DNA tests without agreement

Samples of DNA can be taken from convicted offenders, people under protective treatment, accused or suspected people without their permission. The House of Parliament accepted this proposal with agreement of all parties.

There will be some limitations. DNA can be taken from suspected only with agreement of a public prosecutor. Minister of the interior says that DNA tests will be used only in case of relevant crimes.
It is not planned to make a database of all citizens of the Czech Republic.

This change will make investigation faster and more effective. Other changes are for example preventive using of handcuffs or forced taking of fingerprints.
