The Administration of Justice (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) Bill, 2011
This Bill seeks to repeal and replace the Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) Act, Chap. 5:34, which sought to use DNA information for forensic purposes, to classify tissue and body samples into two
categories (intimate and non-intimate) and to distinguish the procedure by which each type of sample is obtained.
The Bill would be inconsistent with sections 4 and 5 of the Constitution and is therefore required to be passed by a special majority of three-fifths of the members of each House.
