The State Duma approved in the second reading the collection of genomic information from all suspects

The State Duma adopted in the second reading a bill on the mandatory collection of genomic information of all suspects. The amendments of the deputy Alexei Kurinny (KPRF), who proposed to collect the DNA of only those suspected and accused of committing grave and especially grave crimes, were rejected.

The draft law assumes that DNA samples will be taken from all convicts and suspects, as well as during administrative arrest. Now DNA analysis is taken only from those convicted of serious and especially serious crimes, as well as any crimes against sexual integrity.

The bill was submitted to the Duma on November 3, 2020. Anatoly Vyborny, Deputy Chairman of the Security Committee (United Russia), told Kommersant that the preparation of the draft for the second reading was delayed due to different positions on who it is necessary to collect genomic information from.

Details - in the material "Kommersant" "Genetic for memory".
