DNA database

Well we could all see this coming.

A high-flying city lawyer was fired from her £150,000-a-year job after a 'routine security check' revealed her DNA was held on the national database - over a 'false allegation' made against her.


  1. And another one! Last night the Tory wifey on Question Time said the Scottish government were keeping DNA only for 5 years.

    That's bullsh*te. The Scottish government keep it for three years but the Lord Advocate has the right to extend it for another 2 years if she has evidence to support her proposal.

    The difference is that for those who have not been convicted of an offence in Scotland their DNA will be destroyed.

    (I can't highlight things on comments or I would highlight my last paragraph).

  2. Oh, I should have added, you can refuse to give your DNA or any other information until you have spoken with your lawyer. That is your right.
