Accused in rape case wants DNA report

THE accused in the Subic rape case insisted yesterday that he be given a copy of the DNA patterns that police supposedly found on the underwear of the 22-year-old complainant to compare them with his blood sample.

Through his lawyer, US Marine Daniel Smith filed a second request to the court to subpoena the PNP-Crime Laboratory to release to him the DNA patterns for both male and female DNA profiles extracted from the complainant “Nicole’s” panties and a used condom.

Lawyer Benjamin Formoso said their copy of the findings would ensure there were no alterations or substitutions in the DNA analysis reports, now that Smith’s blood samples had been taken and were being examined for comparison.

“We’re not afraid of the DNA analysis, but they might change it,” he said.

The prosecution and the forensic DNA analyst who testified in court, Chief Insp. Francisco Supe Jr., provided the court and the defense lawyers only a summary of their DNA findings, Formoso claimed.

Supe had testified that Nicole’s panties tested positive for male and female DNA profile while the used condom had only female DNA profile.

The female DNA profile matched the blood sample taken from Nicole, but the identity of the male DNA profile has yet to be established because it has not been compared to those of Smith’s and the three other accused. Ferdinand Fabella - Manila Standard
