ADMISSIBILITY OF RESULTING FINGERPRINT EVIDENCE

[2013] UKSC 32 [2013] UKSC 32

Parliament had not intended, by enacting the Police and Criminal Evidence (Northern Ireland) Order 1989 art.61(8B), that a failure by the secretary of state to authorise an electronic fingerprinting device for use meant that any fingerprint evidence obtained as a result of using of such a device was automatically inadmissible.
