Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: A com­mit­tee headed by Gen­eral In­ves­ti­ga­tion Depart­ment’s Di­rec­tor Ma­jor Gen­eral Fa­had Al-Dous­sary is cur­rently work­ing on the fi­nal copy of the ex­ec­u­tive chart of the DNA pro­fil­ing law num­ber 78/2015 pend­ing its re­fer­ral to the cab­i­net for ap­proval, in­formed sources said.

The on­go­ing dis­cus­sions on the law’s reg­u­la­tions in­cluded link­ing all cit­i­zens and ex­pa­tri­ates’ trans­ac­tions with their DNA pro­file, the sources added. How­ever, the sources re­marked that more flex­i­ble reg­u­la­tions were be­ing con­sid­ered in or­der to en­cour­age cit­i­zens and ex­pats to have their DNA data filed, know­ing that this data will only be used for se­cu­rity rea­sons and with ut­most con­fi­den­tial­ity with the sole pur­pose of pro­tect­ing na­tional se­cu­rity. The sources also noted that visi­tors’ DNA data would be taken im­me­di­ately on en­try to Kuwait. —Al-An­baa
