Police to review 484 cases after criminal probe launched at private forensics laboratory
This affects police work involving toxicology in the UK. The years since demobilization of the government owned Forensic Science Service have not been nice. Standards “have been slipping” ever since. I’m wondering what the UK Forensic Regulator’s auditors have to say about this.
“Two men have been arrested by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) over allegations that some 484 cases handled by Randox Testing Services (RTS) were affected by what the the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) called “data manipulation”.
It raised the prospect that hundreds of people could have been the victims of miscarriages of justice because of convictions based on incorrect test results in their cases.”
