Collecting DNA : The Supreme Court has decided to make the work of police officers easier, as they can now take genetic material (DNA) from serious suspects, even by force.
It obliges police officers in felony or misdemeanour cases to collect genetic material in order to establish the identity of the offender. Individual freedoms cannot be unrestricted when someone is suspected of committing crimes, resulting in harm to others. The rights of the perpetrator cannot override the rights of the victim.
The method of collecting genetic material (saliva, sweat, hair, etc.) is simple and does not require violence, unlike fingerprints.
Collection can be done from clothing, food residue, glass, toothpick, tissue, and even a handshake. In this way, offences that were previously pending or had gone to the file due to personal data will be solved, but people who could not prove their innocence will also be able to do so.
Nikolaos Pelekasis was trained in Greece and abroad in group and individual security and served in intelligence agencies.
