Irish damper up about DNA of the unconvicted

Just a postscript on the recent post about retention of DNA samples.

The Irish Times reports that their Human Rights Commission is of the view that retention of DNA samples for indefinite period of those who have not been convicted of a crime is "an unacceptable invasion of the right to privacy".

Makes sense, but sadly no sign of a public debate about such issues on this side of the world.
