basis of these tries to give a picture of what the responsibilities and duties of a Public
Prosecutor in Pakistan could involve, using the case of the province of Khyber
Pukhtunkhwa. The paper concludes that the role of the Public Prosecutor is not to seek
conviction at all cost but to place before the court all the evidence.
