    Galloway asking about the importance of lab accreditation, referring that Col.Otto noted it as a 'nice to have'. Olckers disagrees


    https://twitter.com/ajnarsee

    Olckers: accreditation is a must have, it is essential, shows the public that the minimum standard is in place

    Olckers: they must comply on that specific day when visited by the auditor..

    J Desai: who audits what you do?

    Olckers: I am monitored by the Health Professions Council SA

    J Desai: so we must accept your word? Olckers: if there was concern I would have been reporter to HPCSA

    Galloway referring to Chapter 5 of an SAPS act, regulations in relation to forensic analysis. Olckers unaware of this parameter
    "How could you not be aware? You're an expert in this field" - Desai to Olckers


    https://twitter.com/ajnarsee

    Olckers: if lab don't meet these standards, results cannot be valid

    Galloway: Now refers to Chapter 5 of SAPS act, regulations in relation to forensic analysis

    Olckers: she is not aware of the SAPS act

    J Desai: how can you not be aware if you are an expert in the field?

    After Olckers' testimony I had started to feel a bit nervous about the DNA results but Galloway and Desai are doing a brilliant job at demolishing her. Such a shame we got Masipa for the OP trial. Desai would have been brilliant methinks.

    Adv. Galloway referring back to Olckers' CV and her affiliation with SANAS


    https://twitter.com/ajnarsee

    Olckers: I'm not part of SANAS, have done some work for them, sat on some committees

    To use a popular idiom - those who can do, those who can't teach.

    Galloway is doing an excellent job.

    Adv. Galloway confirms again with Olckers that accreditation is NB for forensic laboratories.

    G: you moved from academic human genetic research to establish DNA bio tech?

    Olckers: nothing sinister in services delivered by DNA bio tech, we help labs with accreditation

    G: are you familiar with Luminol and Blue star? Olckers: I have never used it, outside my expertise

    G: would you be able to dispute it? Adv Combrink objects.


    ( Have my ears deceived me? Did I just hear Combrink object to Galloway repeating a question?! )

    When giving her EiC she came across as quite pompous and full of self-importance. I’m enjoying seeing her taken down a peg or two.
