QuoteEvery prisoner should have the right to prove his innocense
That's assuming they are innocent in the first place.
That is law in every civilized conntry...innocent until proven guitly.
Yes I have internet access, but I still do not know where to find those laws.
I can understand, that questioning for DNA testing might delay an execution or sometimes is just for that simple reason.
But testing DNA is not costy anymore and can be done quickly and easily.
Several inmates demanded for ages that DNA which was found to be tested. In vain. They wher executed. Though they even consented in paying that test themselves.
Now take the szenario that tests would have proved them to be guilty.
Then they could have been executed years beforehand. and no such great costs would have amounted.
And if proven innocent, might be that the true offender would have been found.
Denying DNA testing blocks justice rather than helping it.
