DNA testing of citizens, expats pondered
June 30, 2015, 11:21 am

Deputy Premier and Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khalid Al-Hamad Al- Sabah has affirmed the keenness of the ministry’s security sectors to approve the law on compulsory DNA testing of all citizens and expatriates in Kuwait in order to enable the ministry in identifying the culprits who commit crimes, reports Al-Rai daily quoting reliable sources.

He said the security sectors also want to modify the law on detention, as the detention period allowed by the law currently is not sufficient to complete investigations of many cases. In this context, governmental sources revealed that any draft law on DNA testing will consider Sharia rules particularly on lineage and privacy, adding that the Cabinet’s Legal Committee will raise this matter when discussing the draft law.
