Waxed eyebrows have been at the center of the trial of John Ibrahim's girlfriend with analysis showing that they came from former Sydney broker Ryan Watsford, although the DNA of another man was on the wax strip.

Sarah Budge, 29, pleaded not guilty of three weapons charges after the NSW Police found a defaced Glock 26 gun and a magazine with about 16 bullets in its Double Bay unit in August 2017.

Australian forensic biologist, Greg Robertson, testified during her trial on Wednesday, revealing that he was asked not only to test for DNA left on the stolen gun trigger, but also to & # 39; pair of waxed human eyebrows & # 39; To test.

The biologist got the eyebrows for analysis and also the material and wax that was used to pull them off someone's face.

In the NSW court, Mr. Robertson said he had the DNA of an unidentified man – named & # 39; Male One & # 39; – had found on the trigger of the gun and on the black cap in which it was hidden.

He explained to the court that DNA found on a & # 39; tire lift & # 39; from the substance used to remove the eyebrows also corresponded to the DNA profile of male.

Male One's DNA did not match the reference samples provided to Robertson by the police.

The court heard that Budge had provided the police with a DNA stick to her police, but the court heard that the reference samples did not contain a sample of John Ibrahim.

However, the hairs themselves corresponded to one of the reference samples that Mr. Robertson received from the police – that of Mr. Watsford.

Budge & # 39; s lawyer, Simon Buchen SC, also questioned Mr. Robertson about a research by researchers in March 2018 about the potential of a & # 39; family comparison & # 39; against the DNA of Male One.

Robertson said that while he was initially unaware, the police wanted to compare the DNA of Male One with that of one of John Ibrahim & # 39; s brothers, later remembering that this was the case.

Mr. Robertson said, however, that he informed the police of the potential for a false negative result when comparing the DNA of the siblings because they only share 25 percent of their DNA.

The court heard that after Mr. Robertson's opinion, the test was never conducted.

Mr. Buchen has previously suggested that Mr. Ibrahim or one of his associates had hidden the gun and ammunition in Budge's wardrobe before the police found them.

The trial before Judge David Arnott continues.
