What does this mean?

“Based on a laboratory examination by the Philippine National Police (PNP) Fingerprint Division, the visible latent print on a condom wrapper taken from a motel room where transgender Jennifer (birth name: Jeffrey) Laude was found dead does not match the standard finger and palm prints chart of US Marine Private First Class Joseph Scott Pemberton in the possession of police investigators,” reports Bebot Sison Jr. in The Philippine Star.

The report noted: “The laboratory examination was conducted last July 29 upon the request of Judge Roline Ginez-Jabalde of Olongapo City Regional Trial Court Branch 74.”

The murder trial of Laude resumed on Mon, Aug 3, but defense lawyers have to wait until Mon next week, Aug 10, to start their presentation of evidence and witnesses as few issues remain unresolved.

The report recalled that “Judge Jabalde had denied admission of some exhibits that public prosecutors had submitted on grounds that these were not properly identified and the persons who prepared or identified the exhibits were not presented.”
