The Knesset passed in second and third reading a new law, which gives police significant additional authority. Police can now not only take DNA samples from suspects and criminals, but also more easily forward the information collected to police departments abroad. It is now sufficient that a person is suspected in a crime, investigated but not even indicted, to add his or her genetic profile into the database. 14 Knesset members voted for the law.
