Heist: Twins With Criminal Records Free After DNA Evidence Fails to Distinguish Between Them

Two twins with criminal records were freed after DNA evidence linked them to the scene of a multi-million euro jewelry robbery. The problem was that German law requires criminals to be found guilty individually; the DNA of the twins matched too closely to clearly identify which of them was at the scene and there was no other evidence to help with the task. As a result Hassan and Abbas O. are walking free. [Boing Boing]
