Huhne condemns police DNA "fishing expeditions"

Commenting on the Human Genetics Commission’s review of the Government’s DNA database, Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary, Chris Huhne said:

“The Government’s cavalier attitude towards DNA retention has put us in the ridiculous situation where people are being arrested just to have their DNA harvested.

“Ministers make no distinction between innocence and guilt and as a result everyone is treated like a suspect.

“Innocent people should be removed from the database and there should be a frank discussion about its effectiveness.”
