Dundee LibDems say - Protect innocent people's DNA

Dundee Liberal Democrats have today (Wednesday 2nd August) added their voice to the campaign to protect UK citizens against misuse of citizens' DNA.

The UK has the largest database of citizens' DNA in the world. Over 3 million people have their DNA information stored on police databases - five times higher as a proportion of our population than any other country.

And while DNA is a vital tool in crime-fighting, there are tens of thousands of people on the police database who have never even been charged with an offence - let alone convicted.

Cllr Fraser Macpherson, Dundee City Council LibDem Group Leader said, "Liberal Democrats believe that innocent people's DNA should not be held indefinitely on the police database. This is an important issue and we hope Dundee citizens will join our campaign to protect DNA information."
