Dear Sir or Madam,
On the 4th of December 2008 the European Court of Human Rights has
delivered at a public hearing its Grand Chamber judgement in the
case of S. and Marper v. the United Kingdom (application nos.30562/04 and 30566/04).
The Court held unanimously that:
· "there had been a violation of Article 8 (right to respect for
private and family life) of the European Convention on Human
Rights;" with regards to the UK goverment holding DNA and
fingerprints on innocent people.
As the UK goverment has lost its case and was found to be
unlawfully holding DNA and fingerprint details of innocent people i
wish to know the following
As of the 4th of December 2008
1: How many DNA and fingerprint samples of innocent people have deleted ?
2: How many innocent people requested their DNA and fingerprint samples be deleted?
3: If no DNA and fingerprint samples have been deleted i wish to know the reasons WHY as the UK Goverment have been found to be in breach of innocent peoples human rights and this would be considered a crime in itself.
4: As there is no right of appeal from a final decision made by the Grand Chamber when will your police force be routinely be deleting records of innocent people ?
Dear Mr Anderson
Please see the attached.
