Commenting on the news that data relating to more than 6,000 samples tested at Randox Testing Service’s Manchester site may have been manipulated, criminal defence lawyer Nick Freeman, aka Mr Loophole, said:
“My worst fears have now been realised. I said last time that this could be the tip of the iceberg. Once a Government approved organisation or its employees, has been found to have manipulated data, their credibility is shot, and every case in which they have been involved in forensic analysis should be the subject of an urgent review.
“In my opinion, the starting point now must be a thorough re-examination of the forensic results in all cases where the conviction of the defendant relied on the results of tests carried out at Randox’s Manchester site.
“It is imperative that justice must be seen to be done and any Government approved supplier must be seen to be above reproach.”
On February 20, the Crown Prosecution discontinued a drug driving case after Mr Freeman’s firm challenged the results of a blood sample sent to the private business.
That decision came just 24 hours after two employees at Randox were arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
