Is your Conviction Safe? | Kangs Criminal Appeal Solicitors

Share

It has been widely reported in the press that the results of up to ten thousand forensic tests, relating to a wide variety of crimes across forty two police forces may be deficient.

Currently, two leading laboratories, Randox Testing Services and Trimega Laboratories are being investigated by the police and a number of arrests have already been made.

Furthermore, the accuracy and reliability of results from other forensic testing providers are now coming under scrutiny.

Home Office Minister Nick Hurd stated:

‘Most drug tests from RTS between 2013 and 2017 are being treated as potentially unreliable. RTS was mainly commissioned by individual police forces when investigating criminal offences.’

The accuracy of forensic testing is paramount in a wide range of prosecutions involving, for example, driving whilst under the influence of drugs, violent crime offences (including murder) and sexual offences, as convictions for such offences frequently depend upon the results of such tests.
