Drugs
analysis &
trace evidence.

The traces of drugs – however small – on cash or other items can be interpreted as an indication of a criminal lifestyle, giving law enforcement the power to seize possessions under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Drugs on banknotes

It is often in the interest of the defence to review the prosecution’s assertions relating to drugs on money, as the presence of drugs does not confirm the source, nor the activity of the defendant.

Aequitas Expert Witness Services Ltd has many years of multi-jurisdictional experience in interpreting drug contamination of banknotes; and has been involved in numerous high-profile cases where it has been a vital consideration.
