26 Three distinct procedural failings
We have three instances of the police failing in their case procedures, on the face of it.
(1) They failed to lift fingerprints from the items in the suitcase – if you can believe it – but that’s what the record doesn’t show.
(2) Ditto the ‘Francis’ Rubaiyat – which should be referred to as the Phantom Rubaiyat. No fingerprints taken there either.
(3) Then there is the fingerprint card, the incomplete one.
Check what’s missing down there, and say it’s not important ..
