DNA Bill tabled for second reading (Malaysiakini)


Despite protest from the opposition claiming that the DNA Bill, tabled for its first reading last week, was politically motivated, it is currently being read for a second time, allowing it to be debated today.

However, the bill was not supposed to be tabled for a second reading until the Universities and University Colleges Act (UUCA) Bill is tabled for its second reading, on a date yet to be fixed.

Last week, Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar insisted that the long-overdue bill had to be tabled at the ongoing Parliament sitting to help the police solve crimes.

He said the bill was all encompassing for cases under the Penal Code and anyone arrested or charged under the code would be subjected to DNA testing.

Besides the provision of mandatory DNA testing for suspects, the bill will also allow the setting up of a national DNA database, forensic DNA analysis and the use of DNA profiles.

The opposition, however, had a different take, claiming that the government was pushing through the bill at the present parliamentary sitting to bolster the sodomy charge against Pakatan de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.
So far Anwar has refused to give the police a DNA swab in their probe into the sodomy claim made by a former aide, fearing they might tamper with the sample to implicate him.

Anwar was charged with sodomy early this month and his case will be up for mention on Sept 10. The opposition stalwart faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Anwar is currently contesting in the Permatang Pauh by-election. Should he win, he would make a comeback to the August House after a 10-year absence.

why the rush for dna to be debated instead of UUCA Bill? of course this is due to sodomy case.

hamid pushed for it bcs of superior's orders which he will outright denies. bn is so desperate and fearful that anwar might come to power or jokingly saying - anwar is coming to sodomise them!!

i'm very confident even dna is a must, anwar will not make mistakes again. he will all day and night to RECORD & witness the process of his dna testing with his family members and reliable MPs plus professionals to ENSURE that this testing is NOT TAMPERED AGAIN & be used as disadvantage to him AGAIN !!

If anwar can prove he is impotent, that is END OF SAIFUL , BN , POLICE , AG & the Hospital involvement who make this sodomy case a mockery of hell to not only malaysia but THE WORLD !!!

so go do dna if has to but be sure to play dirty with dirty. no more mr nice guys to these barbarian nationals (BN) anymore !!

they don't respect you so no harm in disrespecting them too.

Oic....but if anwar is not guilty why worried? unless he want to hide something................as malay said....berani kerana benar....he need to tople the present government by hook or by crook a.s.a.p...as this is the only way to save his ash....the economic or others reason only a gimmick....his main objectives is to save his own shit....liwat case. But trust me....there is no MP to joint him, but maybe 1t least 9 MP will join BN or maybe PAS will join BN....the smaller the number the more posibble it will be materialised...but yes more ex Mp or Ex Adun will join anwar....desperate people will alway act as a desperado.......
