One would expect that if evidence is found and used as part of a legal/criminal proceeding then some sort of destruction order on the device could be appended to the matter - certainly this could be the case in the UK.

To be honest though, you should ask one of the lawyers or legal advisors in your Government Organisation. They will be better placed to advise you on this matter.

Rule #1: NEVER work on the original SSD, work on a binary copy!

At this point your evidence is void, because it's data was modified after the date of the seizure! How can you prove now that whatever is found on the disk, it wasn't you who put it there ?!
