Blood testing backlog blamed.

CLOSE to 3 000 drunk driving court cases against motorists in the Eastern Cape can’t proceed due to a backlog in blood testing by the Forensic Science Laboratory.


This was revealed by safety and liaison MEC Helen Sauls-August in answer to parliamentary questions from the Democratic Alliance (DA).


Sauls-August said the delays waiting for 2 871 blood test results in the Eastern Cape varied from six months to two years.
