Compulsory DNA samples taking on arrest : would George Orwell had expected this measure?

As genetic technology comes in handy to justice


The Council of Ministers n. 109 approved the implementing regulations of Law 85/2009 .

This means  a genetic data bank will keep the files of all arrestees. Recording will last thirty years .

If innocence will be proven at a later stage, recordings shall be completely erased .

Let’s hope that this practice will useful to law enforcement agencies to tap the criminals.
