The importance of seizing digital evidence

Bashar Issa, the Manchester based property developer who went bankrupt last year, has been arrested by police investigating an allegation of gross negligence and corporate manslaughter.

His disbanded BSC Group owed £69m when bankruptcy was announced in May 2009.

His arrest was relating to the ongoing investigation into the death of a worker at the Sarah Tower construction site on Dale Street in Manchester, which is still owned by part of his BSC Group.

Issa has since been released without charge, however, inquiries are continuing including the forensic investigation of a seized laptop computer, two BlackBerry devices and two mobile phones.

These are thought to contain financial transactions and bank accounts which could be crucial to the case.  The digital evidence is being used to trace cash and assets relating to Issa and his companies.
