Posted July 3rd, 2014 in care orders, DNA, murder, news, paternity by sally

‘Re Z (Children) concerned an application in ongoing care proceedings for the Metropolitan Police to provide copies of DNA profiles held by them. The application was made by the children’s guardian and brought so that the paternity of the children could be determined. This issue arose as although the man alleged to be the children’s father (referred to in the judgment as X) insisted he was so, he refused to consent to DNA testing. X was seeking a role in the children’s lives.’

Regina (Nunn) v Chief Constable of Suffolk Constabulary: [2014] UKSC 37; [2014] WLR (D) 265

‘Where, after a defendant’s trial had ended in his conviction, material came to light which might cast doubt on the safety of the conviction, the prosecutors’ duty of disclosure required him to disclose that material to the defendant, unless there were good reason not to do so, and, where there was a real prospect that further inquiry might reveal such material, to make that inquiry. There was, however, no indefinitely continuing duty on police or prosecutors to respond to whatever inquiries the defendant might make for access to case materials to allow re-investigation.’
