Do we know exactly what happend with these cases? Were there errors within the forensic process or within the wider investigation? We need to ensure that mistakes made possibly elsewhere do not reflect on the topic of forensics.


Of course we don't know what happened, we have only what has been reported by the media based (hopefully) on statements by the Police, the Prosecution or the defense.

In one case the procedure of collecting digital evidence was (as said reportedly and IMHO ) well beyond "common sense" and "professionalism":
www.dailymail.co.uk/ne...under.html

The Mail on Sunday has seen a witness statement from the officer leading the investigation, saying the messages were obtained by asking the accuser to log in to Facebook and print them off. ‘I made sure that no messages were missed,’ he said. At no point did the officer cross-reference the accuser’s version of the conversation with Mr Kay’s archived messages.



In the other it may have been an accident (as well anyway IMHO beyond "common sense" and "diligence"), :

www.independent.co.uk/...60816.html

Mr Makele consistently denied the charge and said sex with the woman was consensual, but an initial request to see the photographs was turned down.

Paris Theodorou, Mr Makele’s solicitor, said prosecutors told his team that apart from selected text messages nothing else on the defendant’s phone could be disclosed.

Oops, sorry, I was referring to the dropped rape cases, that seemingly are not connected to not conforming to a given procedure, but more to "no (proper) procedure whatsoever".

No worries, it just seems that she is using Randox as an example of why she should have statutory powers to force labs to hold ISO 17025 when it clearly didn't help in this scenario.

Agreed. The Guardian and FSR have taken issues from different forensic fields and mixed them into one big cluster... Rolling Eyes
