Statement on testing re Bain case

Statement on testing re Bain case

Police announced on 11th July 2013 that we would be applying to the court for access to the originals of the fingerprints taken from Robin Bain.

These will be examined thoroughly to see if they assist in determining the nature of the marks on Robin Bain's thumb. As part of this process police will also carry out tests on the firearm and the magazines involved. Mr Bain's advocates will be present at these tests.

The results will be subject to a full scientific analysis and it is likely to be several weeks before the outcome is known. We reiterate what we said on 11 July that, whilst it is hoped the examination will provide greater clarity, it also remains a real possibility that even after the originals have been examined there will still be no definite conclusion regarding the marks.
