DNA database breach of rights

Not really sure which source to use for this story. The decision was unanimous. Judges from 17 countries including the UK agreed that keeping data indefinitely on people not even convicted was against human rights. Another "no-brainer". Thew Home Office could have followed Scottish practice and there would never have been a case. Lazy politicians and an over-mighty Home Office combine yet again! Who is giving them legal advice....or is the question why don't they take it? And why is it a matter for the Home Office anyway when the UK now has a Ministry of Justice? Another finals exam paper emerging here....
