If the police conducted a Section 18(1) search of my house and seized several items, but omitted one from the list of items they took, can that unrecorded item still be used as evidence?
What information would you like to know?
As a result of an argument with my wife, she claimed (wrongly) there were indecent pictures on my pc.
the police arrested me and seized a variety of electronic devices and phones, but in the list they showed me one pc was missing...
i dont think it is a big deal but i just wondered what the legal situation was if they didnt record the item as taken, when i know it was... presumably it is in their hands somewhere but they've misplaced it or not written it down
I dont believe so but i just wondered the impact of missing documentation is?
