Release murder victims bodies sooner

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

My Brother was murdered in January following a normal night out.

our family have still not been able to carry out a funeral because of current practice in scotland

In england and other countries,the victims body is released within 28days after a second post mortem is carried out, In Scotland the body is kept in a mortuary until an arrest has been made and instruction given for defence  post mortem

my brother has spend 5 months decomposing in a mortuary because the person who murdered him has a right to a second post mortem,which I would not argue but why can we not carry out these second post mortems after a 28day period and the results be stored and offered to the defence team if required

I am fighting now for future unfortunate families,Its too late for us but if we can change this for other families it would bring comfort to ours
