Hi Taggart,

I can be a bit more specific than `mid December` and tell everyone that Wednesday 14th seems to be the day the report becomes public.

Remember, remember, 14th December !!


If a venue is announced I will post it here.

Remember Remember The 14th Of December.

Pat Wertheim has confirmed he has not had any warnings of criticisms from this enquiry.

Does this mean the other side of so-called experts at SCRO are to be criticised ?

Interesting times ahead for fingerprint evidence in Scottish cases if this is not resolved properly.

The only way out for them is to admit they got it wrong then continued to cover it all up thus acting criminally.

Heads will need to roll for what they did.

‘UK FORENSICS UNDER FIRE’: THE FINGERPRINT INQUIRY REPORTS – BRIEFING PAPER

2 PM WEDNESDAY 14TH DECEMBER 2011: RADISSON BLU HOTEL ARGYLE STREET, GLASGOW G2 8DL.

The long awaited report of the Fingerprint Inquiry Scotland will be published as shown above by the Inquiry Chairman, Sir Anthony Campbell.

The UK  Forensic Regulator Andrew Rennison  in recent  written evidence to the Parliamentary Science and Technology Committee on the implications of the closure of the Forensic Science Service stated:

Quote:
‘The Scottish Fingerprint Inquiry report and recommendations will be the result of a detailed and independent review of fingerprint methods, the results of which will have global implications for the quality standards that should underpin the use of fingerprint evidence.’

In a written statement to the same committee Dr Kevin Sullivan of the Forensic Science Service referred to:

Quote:
‘……. criticisms in the imminent Scottish Fingerprint Inquiry Report regarding the lack of demonstrable scientific rigor in our current national approach to presenting fingerprint evidence in the courts.’

At a time when expert evidence is under increasing fire  the contents and recommendations of this report are likely to add fuel to the call for  massive changes in   the way that fingerprint and forensic services are delivered across the world.

General  information on the fingerprint inquiry can be found at the Inquiry website:
http://www.thefingerprintinquiryscotland.org.uk/inquiry/21.html

This briefing is released by Iain McKie  as part of the lead up to a  media conference to be held on 14th December immediately after the report publication.

Very interesting times ahead.

I would like to wish The McKie family all the very best of everything. Iain you have worked so hard and so long on this...............you have persisted and persevered when others might have dropped it. I am sure you have been a right thorn in their side that they wished would go away.  Razz

More than a thorn Karen.

Lets all hope the way forensic evidence is presented to our courts gets an overhaul after this decision is released.

Like Karen I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the McKie's the very best for next week particularly Shirley.

Iain - you like my family have taken the same stance of persistence, persistence, persistence, when, like us, you know you have the determination and willpower to make a wrong, right.
You have been an enormus help to my family over the years with your help, comments and advice, and for that, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Kevins parents June, Hugh and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for next week and hope you and your family get the result that you rightly deserve. - Good luck.

Thanks Alan.

While I hope that next week's report brings closure for Shirley I also hope that it will initiate a proper investigation into the murder of Marion Ross, point the way to a better system for the preparation and presentation of fingerprint and forensic expert evidence and hopefully offer some encouragement to those who seek justice.

I will continue to pursue these goals and also do what I can to support and advise those who have fought the good fight for years in the face of a system that appears to be blind, deaf and dumb.

Like yourself however I continue to be extremely sceptical of the capacity of the system to heal itself as the same mistakes are repeated time and again.

That said this report gives the Scottish Government, Crown Office and SPSA the opportunity to right wrongs. Let’s give them the chance.

I have enormous admiration for June, Hugh, yourself and your family and my wish for 2012 is that you find the truth about Kevin’s tragic death and that this truth brings you the peace you all deserve.

Best wishes,

Iain
