Hello, I just viewed your post. Can you please advise as to what the question is do you require an answer to?
Customer
I've been asked to submit DNA for a criminal offence that took place 10 years ago and I thought I fulfilled all my post conviction requirements

What they Want your DNA for is to compare it to any other potential crimes that took place and help them build an even larger database. I would consult a criminal defence lawyer and see what your rights are with respect to not providing a sample
Customer
I thought it would be black and white. So I'll have to pay for a lawyer if I don't just want to give my DNA?
Customer
Are you a criminal defence lawyer?

The provisions of the criminal code the government taking a bottle of substances for law-enforcement purposes have been carefully designed to be respectful of constitutional requirements. The DNA profiles derived from bodily substances obtained from a suspect under a criminal code DNA in the investigation and prosecution of a designated a fence and are not to be included in the national DNA data Bank this approach is consistent with the constitutionally protected presumption of innocence and permits the use of the DNA information either to exclude the person as a suspect or as evidence against a person by establishing a link between that person and the alleged crime. The DNA profiles derived from bodily substances taken from offenders who have been convicted of a designated offence under a criminal code DNA data bank order are only to be included in the convicted offenders index. The national DNA data bank helps law-enforcement agencies identify or exclude offenders alleged to have committed other designated offences including those committed before the coming into force of the DNA identification act.
