Dear Home Secretary,
1. Please advise what Home Office advice has been given to chief officers of police to implement immediately changes in their procedures with regard to the harvesting of DNA samples and other SPD from innocent persons (those not charged with any offence) to make such procedures compliant with UKSC judgment 21 of 18th May 2011, which clarifies the law stare decisis to conform to ECHR, pending any potntial change in legislation.
2. If no advice has been given, please advise the reason for not advising chief officers of police to comply with the law, and to desist and refrain from harvesting the DNA and other SPD of persons not charged with any offence.
3. As UKSC 21 clearly points up the unlawful nature of advice to chief officers of police as given to them by their private limited company messrs ACPO Ltd, what action is in contemplation to proscribe this iniquitous ultra vires cabal of public servants?
Please find attached our response to your FOI Request.
