EU Human Rights Ruling over DNA database

A 2009 EU court ruling challenged police powers to keep DNA samples indefinitely after an arrest.  It was backed by politicians, such as David Davies MP and LibDem leader Nick Clegg. I deliberately sought the view of rape survivor and victims’ campaigner, Jill Saward, who explained the crucial missing human rights perspective: that of victims of unsolved, violent crimes.  She went on to stand against David Davies in a by-election he triggered, in protest over his stance. She was a modest, principled campaigner all her life and I admired her greatly. She died on January 5th 2017.
