New DNA technology could be used in Madeleine’s case

British authorities are waiting for the decision from the Attorney General to use a new technology, developed by Forensic Science Service, which allows scientists to find results in previously unusable genetic samples. The new technology, called “DNABoost” could “also help in cases such as that of missing Madeleine McCann - where forensic evidence appears to have been difficult to analyse”, according to the Daily Mail. The technology has already been tested and the results show it is “the biggest step forward in crime-fighting science for more than a decade”, according to the newspaper.

This statement deserves a thread of its own - the statement came through this afternoon on the ‘Sign Petition to Jacqui Smith’ thread - many of us (Mirror Forum MF) emailed her and the Home Office, demanding clarification of reports in Correio da Manha and on R.’s thread that the Home Secretary is delaying interviewing of the Tapas 7:

[quote=”******”]Please be advised, we have been asked by the Home Office to give their response to this thread, which follows:

“It is not our usual policy to comment on individual cases, however the Home Office has not received a formal request for Mutual Legal Assistance concerning the McCann investigation. It is not appropriate to comment further.”[unquote]

I have emailed this to Correio da Manha (I think!! via their website), but calling all Portuguese posters - Please, please publicise this response from the Home Office to the Mirror Forum to your national press!! We cannot allow the British government to try and hide any stalling on the McCann case by using the excuse of Portuguese bureaucracy!!

d´un site en français:"..............La PJ est en train de déterminer qui à fait quoi et avec qui, qui était où et pourquoi, comment s'est déroulée la soirée etc etc. Si la PJ trouve l'endroit où, d'après eux, le corps de la petite Madeleine devrait se trouver, ils pourront déterminer comment elle est décédée... élément qui semble être le seul qui manque au puzzle. Coupable ? Complice ? Victime ? Nous devrons attendre le procès pour éclaircir tous les détails de cette affaire. Mais, peut-on penser à un procès équitable ? En effet, les avocats des parents ne pourraient-ils pas jouer sur un droit fondamental de l'accusation ? Un principe bien connu, en droit, est que toute personne est supposée innocente tant que l'on n'a pas fait la preuve de sa culpabilité. ......
