Report No. 271

G. Trinidad and Tobago

5.20 Trinidad and Tobago passed The Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) Identification Act, 2000 to provide for DNA forensic analysis, to include a DNA report as evidence, to provide for the use of DNA testing to determine parentage, and other related matters. It provided for obtaining DNA samples by consent but also lays down a procedure for obtaining a tissue sample by a Court order. Under this there is also a provision where a child or an incapable person is detained, arrested or charged for an offence, a tissue sample shall not be taken from that child or that incapable person except by an order of a court, because they may not be fit to provide genuine consent.
