DNA database bill approved for 2nd, 3rd readings

The Knesset Legislative Committee approved Tuesday the second and third reading of a bill for establishing a police DNA database to help identify missing persons and unidentified bodies, Israel Radio reported Tuesday.
Figures presented to the committee showed that there are 500 registered missing persons and the Institute of Forensic Medicine has accumulated information on at least 320 unidentified bodies.
The new law would allow cross-referencing DNA from the unidentified bodies or personal items of missing persons in order to decipher the individual cases.
