Abstract

This article explores the implications for human rights of retaining a person’s DNA when there has been no conviction in the courts. The right to privacy, the presumption of innocence and the interest in not being stigmatised by the State are considered in turn, to determine if they pose a challenge to the retention of an innocent person’s genetic material.
