The European Court of Human Rights ruled that the blanket policy currently in place in the UK for retention of DNA and fingerprint samples is not legal for non-convicted persons, let alone those just offering up a sample to help in a particular case. The implications of keeping this data when it should be destroyed could be catastrophic for both the police and the government, as people will be less willing to offer up samples to assist in elimination of suspicion after reading stories such as this one.
