Don’t politicise DNA bill: PM

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yesterday urged all parties not to politicise the Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) Identification Bill 2008 which was tabled in the Dewan Rakyat Monday.

Dismissing the assumption that the bill had connection with Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy charge, he said the government had wanted for a long time to take the matter relating to DNA and the act to parliament.

If DNA became an issue in the case, it was a coincidence, he said.

“This Act is good for us and for the future because it will be an important approach in efforts by the authorities to be more effective in combating crime,” he told reporters after the launch of the state-level Green Earth Programme by his wife Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah at Taman Merdeka in Batu Berendam.

He was asked to comment on claims by certain parties that the Act, which requires crime suspects to give their DNA samples, is politically motivated.
