Any moral, legal or political implications are irrelevant.
A sample was taken and a sample was analysed by a renowned lab.
Results were obtained from that analyses.
Even if those who took the sample are demonised and criminalised, it has no bearing whatsoever on the lab test results.
It's pitiful that the SCA had not already carried out its own analyses, and if it already has, it's even more pitiful that those results have not yet been published.
Is it a question of "two wrongs do not make a right" or "two wrongs make a right"?
In this case knowledge was being denied, those who felt they were being denied that knowledge took action in order to gain that knowledge.
It is legally and morally acceptable to repossess that which is yours and is being withheld from you.
The physical samples have been returned.
It's a question of ownership of, access to, and denial of knowledge.
"Entrapment" varies by jurisdiction.
